Simone memorial motion withdrawn
By SAMANTHA TURNBULL
A PROPOSAL to name a section of parkland after Simone Strobel has been withdrawn by Lismore City councillor Ros Irwin.
Cr Irwin was set to propose a motion at a council meeting on Tuesday night for a permanent memorial to be built in memory of the deceased German tourist, and for the site where her body was found to be named after her.
However, Cr Irwin withdrew the motion before the meeting took place after she was told by several of her fellow councillors they would not support the idea.
"I spoke to a number of councillors and they thought it was a bit premature," she said.
Cr Irwin said she planned to propose the idea at a later meeting.
Almost three weeks since Simone's body was discovered near Oakes Oval in Lismore's Uralba Street, police have still not con- firmed how she died.
