Sunrise host Natalie Barr wins fans after a tearful interview with the murdered mother’s best friend

Sunrise host Natalie Barr has received an outpouring of support from all over Australia after the emotional presenter dropped out live at Sunrise.

She had listened to close friends of Brisbane’s murdered mother, Hannah Clarke, who told heart-rending stories about her life on Monday morning.

Mrs. Clarke, 31, was killed alongside her three children by her estranged husband, Rowan Baxter, 42, who set fire to her car at school.

Myself, a mother of two, Barr, 51, began to take off when the women begged the Australian public not to forget Clarke and her story.

Another added: “She is sincere in her responses – it shows that she is incredibly empathetic and real.”

“Yes Nat, we are all with you and respect you for breaking off,” a woman added.

“It is so terrible to happen to Hannah and her children, very, very sad.”

It was not the first time that the host was overcome by emotions during a live broadcast.

In December 2014 during the siege of Lindt Cafe in the CBD of Sydney, she cried in the air as she revealed her personal relationship with victim Katrina Dawson.

News had just reached the star that Mrs. Dawson, a 38-year-old lawyer, had died during the attack – who also killed the cafe’s manager, Tori Johnson.

“I just found out Katrina Dawson was the sister of a prominent lawyer, Sandy Dawson, who did some work for Channel Seven,” Barr said, looking at her phone and shed tears as she revealed the connection.

Clearly upset, she added: “Sandy Dawson, whom I know and I have friends who know. A mother of three children. I only know this this morning.

‘If you put faces to the people who died at night, it is just heartbreaking. “

A visibly shocked Barr was then given the time to compose himself before bravely continuing the broadcast from a street near Martin Place, the scene of the siege.

Looking back on the ill-fated day, Barr later admitted that she was “ashamed” of becoming so emotional.

“I didn’t want to cry, I wasn’t going to cry, I was ashamed that I was crying that day,” she told Daily telegram on the first anniversary of the attack.

“Looking back, it was the moment when the true horror of all this really struck me.”

“I didn’t know Katrina Dawson. When I found out she was a mother of three small children, an adored woman, a sister, a daughter. It was here, meters away, and it was someone’s life. “

IS-sympathizing terrorist Man Haron Monis detained 18 staff members and customers for 16 hours before the siege ended in a hail bundle.

On Sunrise on Monday, Mrs. Clarke’s close friends appeared on the show to raise awareness about domestic violence and pay homage to their “hilarious friend” and “incredible mother.”

“The message is that we have to change something, we cannot make their faces fade. Not this time, no other family, no other drama, “the women said together.

Barr promised that nobody would forget, because she thanked the women for speaking.

“Thank you so much for talking to us, this has touched the nation. Our hearts go out to the whole family, “Barr said with tears.

Barr also choked while she struggled to respect Mrs. Clarke’s parents, Suzanne and Lloyd, and said no one could understand their grief.

“What do you say, it’s so sad … It’s terrible,” she later told her fellow host David Koch.

Nikki Brooks, Mrs. Clarke’s best friend of 17, said her favorite memory of the three-year-old mother was the day she chose to leave her abusive husband.

“We came back to my house and the children played. When they went to sleep, we got drunk with margaritas and started a new start.

Mrs. Brooks said “by the time they are insulting men, we are already dancing with the devil and it is too late.”

She and Mrs. Clarke’s other close friend Lou Farmer planned a moving vigil on Sunday, where more than 1,000 mourners appeared to pay tribute to the family.

One of her friends gave an emotional speech and said Mrs. Clarke “loved her very much and laughed every day.”

Mrs. Farmer said she was “not surprised at all” by the turnout.

“What happened was absolutely terrible. Although it was raining and the weather was not great, it reflects the true impact this has had on all of us.

“She was just the most wonderful mother,” she said.

‘What you saw from photos was exactly how it was. She lived for her children, she was hilarious. She did everything for those children and they absolutely loved her. “

The vigil was held at Whites Hill State College at Camp Hill – just a few blocks away from the murder scene.

Dressed in pink – Mrs. Clarke’s favorite color – her father Lloyd Clarke and brother Nat thanked the crowd for their support.

“We would have felt lost without all your support,” the distraught father said.

“I don’t know how we can pay back that kindness.”

He described the last week as the “most difficult of their lives.”

“We may not all know you, but you embraced our family when our entire world collapsed, and we are genuinely grateful for that,” he said.

“While I’m experiencing this really difficult time, my family and I are forever grateful to our neighbors and those who were first on the scene and desperately trying to help Hannah and the children.

‘You have done selflessly and without hesitation what you could do to save them. I don’t know how we can pay back such kindness, except to say that we will be eternally grateful. You have restored the belief that there are many good and decent people in the world. “

BRISBANEIC KILLER-KILLER: HOW COWARDL RAMPAGE PERFORMED

JANUARY, 2020

Queensland Police officers are summoned for an incident involving family violence involving the couple.

WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 19 – EARLY MORNING:

Rowan Charles Baxter, 42, is seen filling a jerry can with fuel at a local gas station.

8:20 am:

Baxter dives into the white Kia Sportage of his estranged wife Hannah Clarke as she prepared to drop off the school in Raven Street, Camp Hill, a rich suburb of Brisbane.

He extinguishes Mrs. Clarke, 31, and their three children – Aaliyah, six, Laianah, four, and Trey, three – in gas and turns on the car.

Neighbors hear an explosion that sounded like a ‘gas bottle’ explosion. At least four explosions followed.

Baxter takes a knife from the SUV and stabs himself in the chest.

He tries to prevent neighbors from saving his wife and children before he dies on the street.

Mrs. Clarke escapes the burning car and shouts, “He poured gas on me.”

Startled witnesses see her skin peel off her body.

A heroic neighbor washes her down in an attempt to save her life and suffers from burns herself.

She is being brought to Royal Brisbane and the Women’s Hospital in a critical condition.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT:

Mrs. Clarke dies in the hospital because of the terrible burns she sustained during the suicide of the four-fold murder.
