Relatives of a Queensland woman who admitted murdering her grandfather say they’ll forever question whether they missed warning signs that could have prevented the horrific killing.
Brittney Dwyer, 20, last year drove to Adelaide with the intention of robbing pensioner Robert Whitwell of $114,000 in cash he kept at his home.
However, Dwyer ended up stabbing the 81-year-old to death and both she and friend Bernadette Burns, 22, have pleaded guilty to his murder.
Dwyer’s mother, Tonya, describes her daughter as strong-willed, adventurous and a “tomboy” growing up, but now questions whether she should have picked up on changes.
