Internal affairs detectives have been called in to help investigate how a 37-year-old woman died in Broome on Tuesday night, with confirmation the woman “came into contact” with police before she died. Police were called to Clementson Street in Old Broome at about 11.15pm after a group of people driving in the area noticed the woman lying in the middle of the road badly injured. St John Ambulance and police attempted CPR but the woman died shortly after arriving at Broome Hospital. Homicide detectives and major crash investigators from Perth have been called in to help investigate the circumstances of how she died. The West Australian has been told however the woman’s death is not being treated as a homicide at this stage. But a WA Police spokeswoman confirmed internal affairs officers from Perth would also be travelling to Broome due to the fact the woman came into contact with police during the evening. 7NEWS reported Wednesday that the woman may have been intoxicated, when she was picked up by police and dropped off at a camp on Demco Drive in Old Broome, not far from where she was found badly injured hours later. Superintendent Greg Crofts said while the woman’s death was unexplained at this stage, it is likely she was hit by a car. “We have homicide detectives and major crash investigators coming up to assist in our investigation and we have blocked off Clementson Street between Blackman Street and Hunter Street to continue our forensic investigation,” he said. “If anyone has any CCTV or dashcam footage of the incident between 10 and 11.30pm last night, please contact police as soon as possible.” Superintendent Crofts said because it can get dark in the Broome streets at night, someone might not have realised what has happened. “The sooner someone comes to us and reports the crash the better,” he said. Anyone with information can contact police on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
