Life Uncut / The night my sister was killed. Talking domestic violence with Bianca Unwin

Listen on

Episode notes

Lifers, today we have one of the toughest but most moving interviews that we have ever aired. Meet Bianca, the sister of a beautiful woman named Katie who was murdered by her partner 3 years ago. This type of harrowing story seems to be all too common in Australia at the moment, and we feel as though the only way to change the domestic violence landscape is to speak about it. 

What started as “the happiest” Katie’s family had ever seen her, led to what they described as ‘childish jealousy’ and eventually her brutal murder. In this episode we learn about the warning signs that Katie’s partner displayed of troubling behaviour, coercive control and stalking. Bianca also speaks about how domestic violence has affected her entire family. In this ep is some great information about how to actively help someone experiencing family violence and organisations that can help.
