Those Killed in Australian Terror Attack Identified

I was watching the live feed when Ms. Dawson or who I believe was Ms. Dawson was carried from the Cafe to the Coffee shop. Obviously upset. It appears she died.

Police have named the two victims in the cafe siege as barrister Katrina Dawson, 38, and 34-year-old Tori Johnson, who managed the Lindt cafe. Both are from Sydney.

Johnson had worked at the Lindt cafe for more than two years, and had previously worked in other cafes in Sydney and in the US, according to a report in the SMH. He had worked at the Martin Place cafe since 2012.

His LinkedIn profile shows he moved back to Australia in 2004 after a three-year stint overseas, working at hotels in the US and the Maldives.

Katrina Dawson, a 38-year-old mother of three, was with fellow barrister Julie Taylor buying a coffee in the Lindt cafe when the gunman attacked.

Taylor and Dawson practised in the Eight Selborne chambers not far from the Lindt cafe.

Australia has stood with us through all of this, as you stood with us we will stand with you. We will also mourn with you.

May they rest in peace and may the Lord keep them.

Update: I'm getting comments that Ms. Dawson may have been misidentified, but checking the outlets the names have not changed. We will run a correction if we can determine the above is incorrect.
