Southport murder brings further tragedy

The fiancee of a Southport man who was allegedly bashed to death last month has reportedly taken her own life. 

According to the Bulletin, Emma Rowlatt’s death was revealed to mourners at Kane Barry’s funeral yesterday.

It comes just days after Mr Barry’s family made the decision to turn off his life support machines.


It’s three weeks since the 27-year-old father of one was involved in a violent argument that turned deadly outside his townhouse on Margaret Street.

It’s been alleged his head was repeatedly smashed into concrete by neighbour Nathan Sanchez during the dispute.

Mr Sanchez has since been charged with the murder and will appear in Southport Magistrates Court on December 11.
