On Boxing Day, about 11.30 p.m., two intruders are said to have disturbed a couple in their 40s inside their home in North Lakes, in the Moreton Bay area, according to superintendent John Hallam. He claimed that yapping dogs had awakened the couple. “They were defending their house,” Hallam said. “The weapon and how the injury was suffered is still subject to investigation,” he added. The two suspected invaders, according to Hallam, left the scene but were caught by the police dog squad at a nearby house. There are currently no known connections between the detainees and the victims, according to Hallam.
He said the family was “traumatised and shattered”. “They’ve lost their mother and their wife,” he said. “The whole community is mourning as well.” Queensland’s youth justice minister, Leanne Linard, said it was a “absolute tragedy”. “This is an incredibly sad day and we need to acknowledge there is a grieving family and our thoughts are with them,” she said. According to Hallam, two further boys have been detained and are cooperating law enforcement. Police reported that residents of North Lakes had started a fundraising effort for the family.
The fundraiser stated that Emma is survived by her husband Lee and two daughters, who are now dealing with the unbearable loss of their cherished mother and wife. For the first time in 11 years, the family, who are originally from England, spent Christmas Day on the beach, according to a social media post made by Lee Lovell just hours earlier. The house has been labeled a crime scene. Anyone with information, dash cam footage, or CCTV footage is requested to contact police, according to investigators.
