The family of murdered young woman Shelsea Schilling are demanding the Queensland Coroner open an inquest into her brutal death.
The 20-year-old was slain by Lizard Man Bronson Ellery, 24, inside his Gold Coast apartment on November 11, 2016.
Ellery, whose face and body was plastered with tattoos, killed Ms Schilling, his ex-girlfriend, before taking his own life.
More than 18 months on, Ms Schilling's family are still desperately searching for answers on the moments leading up to her murder, the Gold Coast Bulletin reported.
Ms Shilling's mother Bonnie Mobbs has written to the Coroner 'asking for further investigation to our beloved daughter Shealsea Sky Schilling who had her life callously taken away from her'.
'Why was our daughter hunted down like an animal? Why did she fight so hard for anonymity and a normal life away from Bronson Ellery? Was our daughter's life in vain?,' Ms Mobbs wrote in October last year.
The letter detailed how there were 'too many unanswered questions and unexplained whys' about Ms Schilling's death and called for help in getting 'justice'.
