Grieving sister appeals for help
By FRAZER PEARCE
JEANIE Nichols will always remember her murdered sister Suzanne Standing as a happy, loving young lady who would never hurt anybody.
But, at a police media conference in Rockhampton yesterday, with eyes glistening, her grim focus was to catch her killer.
Ms Standing's body was found on Saturday morning with severe facial injuries in the backyard of her Etna Creek home.
It is a crime that has shocked the Rockhampton community and Ms Nichols, speaking on behalf of her distraught family, made an impassioned appeal for public help to solve the crime.
"I'm hoping someone can come forward with information to help everyone out,'' she said.
"Something like this (her murder) should never happen.
"She was a lovely, happy person who would not hurt anybody.
She was a happy-go-lucky person. She lived a joyful life.''
Ms Nichols last saw her younger sister alive a week ago.
"We had lunch on Wednesday.
"She was happy. She was always happy. "I just want to remember her the way she was. Happy.'' ? n PAGE 3: Continues.
