The chilling final hours of a woman who took her own life after discovering her boyfriend was killed by a pizza delivery driver have been revealed.
Alice Robinson was in her Stanley Street unit in Perth on December 22 when her boyfriend Jason Francis called to tell her he would be home in a ‘couple of minutes’.
The 29-year-old rugby player had just spent the day drinking with friends and was lying on the road outside their block of units when he was hit by a teenage Domino’s Pizza delivery driver.
Just after the sound of sirens flooded the quiet street Ms Robinson walked out of her unit to see what was going on.
The young woman collapsed in grief when police told her that her long-time boyfriend was on his way to Perth Royal Hospital, according to Perth Now.
Minutes later, Ms Robinson was on her way to hospital with her neighbour Colette following closely behind to give comfort.
When Colette got there Alice was nowhere to be seen, so she searched the car park and drove around in hopes of finding her.
‘We knew she would have been in a terrible state. We just could not find her. I feel so terrible for both their families over there. I’m so sorry we couldn’t find her,’ Colette said.
Less than 24-hours later, Ms Robinson was found dead in ‘non-suspicious circumstances’ in her car in a nearby suburb.
The young couple, originally from Shropshire in England, were together eight years and had moved to Perth less than a year ago after travelling the world together.
Colette met them within days of moving into their unit, and described them as being a ‘loving, bubbly, happy couple’.
They only had each other in Australia, friends say, with both of their families living overseas.
Ms Robinson showed her passion through her art, with an eye for exquisite detail and extraordinary talent portrayed in her graphite drawings.
Ms Robinson’s devastated mother, Dawn, took to social media to pay tribute to her daughter.
