Police have named the woman who died mysteriously in Dannevirke as Cheryl Potham.

The body of the 49-year-old local woman was found when police were called to an Empire St property about 7am on Wednesday.

At the time, Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Simon Harrison said police were treating the death as unexplained, but not suspicious.

An autopsy was carried out in Wellington this week, and the case has been referred to the coroner.

What effect will a potential ban on booze at Rugby Sevens 2015 have on you?

I'd no longer go ... what's the point?

I'd buy a ticket, with rugby the priority again.

Ban or no ban, I'm still going.

I'd rather watch 'Wheel of Fortune' on a 24/7 loop than 7s.
