LONDON, ENG. (THECOUNT) — Ella-Louise Tunney has been identified as the young executive found dead in her parent’s backyard hot tub after being missing for three days.

Tunney, 26, drowned in a hot tub at the family home after suffering an apparent epileptic fit. Her body was discovered three days later.


According to WEAWW, a search for Tunney was launched on June 23 last year after she couldn’t be located at her parents’ home in Eton Wick, near Windsor in Berkshire.

After search crews combed nearby fields and her place of work and found nothing, officials then focused on her parent’s home.

Tunney was later discovered drowned in the inflatable hot tub after lifting its cover, which was said to have shut down due high winds.

Tunney was employed as the head of settlements at the financial services firm Alpha FX.

The inquest heard that Tunney had been diagnosed with epilepsy as a teenager but had managed to keep it under control by taking medication.

A postmortem examination ruled the death as accidental and cause of death as drowning after having an epileptic fit.
