Memorial Of Domestic Violence Murder Victim Vandalised
A memorial dedicated to domestic violence murder victim Allison Baden-Clay has been vandalised, upsetting her family.
The plaque was forcibly removed from the sandstone memorial which stands at the site where her body was found in western Brisbane after she was murdered by her husband Gerard Baden-Clay in 2012.
"We were disappointed and upset about someone interfering with it. We think it's a bit disrespectful to damage a memorial," her father Geoff Dickie told The Courier-Mail.
Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk slammed the vandals responsible for the damage.
"The memorial is a constant reminder to everyone who knew Allison about how she touched their lives," she said in a statement.
"It is awful to think that someone would damage it in this way."
