Tributes to ‘beautiful’ pregnant mum murdered in family bloodbath as ex-husband fights for life under police guard

TOUCHING tributes have poured in for "beautiful" pregnant mum Michelle Darragh, 32, who was murdered in a family bloodbath – as her ex-husband fights for life under police guard.

Michelle's brother said his sister was a "beautiful soul" who put everyone's needs before herself.



Speaking with local media, he said: "Our family has lost a beautiful daughter and sister. We are beside ourselves with emotion.

"She absolutely adored her boys and gave her life to them."

Another family member told the media outlet that she was a "great person" and that "our family will never be the same after this loss".

Michelle – a social worker – was remembered by the Australian Association of Social Workers as a "dedicated" colleague.

National president Vittorio Cintio said: "Our condolences go out to the family of Michelle during this deeply traumatic time."

Meanwhile, neighbour Trent Falahey told reporters that Michelle and her estranged husband were "a standard young couple with two kids living in suburbia".

"They were fantastic, they were a nice couple, two young boys,” he said.

"At 7pm at night, the sirens came and that’s when we realised something really bad has happened."

Michelle was pregnant with her third child when police found her murdered body at a home in Melbourne, Australia.

The 32-year-old died at her estranged partner's home in Bayswater North at around 7.30pm on Saturday.

The mum of two young boys and her former partner Ben Coman were discovered with life-threatening injuries by police.

Emergency services were unable to save the social worker mum and tragically she succumbed to her injuries at the Melbourne home.

Coman, 29, was taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in critical condition where he remained on Sunday under police guard.

Officers said the exact circumstances of the incident are being investigated by the homicide squad.

Police are not looking for anyone else in relation to the crime.

Michelle had been expecting her third child when her life was tragically cut short.

It was reported that Michelle and Coman had recently separated and that she had returned to the house to collect some of her belongings.

A police spokesperson said that Coman had yet to be questioned by police.
