The sudden death of a beloved 19-year-old barista has rocked her family and friends.

Krystal Taylah Monks was found unconscious at her partner’s home in Bundamba, Ipswich, about 9.30pm Saturday.

She sustained critical head injuries as a result of falling off her bed, according to multiple media reports.

Queensland Ambulance rushed the teenager to Princess Alexandra Hospital, where she later died on Sunday night.

Tributes are now flowing for the Coffee Club employee, with friends describing her as a “very fun and outgoing person” who was able to make anyone smile.

“You are one of the most amazing, loving and caring people that I know. You will be missed by everyone. Let your soul rise high and free and enjoy paradise … Forever 19,” one online tribute read.

“I’m really sorry to the family and loved ones of hers. She was an amazing person and is gone way too soon,” said another.

“Rest in peace gorgeous even though we weren’t close. You didn’t deserve to die. I hope heaven is treating you way better up there and sending hugs to your family,” a third read.

Meanwhile the young woman’s family have also expressed their sorrow online, with one relative stating: “It’s the not knowing what happened that hurts”.

“She would of been 20 in two weeks’ time. Gone far too young,” another family member said.

As police continue their investigations, forensic officers have reportedly cordoned off the property to search for evidence.

While it’s unclear who contacted emergency services, reports suggest a man was at the home when the incident occurred.

Queensland Police are continuing their investigations into the sudden death, which is being treated as suspicious, with no other further information available at this stage.

Officers from the Yamanto Police Station have since launched an investigation into her death, with dectives from the homicide squad assisting with inquiries.

No charges have been laid at this stage.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000 or Policelink via its online suspicious activity form.
