The victim has been named as 21-year-old Savvina Demetriou who was found unresponsive and face down on her bed at around midday on Sunday.
The alarm was raised by the victim’s mother who had been ringing the doorbell repeatedly at her daughter’s apartment before finally calling the police.
Police officers forced their way through the door only to find the victim unconscious in her bedroom. Foul play has so far not been ruled out as investigations are still at a preliminary stage.
An autopsy is expected to take place on Monday at Larnaca General Hospital.
Larnaca CID are investigating.
