SURVIVOR FRONTS SHOOTING INQUEST
AT times tearful but with her courage shining through, Dr Amanda Jay appeared at the inquest into the police shooting of the man who violently attacked her two years ago.
The inquest into the death of Paul Lambert began on Monday at Coffs Harbour Local Court where details emerged of the deeply troubled man with a long history of violence towards women.
Dr Jay spoke of first meeting the “charming” Mr Lambert on dating app Tinder while working at Port Macquarie.
Wearing a white ribbon lapel badge she spoke of her life, two years on from the attack which saw her stabbed 11 times and doused in petrol, as a survivor of domestic violence.
“After everything that happened I felt like a murder victim and it was weird in a way that I didn’t die because there are a lot of women getting burnt and stabbed to death in Australia and I feel I owe it to all of those women who have been murdered to be their voice.”
