THE LATEST: Dept responds in wake of student murder charge
Students at Kepnock State High School have had guidance support made available to them in the wake of a death near the school for which a student has been charged.
It's been a week since the stabbing of a woman that shocked the community and police are continuing to gather evidence and piece together the circumstances surrounding her death.
Last Friday morning police were called to a Kepnock St house where they found 36-year-old Lisa Hund with multiple stabs wounds.
She was declared dead at the scene.
A teenage boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been charged with her murder.
A spokesperson for the Department of Education confirmed the department was aware that charges have been laid against a Kepnock State High School student.
"Guidance support is on offer for any in the school community who may require it," the spokesperson said.
"The department is unable to comment on matters before the courts".
The school went into temporary lockdown last Friday morning as a precautionary measure until the situation was deemed safe by police.
Police subsequently praised the school for it's quick actions.
Earlier this week detectives and uniformed officers stopped cars along the busy thoroughfare that leads to the nearby Kepnock State High School, asking commuters for any information or dashcam footage that might assist with investigations.
Meanwhile a fake fundraiser set up claiming to raise funds for Ms Hund's funeral service has since been shut down by host platform donorbox.org.
The bogus listing had been set up earlier this week in the name of high-profile domestic violence activist, award-winning journalist and Red Heart Campaign founder Sherele Moody, who blasted the sick scammers.
"Someone is cashing in on the grief of the family members and loved ones of Lisa Hund," Ms Moody said.
Police are particularly interested to hear from anyone that was in the vicinity of Kepnock Rd, near Kepnock High School last Friday morning between 7am-9am that may have dashcam footage from their car or saw anything unusual.
