If you’ve ever been young and vulnerable to the grooming of an older man, our hearts go out to you.
If you’ve ever felt threatened by a partner, fearful for your own safety, our hearts go out to you.
If you’ve ever had to sit, weary eyes ticking back and forth between phones and computers, waiting in agony for any kind of notice telling you everything’s okay, that your loved one has been found.
Deanna, Peter and Nathan; our hearts go out to you. Because you never received that message. Instead, you were thrown into a violent storm of media attention and public speculation surrounding your own flesh and blood. Today, on the 30th June 2018, the rumours can finally be put to rest, as we have learned that Larissa Beilby was indeed the subject of a cruel and violent murder.
We won’t be discussing the poor excuse of a human that decided 16 year old Larissa’s fate was in his own hands. Instead we choose to put all our united strength and love into her memory and family; her father, Peter, brother Nathan, and of course Deanna who has always been a valued member of our women’s support group. Talking to Deanna, she told me she considers TLR to be her ‘online family.’ Knowing this, it becomes our duty and number one priority right now to support this woman and what her family has been through. Please help us raise the funds necessary to put beautiful Larissa to rest in a safe and loving space, the one she deserves.

Edit* (As per Gofundme’s request)
My name is Katie King and I am the author of this fundraiser, and the co-founder of TLR along with Hannah Byrne. We have organised this campaign on behalf of the Beilby family with their full permission and have been in contact with Deanna and her father Peter the entire time. The family has only recently been notified of the overwhelming amount of support from victims of crime they are eligible for, under the government’s scheme. They have requested that the Gofundme donations are instead forwarded to a charity of their choice, to help children in need. Thank you for your time and understandings.
Funds will be deposited directly into Deanna Beilby’s bank account. The family will then designate donations to the following charity organisations;
Daniel Morcombe Foundation
Life Changing Experience Foundation
Alannah and Madeline
Queensland Victim Support
