A man fatally stabbed in the Melbourne on Saturday night has been identified as the cousin of an Australian soldier who was found dead after a buck’s party three weeks ago.
Marcus Rowley, 24, died in hospital after being stabbed on the street near Tottenham train station in Melbourne on Saturday night.
Police were called to the scene around 7pm and, though paramedics tried to revive the Epping father, his injuries were too severe.
Just weeks before, on July 16, Marcus' soldier cousin Private Natasha Rowley, who lived in Perth, was found dead in the bathroom of a Melbourne serviced apartment.
She was discovered in the shower by a group of men who'd been staying in the apartment celebrating a buck's party. The 20-year-old's death was not treated by authorities as suspicious.
