Jodie Fellows: Mystery surrounds death of market trader, who died after arriving at hospital with serious injuries
The sudden death of a woman who died just hours after arriving at hospital with serious injuries will be investigated by homicide detectives.
Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of Jodie Fellows, who died at Collie Hospital, about two hours’ drive south of Perth, on Thursday.
At least 10 detectives searched his Southwest home Friday for clues to try to piece together what could have caused his serious injuries.
After searching the quiet neighborhood, police left the residence with several large brown paper bags containing evidence.
Police said that while they would approach the death from “all angles,” the Collie community should not worry about any lingering danger.

“It’s not something the people of Collie need to worry about,” Detective Senior Sergeant Stephen Cleal said.
“We have no safety concerns regarding this issue.”
Two women were seen speaking to detectives as they canvassed the area on Friday, with police confirming a man in his 40s was helping them with their investigation.
It is understood the man was known to Ms Fellows.

A resident who wished to remain anonymous said Western Australia that he heard loud noises coming from Ms. Fellow’s home on Wednesday evening.
The man said that although loud noises were not uncommon in the neighborhood, he had never heard noises like this before.
“(There were) two loud bangs like a gunshot late (Wednesday night),” he said.
Ms Fellows is said to have worked at the popular Bunbury Farmers Market.
