An emotional funeral has been held for Bree Keller, a 22-year-old model from Sydney, who died on Saturday night whilst travelling in a $200,000 supercar with three men, who were unknown to any of her family. However, as investigations continue, it appears that the mystery may have been solved.
The bikini model, who had established a strong following on Instagram, tragically burned to death when the Nissan GT-R R35 that she was travelling in was involved in a high speed crash in Sydney.
Keller’s family have been left heartbroken by the incident, which claimed the “free spirited” model and hairdresser. “She was a free spirit. Very, very attractive girl, very funny, we just all loved her to bits,” her stepfather Peter Francis said. “She was a family girl, and we’re all just so devastated that we have lost her. We’re just basically waiting for Briana to walk through the door because we can’t believe it. She was full of life. It’s just a waste, an absolute waste,” he said. “It was just a tragic mistake.”
To add insult to injury, Keller’s family were left clueless as to why the 22-year-old was even in the car. “We have no idea how she became to get in that car,” Mr Francis said. “We don’t know any of the people in that car… she didn’t know them either. We’re just at a loss.” However, it now transpires that Keller DID, in fact, know the men.
Keller was in the car with brothers Steve and Jeff Nasr, who also died in the incident, and Joseph Bagala, who survived but remains in a serious condition in hospital.
It is still unknown which of the Nasr brothers was behind the wheel of the $200,000 high performance vehicle, which had been purchased only six days before the incident. However, a relative told the Daily Mail
that Jeff was the last one seen at the wheel after he headed into the city to collect Steve on the night of the crash.
The police have confirmed that the car was travelling at “considerable speed” down the street, before the driver lost control, causing it to flip and burst into flames by Darling Harbour.
Tragically, Keller and the Nasr brothers died at the scene. While father-of-four, Joseph Bagala survived, escaping with serious burns, broken ribs and cuts after being pulled from the wreckage by four police officers moments before it caught fire. He remains in a serious but stable condition at St. Vincent’s hospital.
Kellers family were left puzzled by the incident, perplexed as to why she would have been in the car with three men that they had never even heard of. But, after the incident, the truth came to light when a relative of the Nasr brothers confirmed that Keller was actually dating 31-year-old Steve.
“Bree and Steve were together, but she recently had another boyfriend so it was a bit delicate,” the family member said, referencing Keller’s long term boyfriend, Isaac Treml.
However, despite this revelation, Treml posted a long tribute to Keller on Instagram, in which he wrote:
“My world has come crashing down knowing I will never get to see you again. You’re the best thing that ever happen to me. You taught me to be a better dad, how to love and be loved. You showed me what life is really about and most of all you helped my life become so positive with the love you gave me. You’re my best friend my love for life and most of all the girl I wanted to grow old with.”
The tragic incident has sent shockwaves across Australia, with the country mourning the loss of the young beauty and the two Nasr brothers, who were well respected and loved.
Thankfully, Kellers family now have the vital information they needed to help them piece the story together. Our thoughts are with them during this difficult time.
