1. Couple who lost phone with photos of their dying baby were allegedly blackmailed.
An Uber Eats delivery cyclist allegedly blackmailed a couple who lost a mobile phone filled with photos of their dying baby girl.
After the couple lost the phone, their terminally ill 11-month-old, Amiyah Windross, died after fighting an undiagnosed neurological issue from birth.
Just days earlier, her parents Jay and Dee Windross, appealed for public help to track down a stolen phone containing irreplaceable photos of her.
Dee accidentally left the Samsung Galaxy S8 with a purple phone cover behind in a toilet cubicle while she washed her hands in a bathroom at Melbourne’s Chadstone Shopping Centre on Saturday afternoon.
When she realised and went back for the phone less than a minute later, it was gone, along with hundreds of photos of Amiyah who was in her last days.
On Sunday, Jay wrote that while he and his wife spent their final moments with Amiyah, he received a text message from someone claiming to have Dee’s phone.
