Photographer Maxine Sewell, 32, was found hanging from a cliff near the Story Bridge by early morning commuters this morning. It is believed she fell while taking photos during last night’s fierce electrical storm.
Fortitude Valley police are saying little about today’s grim discovery.
‘This just looks like a terrible accident. Her phone and handbag were neatly placed under a bush near from where she fell. A tripod was discovered at the base of the cliff,’ said Seargent John Williams.
Cyclist David Sheehan was one of the first to find her body dangling from branch at the edge of Wilson Outlook Reserve.
‘It looks as though her camera’s neck-strap became hooked on something as she slid down the ledge. I didn’t believe what I was seeing. I just thought someone was playing a practical joke and had hung a mannequin up there.’
Maxine Sewell’s character plays a vital role in the early part of this book’s narrative. By employing someone like her to kick things off, we’re able to explore the world of professional wedding photography in Brisbane.
Although a relatively harmless, benign business, the dangers are still very real.
Maxine is not a landscape photographer. She’s a wedding photographer trying to prove she can mix it up with the best and outdo fellow wedding photographer Mitchell Felding by capturing the perfect lightning shot, she winds up dead. It looks like an accident.
We find out Maxine hasn’t been an angel. She’s collected a few enemies. Her drunken rants and conniving ways has left a trail of destruction and there are quite a few people who won’t miss her.
The question is: Was her death an accident? – Michael Forman (Author of SEETHINGS)
