Investigation continues into Melbourne CBD death

Victoria Police have released four men last night following the discovery of a body in a Melbourne serviced apartment.

The woman is yet to be formally identified, but police say she was wearing a black long-sleeved top, blue denim shorts and white runners.

None of them have told reporters who the woman was or how they knew her.

Police are testing for the presence of illicit drugs.

It is believed she returned to the hotel room on the 10th floor of Oaks on Market with the men on Saturday night.

Four men, all in their late 20s and early 30s, from New South Wales and the ACT, were arrested and later released from custody and are helping police with the investigation.

The Courier Mail reports that one of the group said he had thought the woman's death was "one big stitch-up [.] but turns out it wasn't".

The Oaks on Market building in Melbourne's CBD.

Some of the men were seen downstairs at the club between 2.30am and 3am.

Officers are still investigating and say further reports are expected to assist with her cause of death.

The group stayed around the apartment, between Collins Street and Flinders Lane, for much of the day on Sunday as homicide detectives combed the scene.
