Eight black children have been stabbed to death in Far North Queensland

Melanesians are notoriously aggressive towards one-another

Police in Cairns have closed a section of a street while homicide detectives and emergency services attend to the scene.

Officers said they had attended the address after they received reports a 34-year-old woman had serious injuries.

Police say the 34-year-old woman currently in hospital with suspected stab wounds is not in custody and have indicated she is not a suspect in the death of eight children at a Cairns property.

The 34-year-old’s cousin told AAP at the scene the children were all siblings.  The woman was their mother, she said.

She said another sibling, a 20-year-old man, arrived home to find his brothers and sisters dead inside the house.  He is now being comforted by other family members.  “I’m going to see him now, he needs comforting,” the woman told AAP.

She described the family and extended relatives as close-knit. “We’re a big family and most of us are from the (Torres) Strait,” she said.


UPDATE:  The house was welfare housing and drug users were regular there.  The mother was the perpetrator and she had just got religion.

I know. I was horrified. Then I saw the suburb, then I saw which street. Horror gives way to apathy surprisingly quickly sometimes.

Don't you just love how stories unfold exactly the way you expect sometimes?
