Dawn’s father, multi-millionaire businessman John Singleton, was told of the tragedy by close friend Hadley after he contacted him on Saturday night, to confirm if his daughter was among those injured.

“I rang him, and he said, ‘I think my Dawnie is one of those who lost their lives and I can’t confirm it. Can you do something?’” Hadley said on 3AW radio.

The radio host says he then called NSW Police Commissioner Karen Webb, desperately searching for an update.

“I rang the police commissioner and asked her if she had any names, and she said only one and confirmed it was Dawn,” Hadley said.

“And I had the job of ringing John back and unofficially confirming that his dear darling daughter had been stabbed to death by this lunatic.”
