A stabbing at Gordonvale, south of Cairns has seen two women killed and a man and a woman being injured.

Arriving at Wiltshire Drive yesterday afternoon, police found a man sitting in the street in a dazed condition with minor injuries.  Speaking with ABC news, Inspector Monique Ralf, the man willingly went into police custody.

“When he was speaking to [police] he seemed quite dazed,” Inspector Ralf said. “The man who is assisting with our inquiries, he did have a few superficial inquiries, nothing of any significance though.  He went with the police quite willingly.”

Police attending the scene, also discovered a 17-year-old girl with a minor cut to her face and another man with chest injuries.  Three crimes scenes were immediately established in the street.

It is believed all the individuals involved are all known to each other.

Neighbours said they heard a domestic disturbance at 3:30pm and a number of triple-0 calls were made.

Police are speaking with several people and family members, some who Inspector Ralf said witnessed the stabbings.

“We have three crime scenes which are processing,” Inspector Ralf said.  “Forensic testing will be taking place throughout the evening, and I would suggest into the early morning.”

The man who is assisting police is undergoing forensic and mental health testing.

A neighbour said it was a quiet street, where kids usually played.

“They seem very nice, very nice people,” a neighbour who did not give her name said told ABC news.  “It is a real shock, pretty scary.”

  • How absolutely devastating.
    Some much violence occurring, it almost seems that every day there is a new reported violent death. I’m sure there will be much more to come out of this story.
    Maybe it is time for judges to start enforcing stricter penalties as it seems the message is not getting through.


  • Another lot of tragic incidents. I wonder if any of them were known to each other. Mistaken Indentity? I don’t blame the neighbour not giving her name when so many could have overheard. If they know where she lives they can always visit her later…and maybe use an unmarked car. maybe she has been threatened. She can request Police Media to have any details that could be related to her withheld from any media sources.


  • How devastating. There is so much tradegy going on.


  • Lke it
