“The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.” - Marcus Tullius Cicero 

Zachary Bryant (above left with sister Zara), a baby boy has become the first victim of Bourke Street mall car rampage to be laid to rest, as two others continue to fight for life in hospital. Zachary was buried on Tuesday at a private funeral. He was three months and 14 days when he died after being hit by a car aimed through the mall on Friday. A private funeral for Thalia Hakin, 10, will be held on Wednesday. Matthew Si, 33, Sydneysider Jess Mudie, 22, and an unnamed Japanese national, 25, also died in the attack.

Nineteen people were still in hospital on Tuesday after a man drove into the lunchtime crowd, killing five people and injuring more than 30. Two victims are still critical, including new mother Nethra Krishnamurthy. Zara Bryant, Zachary’s older sister is in a stable condition.

Perpetrator Dimitrious Gargasoulas (above right) is excused from court by police, claiming that he is feeling ‘unwell’. He is charged for 5 counts of murder on the day. He has been remanded in custody and ordered to face court via video link in August.
