Dawn Singleton was engaged to marry a NSW police officer later this year, The Daily Telegraph reports. The 25-year-old daughter of millionaire businessman John Singleton was shopping for makeup for her wedding when killer Cauchi began attacking shoppers with a large knife.

Security guard and former refugee Faraz Ahmed Tahir is the lone male victim to have been killed. He was at work when he was attacked and succumbed to his injuries.

Ashlee Good and her nine-month-old daughter Harriet were both stabbed during the attack. Ms Good died of her injuries, but not before she handed her baby to two men to try and save the infant. The nine-month-old is recovering after surgery, the family said on Sunday.

Architect Jade Young, 47, a mother-of-two and beloved member of the Bronte Surf Life Saving Club, and Pikria Darchia, 55 were also murdered in the rampage.
