A British globetrotter who was found dead in a Swiss hotel room in 'a sex game gone wrong' hails from one of the country's top racehorse breeding families and was enjoying a round the world trip as a present from her multi-millionaire father.
Anna Florence Reed, 22 - whose late grandfather is equine legend Guy Reed - had been heard arguing with her German boyfriend shortly before her death on Tuesday.
Her super-rich dad Clive Reed, 62, a trustee of a renowned stud, is understood to have flown to Switzerland with his elder daughter Millie, 24, following the tragedy.
Anna had a privileged upbringing in leafy Harrogate, North Yorkshire, and was educated at the town's renowned private school Ashville College, which charges up to £10,000 a term.
German-born Marc Schatzle, 29, who calls himself ‘Marc Dirtywhite’, claimed Anna died as the result of a ‘sex game gone wrong’. Swiss police yesterday said he had been formally accused of intentional murder.
