This morning, 1st of December, a subdued atmosphere enveloped the Pacific Werribee Shopping Centre in Hoppers Crossing as authorities responded to the discovery of a woman believed to be in her twenties found dead before 10 am after collapsing. While the incident prompted a notable police presence, authorities have clarified that the death is not considered suspicious.
The identity of the deceased woman has not been disclosed, and the police are in the process of notifying her next of kin. The incident led to the closure of a substantial section within the shopping centre, as investigators conducted their examination.

The closure is anticipated to be temporary and is expected to be lifted once the authorities conclude their examination.
