    This is the second death involving Asian (Indian/Sri Lankan) women in Westmead.

    The first being Amesha Rajapakse last August.

    http://www.sundayobserver.lk/2014/08/31/sec03.asp

    Amesha's case was not a clear homicide or a clear suicide and has not been reported as one or the other, and while I got tired of arguing against suicide theories, I have not changed my mind about her death being very suspicious, IMO.

    Also from Westmead, November last year:

    Women are urged to take extra care walking alone in Westmead after a string of attacks.

    Police issued the warning after three attacks on women in the past week.

    Officers believe the attacks were committed by one man between November 5 and November 11 in and around the Alexandra Ave area.

    Detectives have set up Strike Force Emeus to investigate the attacks.

    They are searching for a man they believe can help them with their inquiries.

    He is described as being of Indian Sub-Continental appearance, 175-180cm tall with a thin, athletic build and short black hair.

    afaik, this remains unsolved

    ETA: CRIPES, from March 2012, more attacks in Westmead, by Indian looking guy:

    "She was walking while talking to Arun (her husband) on the phone when she said that a suspicious-looking man was following her," Mrs Kumar's brother-in-law, Thrijesh Jayachandra, told Indian publication The Hindu.

    "The next moment, he heard her scream for help and then plead with the man not to harm (her) and take all her belongings if he wanted. Seconds later, he heard her scream and say she was stabbed."

    How devastating for her husband, to hear her being attacked and die. My heart goes out to him. I hope he has some love and support.

    Prabha Arun Kumar’s husband heard her murder over the phone
    http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/new...-1227254133596

    "POLICE have released CCTV footage of Prabha Kumar walking from the train station moments before she was murdered in Parramatta Park on Saturday night.

    Detectives are hoping the chilling vision will jog the memory of a witness who may have seen Mrs Kumar as she walked home after work.

    “We’re releasing (the CCTV tapes) in an effort to jog people’s memories - someone who may have seen Prabha, somebody who may know Prahba - coming forward and providing us with the information that we need to work out why this has happened to her and who is responsible for it,” Homicide squad commander Detective Superintendent Michael Willing said."

    This is so weird, why on earth would someone just walk up to her and stab her?
    Neither the state nor the defense team are saints, and there is usually plenty of incompetence to go around on both sides of the courtroom.

    I hate when things like this happen especially close to home. The walkway between argyle st and Amos is a footpath going uphill. On the left is parramatta high school and on the right is a golf course.
    I also immediately thought of Amesha.

    I can't quite comprehend the motive behind this stabbing. Her bag was found next to her, so far police has not mentioned she was indecently assaulted, mentally ill people don't just follow you until you are in a dark, lonely stretch to attack you, they will attack you anywhere. And if it was a junkie he would have attacked her to take her money.

    So what's the intention behind this vicious crime?
