An Australian man is "devastated" about the death of New Zealander Warriena Tagpuno Wright but denies having anything to do with her fall from his Gold Coast apartment balcony.

Wright, 26, fell 14 floors to her death from the balcony of the Avalon apartments in Surfers Paradise early on Friday.

She had spent the night with Gable Tostee at his apartment, however he was not there when police arrived at the scene.

Tostee, 28, was questioned by police on Friday and released without charge. He has since been staying at his parents' house, which police visited over the weekend when they collected CCTV footage.

He took to an online bodybuilding forum to insist he had nothing to do with Wright's sudden death.

"I've been advised not to go into details but all I will say is that I absolutely did NOT cause this girl to fall and that I am devastated about what happened to her," he wrote.

Tostee's lawyer has been contacted for comment.

Queensland police are continuing to call for anyone who may have security footage of the Avalon apartments at the time of Wright's death to come forward.

Detectives were expected to provide an update on the investigation this afternoon but later cancelled a scheduled press conference, siting "operational reasons".

On Friday, neighbours told reporters they heard arguing in Tostee's apartment in the lead-up to Wright's death.

Several residents recounted hearing a woman's screams.

Delwyn Grooby, who said she was staying in a neighbouring apartment complex, said she heard three distinct screams on the night of Wright's death.

"There was fear in her second scream that made me feel sick and frightened for her," Grooby said.

"In the silence that followed I prayed that someone had come to her rescue. When the third scream came I really can't explain how I felt."

Wright had been in Australia for a friend's wedding and was days away from heading back home to Lower Hutt.

Known to friends as "Rrie", the 26-year-old was the daughter of a church deacon and passionate about animal rights.
