Fun-loving Michaela had passion for travel
A year ago, Michaela Dunn was donating pencils and books to kids at a remote school in Fiji.
On Tuesday, the “beautiful, loving” 24-year-old lost her life, allegedly at the hands of Mert Ney, who is accused of slitting the throat of the sex worker just before his rampage through Sydney’s CBD.
Yesterday, her mother said she was a “beautiful, loving woman who had studied at university and travelled widely”.
Another relative said the family was “deeply shocked” by her death. “Michaela was very loved; that’s all we want to say right now,” the woman said.
Friends of the former Rosebank Catholic College student remembered her as a fun-loving woman with a passion for travel and cats, which she regularly posted about on social media.
Ms Dunn, who lived with friends in the city’s inner west, regularly went on holidays around the world while she completed her degree at the University of Notre Dame.
