Ms. Fisher’s boyfriend and landlord, Nasser Malak, described her as a “beautiful girl” who was like family to him.
“I can’t believe what happened, very, very sad,” he said.
“I’m sorry for the mother and son, too.”
Ms Malak said the couple’s children often played together and celebrated birthdays or had barbecues.
He said the young mother was a “very pretty girl, very good girl, very serious girl, straightforward.”
“I took care of her like a younger sister,” he added.
Ms. Fisher’s grandmother told the ABC that her granddaughter was a gifted artist who enjoyed designing tattoos.
