– Police are investigating whether a Pakenham mother who was stabbed to death in her home was murdered by someone who had an “infatuation”with her.
Kylie Blackwood, 42, was found dead by her twin daughters when they returned home from school on August 1st.
Detective Inspector John Potter said several people of interest had been interviewed and, while police were still investigating whether Ms Blackwood was murdered when a burglary went wrong, she may have been killed by someone she knew.
He said there had been more than 350 calls to Crime Stoppers about the murder.
“We’ve had quite a spike in calls…since our last appeal and those calls nominate several suspects,” he said.
“At this point in time we haven’t established a motive…So we don’t know if it was a burglary gone wrong or if the person was somehow known to Kylie, or was somehow infatuated with her.”
