    Thanks Marly!

    The young mother whose body was found in a river on the Queensland/NSW border was killed in the early hours of Sunday morning, police believe.

    POLICE believe the young mother whose partially clothed body was found on the banks of a river southwest of Brisbane on Sunday was attacked.

    Regional crime coordinator for southern region Detective Superintendent Dave Isherwood told media that Alexis Jeffery was last seen alone in a park, walking towards the pathway to the Goondiwindi cultural centre between 3am and 3.30am Sunday.

    As someone who has read a lot of true crime - as would have every WSer, I'm sure - it COMPLETELY freaks me out when I read a sentence like the one I've bolded below:

    That's precisely the kind of opportunity a nutter is waiting for - a woman walking alone late at night.

    Poor Alexis. I so hope they find who did this

    I guess maybe Alexis thought she was safe:

    Goondiwindi Mayor Graeme Scheu.........says Ms Jeffery's death is a terrible tragedy.

    "It's extremely sad when these types of things happen," he said.

    "The town has a very good record and is a good, safe town generally.

    THREE young boys have been left without a mother after her body was discovered on the banks of the Macintyre River in Goondiwindi on Sunday morning.

    Alexis Jeffery’s former partner and father of her children, Jade Crotty, was yesterday grappling with the loss of the “outgoing” woman and said her boys, aged one to four, were unaware of their mother’s death.

    “They don’t know. I didn’t want them to know, just yet,” he said.

    Isis, could you please share your thoughts with us in the last sentence?
    It makes me sad to think that their Mum is gone but they have no idea. I mean, I'm glad they're not suffering, but they're just delaying the inevitable. Is that wise? Not that I want to judge, they're doing the best they can in trying times.

    Hi Humdinger

    Whilst I understand why the father hasn't told them - and he's done it because he genuinely believes he is protecting them for as long as possible from pain I think - it's not something I personally would recommend.

    I don't advocate lying to children or concealing major family issues like a death. Firstly, all children are highly intuitive and being so young, they would all be so strongly connected emotionally to their mother. I think they'd feel that something was up, even if it wasn't spoken.

    And the other issue is - if they're not told she's passed over, what have they been told? What is their understanding of where their mum is? Because you don't want them to think that mum's just taken off and not returned. Children always blame themselves and that could easily be turned into "I was naughty so mum's left me" or "I'm not important to mum".

    If it were my client, I'd strongly encourage him to speak to the children as soon as possible. They're only little and it should be done in an appropriate way for the family, eg. Mum's gone up to be with the angels now but she's always looking after you, but I think they definitely need to know.

    Otherwise they'll also be confused by all the grief surrounding them - children are particularly perceptive of the emotional climate in a family.

    MOO

    Thanks so much for your input, I really appreciate it! I was curious as it didn't feel right to me, but I wasn't sure if my thoughts were out of kilter.

    I hope the poor little darlins are being well supported and feel loved - which I'm sure they do!

    Goondiwindi mum Alexis Jeffery, 24

    There were police markings on the grass today, indicating blood stains at the top of the 20m-high bank.

    Det Supt Isherwood said there was “no significant trauma” visible at the spot.

    Police believe Ms Jeffery may have been walking either alone or with a group of people from the Goondiwindi CBD towards the Cultural Centre on Russell and Albert streets between 3.30am-5am on Sunday, March 16.
