The announcement coincided with an outpouring of emotion on the social networking site Facebook from friends convinced the media had presented a distorted image of Worrall to the world. Worrall was jailed two months ago for stabbing her 18-year-old sister, Susan, at the family home two years ago. She was found dead in her cell in Dillwynia medium security women’s prison on August 1. A flood of Facebook messages have streamed onto Worrall’s wall, paying tribute to her short life. “RIP Kathleen. If only the media knew the side I got to know,” read one. “ Thinking of your family.” Other friends listed some fond memories they shared with her. “Kathleen – I will always remember you the school captain of our primary school,” said one. “The gentle, kind hearted, friendly girl that was adored by her sister, teachers and peers. No more tears, no more pain – we will miss you.” Another wrote: “Kathleen, I will always remember the first time I met you in Year 6 and you were the happy girl who lit up the playground with a smile. RIP.” Prison authorities believe Worrall died from natural causes and her body was found at around 8am on August 1. Worrall was due for release from prison at the beginning of 2013. Both girls previously attended Methodist Ladies College (MLC) Burwood and the school has provided their full support to the Worrall family. MLC is offering counselling to former students through Stephanie Stojanovic and Simone Karras, school captains during Kathleen’s and Susan’s years at the school. A private vigil was held at the school chapel in the days following the news of Worrall’s death. Past and present MLC students are welcome to attend the funeral. For more information about the ser vice, please contact MLC on 9747 1266 or the Australian Catholic University on 9701 4000. friendly bikie gang comes home fifty bikers from the nsW chapter of harley owners’ group (hogs) returned to their home turf on the corner of Parramatta and concord roads on July 25.
