Founder of Youth Against Violence Ouwais Menzel said the western Sydney community is living in fear because “the killer is still out there”.

“There’s a big sense of fear within our community if this killer is going to be brought to justice, is he going to commit a further offence, or take another life,” he said.

Mr Menzel made an impassioned plea for the person responsible to come forward.

“Come forward before you are caught, we will not give up until you are caught, you are not trusted in our community, you are not welcome in our community,” he said.

Mr Menzel has also called for anyone who was at the show and witnessed the incident to come forward, despite any reservations about contacting police, as the family deserves closure.

“There is a lot of disconnect between young people and the police in terms of reporting this incident directly to the police,” Mr Menzel said.

“Any evidence is crucial in bringing the killer to justice.

“Those young people who witnessed or have footage of it should come forward to people they trust, if they don’t trust going to the police then speak to a responsible adult to come to terms with what happened and provide evidence.”
