An older couple whose teenage daughter was murdered by a serial killer on the way home from school threatened to lose the parental home in which she grew up.
A fundraising campaign is underway to save Brian and Carmel Russell's home in Frankston, Melbourne.
The house contains the latest memories of their daughter Natalie, who was 17 years old when in July 1993 she became the third and final murder victim of Paul Denyer.
Denyer, who now identifies as a transgender woman named Paula since her detention, was sentenced to three sentences with a non-parole period of 30 years.

Mr. and Mrs. Russell, their daughter & # 39; fighting against & # 39; when Denyer violated her on her way home from school, and the DNA left on the spot, agents helped track him down.
Mrs. Russell, 75, said while the pain never goes away, you learn to live with it.
In a GoFundMe page dedicated to raising money for the sick couple, family describing how & # 39; this trip has taken its toll on both & # 39 ;.
They are desperately seeking their connection to the community and the parental home – a place where all of Natalie's possessions are lovingly preserved and a garden where a Christmas tree has been planted for her.
Russell, 77, fights cancer and lost his family business as a result of his recovery.
The couple was about to lose their house someday when a relative came in and bought the property so that Mr. and Mrs. Russell could stay there.

Now, that family member & # 39; is facing serious health problems & # 39; and is forced to sell the house.
& # 39; This terrible turn around will see Brian and Carmel – in the & # 39; 70 and not in good health – leaving their home for many years and facing huge waiting lists for social housing.
& # 39; Because they are retired, they don't know how to put together a loan and increase rental payments, & # 39; said their appeal.
They hoped to reach $ 10,000 in the campaign to cover rental costs, and have since increased more than double.
With the money, they hope that they can find another house nearby to rent, or that the new owners of their house when it sells will enable them to stay as tenants.
