A MELBOURNE woman became the sixth person to be killed in the Bourke St massacre when she died in hospital on Monday night.
Police confirmed a 33-year-old Blackburn South woman died just before 7.30pm.
The devastating news comes more than a week after the tragedy unfolded in Melbourne’s packed city centre, and will trigger another wave of grieving for the victims of the rampage.
Among those killed when a car ploughed through Bourke St on January 20 were Matthew Si, 33, Jess Mudie 22, 10-year-old Thalia Hakin, three-month-old Zachary Bryant and a 25-year-old Japanese man who was understood to have been in Australia for about a year and studying in Melbourne.
