Young girl allegedly murdered by her own father to be farewelled today

A young girl who was allegedly murdered by her own father will be farewelled in Brisbane today.

Six-year-old Sidney Playford was found dead in her Kedron home on Monday last week.

Her mother, 36, made the gruesome discovery and phoned paramedics just before 8.00am after finding her daughters lifeless body in her bed.


The young girls father, 52-year-old Stephen Phillip Playford, was later arrested and charged with her murder as well as the attempted murder of her eight-year-old sister.

The young girl is expected to be farewelled at a private funeral at Clayfield.
