The Australian - - FRONT PAGE - JES­SICA CORTIS ELIAS VISONTAY

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.
