Five victims in Sydney shopping centre stabbings named

Five of the six people who died in the Sydney shopping centre stabbings have been named.

A new mum, the daughter of a well-known Australian businessman, an architect and a security guard are among the dead after Joel Cauchi went on a mass-stabbing spree at the Westfield Shopping Centre in Bondi Junction, Australia.

Saturday’s attack was brought to a stop when lone police officer Amy Scott shot and killed Cauchi.

Police have said that the 40-year-old had a history of mental health issues, and they do not believe the attack was terror-motivated.

Ashlee Good

Ashlee Good, 38, a new mum, tried to save her nine-month-old baby Harriet when she was attacked.

She was said to have passed her baby off to two men after she was badly injured.

In a statement, ABC reported her family said: “Today we are reeling from the terrible loss of Ashlee, a beautiful mother, daughter, sister, partner, friend, all-round outstanding human, and so much more.

“We appreciate the well wishes and thoughts of members of the Australian public who have expressed an outpouring of love for Ashlee and our baby girl.”

At least six killed and several injured after attack in Sydney

The family added that after “hours of surgery” baby Harriet was doing well and they offered their thanks to the men who cared for her during the attack.

In one of her most recent posts, Ms Good wrote on her LinkedIn page: “And just like that, seven beautiful months have passed and it’s time to return to the office.

“It’s not lost on me what a privilege it is to become a parent.

“And then to be gifted some extra time away from work to spend with your child… it’s very special.”

Dawn Singleton

The daughter of a well-known Australian businessman was also named as one of the six victims killed in the attack.

Dawn Singleton, 25, is the daughter of John Singleton, 82, a well-known Australian entrepreneur who built his success through advertising.

She was the oldest daughter of Mr Singleton’s marriage to his sixth wife.

According to Ms Singleton’s LinkedIn profile, she had studied a degree in communications at the University of Technology Sydney.

Ms Singleton worked at the White Fox Boutique who released a tribute on Instagram.

It said: “In loving memory of Dawn. Over the weekend we lost not only an employee of White Fox but someone special to us who felt like a family member.

“We are all truly devastated by this loss. Dawn was a sweet, kind-hearted person who had her whole life ahead of her. She was really amazing.

On Sunday, New South Wales Police confirmed a fourth victim, 47-year-old Jade Young.

Ms Young worked as an architect in Sydney.

She was reportedly a member of Bronte Surf Life Saving Club, who issued a statement cancelling a weekend event.

We are here to support the community, and our heartfelt condolences go out to everyone affected.”
