Josie Clacher — daughter of Rachel Clacher, co-founder of phone answering company Moneypenny — died Tuesday morning in the town of Alaro.
The Telegraph reported the teen girl being found just on 7am, Tuesday morning.
Responding paramedics were unable the revive the teen, who’d been vacationing with friends and relatives, including her mother.
Questions remained as to how exactly the girl ended up apparently drowning.

One of three sisters, Josie attended the prestigious boarding school Moreton Hall in north Shropshire, England.

Josie Clacher death unexplained: Latest statistic in British tourist youth overindulgence?
Not immediately clear is how Josie ended up at the bottom of the pool and whether the teen girl had been under the influence leading up to the tragedy.
Majorca is known to be a draw among British tourist youth who are well known for their excessive ‘partying under the sun’– sometimes with tragic results. A state of affairs that has over the years led to ‘fed up locals’ demanding tighter alcohol and nightclub laws and the closing of venues that break codes- until they simply open under a new name.
Investigators are still probing the cause of Josie’s death and a postmortem examination is due to take place, including a toxicology report.
