On October the 22nd Australia, tragedy struck Northern Cairns as we lost a fellow music lover, Toyah Cordingley, to the hands of a murderer.
Toyah was simply taking her dog for a walk along the beach
when her life was tragically taken. Australia is at a standstill while a family grieves for the loss of their loved one, who’s life was taken too soon.
Toyah's favourite song was “Your Guardian Angel” by the band The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. It was her go-to song and her ringtone for a long time and now relating to this song more than ever, her family reached out to the band.
Lead singer, Ronnie Winter, will be dedicating this song in loving memory of Toyah at their first show in Brisbane on the 29th at the beginning of their Australian tour. Spreading awareness about this tragic incident will hopefully bring us closer to the culprit and bring justice for Toyah.
Ronnie has also come up with a new lyric video available on Youtube, with the story pinned below the video, “This lyric video will stand as a living memorial for those who have lost along the way” says Ronnie.
Music is a way of connection and brings us all closer. Our thoughts and love go out to the family having to suffer with this tragedy, we do hope you find closure soon.
Rest in peace Toyah Cordingley.
