Lisa and Jessica Origliasso of The Veronicas are reacting to the stabbing death of 12-year-old Elliott Fletcher of St Patrick’s College at Shorncliffe in her hometown of Brisbane, Australia. The 13-year-old charged for the murder was remanded in custody after an appearance in the Brisbane Children’s Court. Lisa told her Twitter followers (@Lisa_Veronica)
Is completely heart broken by the news of Elliot Fletchers passing. Although I didn’t know him, my heart is crying out for him..
and my thoughts are with his family. Im praying that God gives them great strength and courage to get through this
We need to live in hope, that an absolute tragedy like this will never happen again. God bless to the Fletcher Family. R.I.P Elliot

Just heard about a 12 year old boy being stabbed to death at a Brisbane school, this saddens me to no end. What are we doing wrong, where our youth feel the need to inflict such violence on each other.. So sad.
