A post-mortem examination concluded that she had died of 'multiple injuries', including haemorrhaging resulting from a traumatic brain injury, coroner Darren Salter confirmed. Despite previous online speculation about foul play, Mr Salter said there were 'no suspicious circumstances or third party involvement', and it was likely that Ms Shaw had been dead for 'four to six days' before her body was discovered.

The last thing I want is sun stroke, I thought. Still, striding out, I loved the feeling of warmth on my skin, the grass brushing against my bare legs. Then, on a hiking holiday in Perth with my mate Mark Daniels, 28, I really decided to throw caution to the wind. Trudging through the wilderness, foliage caressing my waist, each step brought with it a starburst of sensations. One day, I was in Cairns on a long naked hike when I decided to skinny dip at an isolated spot to cool off. When the water got cold, I dressed just as two older women arrived. They told me they were sisters.
Nude recreation refers to recreational activities which some people engage in while nude. Historically, the ancient Olympics were nude events. There remain some societies in Africa, Oceania, and South America that continue to engage in everyday public activities —including sports— without clothes, while in most of the world nude activities take place in either private spaces or separate clothing optional areas in public spaces. Occasional events, such as nude bike rides, may occur in public areas where nudity is not otherwise allowed. While nude recreational activities may include sports such as tennis or volleyball, nude sporting activities are usually recreational rather than competitive or organized. Recreation is any human activity done for pleasure or " play " during leisure time as opposed to those activities that are necessary for survival. Historically, this means that recreation only existed after human society reached the stage where leisure time existed, perhaps during the late stone age Upper Paleolithic , as shown by the first appearance of cave paintings and musical instruments. Modern concepts of recreation begin with ancient civilizations.
