The shock death of a young Australian Rules player in Las Vegas yesterday remains a mystery.

The 22 year old Port Adelaide footballer John McCarthy fell to his death from the Flamingo Hotel, only one day into a season-ending trip with teammates.

McCarthy had been at the Flamingo Hotel, not the hotel in which they were staying, after separating from his teammates, and his fall before daybreak was seen by several witnesses.
