Domestic violence incident in South Hedland, Western Australia: Woman rushed to hospital with stab wounds, partner takes his own life

A woman has been hospitalised with stab wounds, while her partner has taken his own life after a domestic violence incident in South Hedland, Western Australia.

A 41-year-old woman was rushed to hospital with multiple stab wounds from a home on Mitchie Crescent in South Hedland at around 7:45am on Wednesday.

Her partner, 45, was found dead near an abandoned church next door. It’s understood he took his own life.

Police have covered the location with a large tarpaulin screen to protect passers-by from a reportedly gruesome scene as detective investigate.

The woman is understood to have serious but not life-threatening injuries. 

Witnesses posted on Facebook that they had come across the horrific scene soon after it happened.

‘Their bodies were on the floor,’ they said. ‘It was outside on the grass in full view.’

Several others reported hearing loud noises in the area hours earlier. 

‘I wonder if that’s related to the loud bangs I heard between 3:00 to 5:00am,’ asked one.

Another added: ‘I heard it at 4.09am – I went outside and couldn’t see anything.’ 

The incident follows the death of two women within a fortnight in suspected domestic violence attacks in Western Australia.

Georgia Lyall was shot dead by her ex-partner Rebels bikie Luke Noormets at her South Guildford home before he returned to his own home in Innaloo, set it on fire and killed himself.

Just days later, Tiffany Woodley was allegedly beaten to death by her former partner Peter Damjanovic at her Bedford home two weeks ago.

WA Premier Roger Cook has now called a summit meeting for next week to tackle the rising number of DV cases in the state.
