“She loved her children, everyone’s children. She made a fuss over everyone.”

Inspector Desanges said WA police had no tolerance for domestic violence. 

“Violence of any nature, especially against women, children or other vulnerable victims is unacceptable,” he said.

“Family and domestic violence is a scourge in our community. This violence must stop; everyone has a right to feel safe, especially in their home,” he added.

“If you call WA Police, we will come. We will make the situation safe. Victim safety is our priority.”
