MUM’S ANGUISH – Monday August 5 2013

– The mother of slain Pakenham woman Kylie Blackwood has paid tribute to her daughter, who was found dead in her home four days ago.
Still reeling from shock, Mrs Blackwood’s mother, Edie Whitta, thanked the community for its support.
She also urged anyone with information about her daughter’s death to come forward and help police find the killer.
Well-wishers yesterday left floral tributes outside the Mccaffery Rise home she shared with her husband Peter, the owner of Harcourts Pakenham.
The 42-year-old was found on her lounge on Thursday afternoon by her 11-year-old twins. The couple also have a 13-year-old son.
Neighbours have told how the terrified girls ran for help, but were too late to save her.
Mrs Whitta said her family appreciated the generosity and kindness of the community as they grieved for Mrs Blackwood, who worked at a nearby clothing store.
She said she hoped someone had information that could assist detectives investigating the death.
“We do hope that they find this person,” Mrs Whitta said. “If anyone knows anything, please come forward and give that information to police.”
Mrs Whitta said her family and Peter’s relatives had rallied together as they tried to come to terms with the tragedy.
Shocked friends and neighbours have paid tribute to Mrs Blackwood, described as well-liked and respected.

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
