John Singleton’s daughter named among six people murdered at Bondi Junction Westfield on Saturday

John Singleton’s daughter named among six people murdered at Bondi Junction Westfield on Saturday

Dawn Singleton, 25 – who is the daughter of multi-millionaire advertising guru John Singleton – was due to marry her high school sweetheart, NSW Police Officer Ashley Wildey, in coming months.

Last week, she bought her wedding dress and started sending out ‘save the date’ invitations to her loved ones and friends ahead of the special day.

But her life was tragically cut short, along with five other shoppers, when she was stabbed at Bondi Junction Westfield by Joel Cauchi, 40, on Saturday afternoon.

In an impossibly cruel twist of fate, her fiance Mr Wildey had just finished a shift when he was scrambled to the shopping centre to assist colleagues with the unfolding situation.

‘He had arrived at Westfield when officers realised his fiancée was one of the victims,’ a source told The Daily Telegraph.

Mr Wildey was then allowed to leave the scene to be comforted by family and friends, as is procedure.

 

Affectionately known as Dawnie, the 25-year-old is one of Singleton’s three daughters from his marriage to Julie Martin. He has eight children in total.

The tragic new details come as Australian fashion powerhouse White Fox Boutique paid tribute to Ms Singleton, who worked as the company’s e-commerce assistant.

‘Dawn was a sweet, kind-hearted person who had her whole life ahead of her,’ the company wrote on Instagram.

‘She was really amazing. We are all truly devastated by this loss.

‘We send our condolences to her partner, the Singleton family and her friends. She will always be remembered as part of the White Fox family.’

Ms Singleton was the second victim of the horrifying attack to be identified after it was revealed osteopath and first-time mother Ashlee Good, 38, had passed away in hospital on Saturday night.

Ms Good’s nine-month-old daughter was also injured in the attack and is in a serious but stable condition after undergoing emergency surgery overnight.

Double Bay architect and mother-of-two Jade Young was identified as a third victim of the attack on Sunday.

Police were called to the shopping precinct at 3.20pm as Cauchi, brandishing a large hunting knife, chased after men, women and children.

Footage posted online shows terrified shoppers running outside to escape or taking shelter in shops as a siren blasted through the centre, urging shoppers to evacuate.
