Mystery around Australian Instagram model Sinead McNamara's death deepens
Local media has reported a crew member found Ms McNamara's body on the back of the boat on Friday and alerted port authorities. Loved ones posted to Ms McNamara's Facebook and Instagram accounts sharing fond memories with the young Instagram model.

On younkers.com, a cryptic message was posted late this week saying, "We've got great news. We appreciate your loyalty & look forward tobeing able to serve you again soon". The company for about a year had been trying to sell itself but without success. We can not speak to the purchaser's future plans with the company.

The Holland Younkers, an anchor location in struggling The Shops at Westshore, was almost empty as the store wrapped up its last day of business on Wednesday, Aug. 29. But it stumbled in a new era in which consumers are used to fast fashion and door step delivery from Amazon and other retailers.

Bon-Ton filed for bankruptcy February 4, and was unable to find an investor willing to keep the company going.
