The victim’s identity is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
Saini said some members of the party remained and are cooperating with police.
Laura, who lives near the house, said she had her windows open because of the weather and was awoken by the commotion.
“There were police lights and young people leaving. One woman was crying inconsolably,” Laura said.
“This is a good neighbourhood and everyone has surveillance so it won’t take long to figure it out.”
Emily, another neighbour, said the house is notorious for having large parties.
“We all know about that house. It’s bad for the neighbourhood,” she said.
“This is tragic. Young people should find better things to do.”
