A part-time model from Maryland who was studying in Australia was found dead in her college dorm room, police said Tuesday. Emily Spickler, 19, was an exchange student at the University of Southern Queensland in Toowoomba, near the city of Brisbane. Hit the jump to read the rest of the story.

The blue-eyed blond beauty was found dead around 6:30 Monday. While investigators saw no evidence of foul play they still haven’t determined how she died.

Her sudden death plunged family and friends into mourning. Her parents were reportedly en route to pick up her body and bring her home.

“This is unbelievable,” Syreeta Smith of the Nova Agency in Baltimore, which represented Spickler, told The Daily News. “I spoke to her a week ago telling me she was in Australia and to let her know if there were any modeling opportunities there.”

The 5-foot-9 Spickler had walked the catwalk and done “hair shows and things like that,” Smith said. “She was lovely. A lovely girl.”

University spokesman Barnard Lillis said Spickler’s fellow exchange students were “in a complete shock.”

“We are offering counseling,” Lillis told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

Friends set up an “R.I.P. Emily Spickler” Facebook page and began posting tributes.

“God has another beautiful and amazing angel with him in heaven,” wrote one pal.

Spickler was only a couple weeks into a year-long stint at the university and regularly updated her Twitter account, according to the Brisbane newspapers.

“Falling head over heels in love with Brisbane,” she wrote on July 31.

Spickler’s crush on the city apparently cooled and by Aug. 8 the aspiring fashion writer, who had done an internship at Los Angeles Magazine, wrote that she was pining for California.

“Missing missing missing Southern California,” she wrote on Aug. 8.
