Murder most foul in Charnwood

By johnboy - 28 July 2008 118

[First filed: July 26, 2008 @ 08:59]

The ABC reports that a woman was fatally stabbed to at the Charnwood shops at 8pm.

She died at the hospital shortly afterwards.

UPDATED: As noted in the comments the ABC now reports that the victim was a 43 yr old woman from Dunlop and there was a large argument outside the take-away leading to the violence. Another woman is being questioned and police are seeking witnesses.

Further update The Herald Sun informs us of murder charges laid against a 35 year old Charnwood woman.

Update made with a degree of nervousness: Automated monitoring has brought up a discussion of this from the nazi filth at Stormfront. I can’t understand their point without learning to read rascist-scum but maybe someone else can translate?

ANOTHER UPDATE: The AFP has finally made a brief statement.

UPDATE: Radio reports that bail has been refused. The ABC report is now online. And we have a name: Rebecca Anne Massey stands accused. Apparently she has a history of knife crime, well done your honours with previous lenient sentences, they’ve worked out well haven’t they?

What’s Your opinion?

I came to Canberra in the 1990s, so what do we mean by the 80s Charney? This could be interesting … colour please …

Canberra has public housing in almost every suburb, so the rough element is spread out.

and yes, my spelling and grammar in the above was appalling

I might say thats only to be expected out in Boganville.

Domestic, I’d guess, rather than random attack?

Can remember 2 homicides in Kingston and suspicious deaths in Griffith in reccent memory. Don’t think anywhere in Canberra is immune from boganity

That’s in pretty poor taste.

I’d like to think murders are still rare enough in Canberra that we haven’t become that desensitised yet.

From my crack dealer sources, the two women were fighting over which one would get to sleep with Todd Carney.
Todd said that whichever slapper could acquire the most greasiest of charcoal chickens would have the honour of riding the Carney-val *ba dom tish*.

This led ‘G-string 5 inches above tracky-pants with Tramp stamp of XXXX beer’ woman to wield her knifey and when ‘White Pants Muffin Top’ woman tried to slap her, her Muffin Top got in the way of Tramp-stamp’s knifey.

I’m right and you know it.

Charnie can be rough, but really, it’s changed a lot from th e old 80s Charny.

Charnie is slowly becoming gentrified so that is why we haven’t heard about so much of this recently. Not that the extreme poverty problems are solved, oh no, simply moved along. . .

The funny thing is, though, I haven’t remembered this happening in Charnwood for a long time…

ABC is now reporting a woman is being questioned. http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2008/07/26/2315356.htm

That is very worrying – my tween has friends in Charnwood and is often in the area around that time. Not on the night of the 25th of July, though (she hastens to add).

A brief mention in the Canberra Times says Police are ‘seeking a female offender’.

johnboy 10:04 am 26 Jul 08

Well that’s something we look forward to finding out.
