Tara Brown murdered by ex-partner

Tara Brown went to police for help just days before she was murdered but it wasn't forthcoming.  Her ex ran her off the road and beat her with a metal plate while she lay injured in her upturned car.  

Tara had been on life support after the attack on Tuesday but died at 9pm on Wednesday night at the Gold Coast University Hospital. 

Lionet Patea 24, the father of her child, is in hospital recovering from self-inflicted stab wounds to his neck and chest.

CCTV footage shows Ms Brown being chased in her car and rammed off the road by a man driving a black four wheel drive.

This young woman went to police for help to leave her former partner Lionel Patea, an alleged sergeant-at-arms with the Bandidos bikie gang.

Queensland Police Commissioner Jo-Ann Miller said the matter was being investigated. "A senior officer will be investigating the appropriateness of the response to Ms Brown seeking assistance" she said.  

But do we really expect a truthful outcome when police are tasked with investigating police?  I doubt it.
