It is with much sadness we report the death of the 36th woman to male violence in Australia this year.
A 34 year old Maningrida woman was found unconscious on the Nightcliff foreshore in Darwin on 28th July 2016.
Despite receiving first aid and medical attention on the scene, the victim died in the Royal Darwin Hospital soon after.
A 37 year old man who had been part of a larger group with the victim has been arrested and charged in connection with her death.
Our hearts go out to the victim’s family & friends.
