Brisbane mourns, apologises for fate of Sophie Collombet

IF ONLY Sophie Collembet had known how much her adopted city held her in its heart.

And how willingly many would have stepped in to protect her from harm's way.

Flowers, cards, photos and candles now adorn the South Brisbane rotunda where the 21-year-old French student lost her life in an all-too-abrupt manner 10 days ago.

While police and the public continued to scour for the person or persons responsible for the act, there were others who simply needed to mourn.

An informal shrine at riverside Kurilpa Park grows by the day with gifts of remembrance and strikingly heartfelt notes - some from those who never met the wide-eyed young lady a world away from home.
