New witnesses in long-running kambo inquest

Proceedings reopened in Byron Bay Courthouse yesterday in what is expected to be the final stage of the long-running coronial inquest into the death of Jarrad Antonovich.

NSW Police say a man has died, and two others have been injured, following a stabbing in Lismore overnight.

At about 11.10pm yesterday (Friday, January 14), emergency services were called to a home on McKenzie Street following a concern for welfare.

Police say upon arrival, officers found three people – two men, one aged 24 and one aged 60, and a woman aged in her 30s – suffering stab wounds.

Despite the efforts of emergency services, the 24-year-old man died at the scene.

The older man and woman were treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics at the scene before being taken to Lismore Base Hospital for treatment.

The older man was in a stable condition with a laceration to his neck.

The woman was in a stable condition with a laceration to her arm.

All three people are known to each other.

Officers attached to Richmond Police District established a crime scene and have commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Inquiries continue and no further information is available at this time.

  1. I lived in Lismore for 6 months. I couldn’t wait to escape. In my street back then, I was woken up about once a week by street people fighting with knives. I could see them lunge at each other. What a cesspool of unhappiness, anger, violence and brutality. Horrible place. For mine, people live in Lismore because they have no choice. Luckily, I did.

  2. For the entirety of my 13 school years (through the 1950s–’60s) I lived in the lower end of McKenzie St (the flooding block). Back then it was a quiet and respectable address.

    Once the 3-storey flats known as McKenzie Court were built, the place started its downward slide. When the first block of the street was overbuilt by the shopping square, the few remaining ‘respectable’ occupants moved out and the street became a slum.

    Depressing, but hey, demographics change. Some call that progress (not I).
