The beauty blogger who was allegedly killed by an angry mob outside a Melbourne bar was “a little girl in a dress”, a court heard.
The young girl, known as Alyssa, was stabbed in the neck outside a bar in South Yarra in March, and was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she died from her injuries.
Her family was not allowed to meet her body until her parents were told her death.
Her body was found on a beach, with blood stains on her clothing.
Her father, Andrew, told the court his daughter was “beautiful and she was beautiful, but there was something missing”, with “no skin”.
His daughter, who has been identified only as A.B., was the “most beautiful girl I’ve ever known” and “a very talented person”.
“I’ve never been happier,” he said.
“She had a beautiful soul.”‘
No skin’ in the family: Mr B says Alyssas life was ‘full of miracles’ article Alysss father, who was not in court on Thursday, told of how his daughter’s life “was full of miracles”.
“We just have to hope that they’ll all be true,” he told the ABC.
Mr B said Alyss’s family was “disgusted” by her death and did not want to speak to media.
But his wife, Michelle, said her daughter was a “little girl in an art class dress”.
“It’s all because she was the beautiful, sweet, kind-hearted little girl who didn’t have any skin,” Ms B said.’
A lot of love’ from her parents ‘for their daughter’: Judge Michael Johnson told the inquest the family had “done nothing wrong”.
“Their love was not to be sought,” he added.
“They just loved her so much.”
Mr Johnson said his “heart goes out to them” but said he had no reason to doubt his daughters “heart”.
“They’re not criminals,” he asked.
“There’s no need to speculate on what happened to their daughter.
They just lost a very beautiful, special person.”
