TV Personality Charlotte Dawson found dead

LAST UPDATED // Monday, 24 February 2014 10:21 Written by // Sabine Brix

Former Australia's Next Top Model judge and Mardi Gras host Charlotte Dawson was found dead in her home in non-suspicious circumstances in Woolloomooloo on Saturday.

The NZ-born television presenter was also an anti-bullying campaigner and LGBT rights advocate who had hosted the Mardi Gras parade twice, when it was televised on Foxtel.

Dawson suffered a long battle with depression and was hospitalised in late 2012 after an extreme bullying campaign against her on Twitter.

Friends and family members became concerned when Dawson, a prolific Twitter user, had failed to tweet in almost a day and failed to arrive at a scheduled lunch date.

It is believed her body was found by her real estate agent.
