This morning, a very brave Sylvia Jeffreys spoke about the loss of a dear friend who was murdered two years ago as a consequence of a violent relationship.
As the 28-year-old Today Show presenter discussed White Ribbon Day, she shared a very personal story about her close relationship to Rachelle Yeo and the issue of domestic violence.

“I knew Rachelle, I met her a couple of times through mutual friends in Brisbane and she was a beautiful, beautiful soul and a beautiful spirit,” Sylvia said.
Rachelle, 31, was murdered by her ex lover Paul Mulvihill at her home in North Curl Curl in July 2012. Mulvihill, 46, was sentenced to at least 22 years in jail earlier this year for the stabbing Rachelle to death.
