A cause of death is yet to be revealed for a Geelong woman found lifeless in Melbourne's Chinatown district.

Natalina Angok's alleged killer Christopher Allen Bell, also aged 32, faced court on Thursday charged with one count of murder.

The court was told he needs treatment for schizophrenia.

Bell, from Phillip Island, is due to face a magistrate again on Friday.

An autopsy was conducted overnight to determine Ms Angok's cause of death. The results are yet to be made public.

She was found at the intersection of Little Bourke Street and Celestial Avenue just after 6.30am on Wednesday.

Detectives quickly declared her death suspicious.

Ms Angok is believed to have been found by a member of the public.
