Who are the victims of the Bondi Junction stabbing attack?

A “beautiful”, “all round outstanding human”, the 25-year-old daughter of a prominent businessman and a Pakistani national who sought refuge in Australia are among the victims of a stabbing attack inside a busy Sydney shopping centre. 

Five of the six people confirmed killed by Queensland man Joel Cauchi inside Westfield Bondi Junction on Saturday afternoon were women.

All six victims have now been identified — here’s what we know about them.

Ashlee Good 

The first victim to be publicly named was 38-year-old mother Ashlee Good, who was attacked alongside her nine-month-old baby and died later in hospital on Saturday evening. 

Her family says the baby is now “doing well” after undergoing hours of emergency surgery. 

“Today we are reeling from the terrible loss of Ashlee, a beautiful mother, daughter, sister, partner, friend, all round outstanding human and so much more,” Ms Good’s family said in a statement on Sunday. 

“We appreciate the well-wishes and thoughts of members of the Australian public who have expressed an outpouring of love for Ashlee and our baby girl.”

The family paid tribute to NSW Police, Sydney Children’s Hospital staff and two men who “held and cared for our baby when Ashlee could not”. 

Ashlee’s father was Kerry Good, a player and former board member for AFL club North Melbourne. The club wore black armbands in honour of Ashlee in its match against Geelong on Sunday.

Dawn Singleton 

Dawn Singleton has also been confirmed to have died in the attack. 

She is the 25-year-old daughter of businessman John “Singo” Singleton. 

Ms Singleton’s employer, White Fox Boutique, described her “as someone special to us who felt like a family member”. 

“We are all truly devastated by this loss. Dawn was a sweet, kind-hearted person who had her whole life ahead of her. She was really amazing,” the business wrote on social media. 

Killcare Surf Lifesaving Club on the NSW Central Coast, which said four generations of the Singletons had been involved with it, also posted a message of support to social media late on Sunday morning.

Faraz Tahir 

Faraz Tahir, a 30-year-old Pakistani national who was working as a security guard, has also been identified as a victim. 

The Australian Pakistani National Association (APNA) named Mr Tahir as the sole male killed in a post on Facebook on Sunday afternoon. 

The APNA said Mr Tahir had moved from Brisbane for work. 

“Let us stand together in solidarity, offering support and prayers to those grieving and affected by this heartbreaking loss,” the group said in a post on social media.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Australia said Mr Tahir sought refuge in Australia after fleeing persecution in Pakistan a year ago.
