Not a train driver, but can confirm the fatality as relayed via 6PR. They first broke at is a 'disruption' and then mentioned the rail replacement buses.

As no other media outlets have reported it, there's obviously no suspicious circumstances surrounding it....

FYI, I have heard from PTA management that there are roughly 50-odd deaths on the Transperth rail system a year. Most of these are suicide, howver a few are accidental, which you will usually hear on the media about.

Unfortunatly this a routine part of operating a metropolitian railwaya system - I just hope metal health improves in the future...
