The woman killed in a knife attack in central Sydney on Tuesday has been named as 24-year-old Michaela Dunn.
Michaela Dunn was found dead inside an apartment after a 20-year-old man was detained by the public and then arrested for allegedly stabbing another woman in the street.
The former student was reported to have been working as a sex worker at the time of the attack.
Initial police inquiries suggested that a man had entered the apartment for “an appointment” at about 13:30 and was captured on CCTV leaving the building about 20 minutes later.
The man Mert Ney, was arrested shortly after 14:00 after a 41-year-old woman was stabbed in the street.
Homicide squad detectives are investigating both stabbings.
Her mother remembered her on Wednesday as a “beautiful, loving woman”.
Dunn was also remembered by Sydney’s Rosebank College, which she attended before studying at the University of Notre Dame.
“The college remembers Michaela as a highly successful and much valued student. She was seen as a mature, resilient young woman and a positive role model,” principal Tom Galea told The Sydney Morning Herald.
