Toyah Cordingley was a beautiful, highly popular 24-year old animal and music loving young lady living a carefree life in Cairns, North Queensland. Toyah’s body was discovered in sand dunes at Wangetti Beach, north of Cairns, on October 22, a day after she was reported missing.
Toyah was taken from us way too early. A young lady just walking her dog on a beach was brutally murdered in broad daylight, in a crime that has shaken the whole country.
Despite a huge amount of information collected by police, the killer is still at large. We need all the help we can get to find this killer. There may be others at risk.
Toyah’s favourite song was Your Guardian Angel by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. The band start their Australian Tour on the 29th of November in Brisbane. Tour publicist John Howarth was contacted by a colleague and informed that the song was often referred to as ‘Toyah’s Song.’ It was her go-to song, her ring tone for a long time and a song that her friends and family relate heavily to, more now than ever.
John contacted lead singer Ronnie Winter to see if the band can dedicate the song to Toyah on all of their upcoming Australian shows, and they will be. Ronnie has also come up with a new lyric video for the track, and the band have pinned the story under the video.
“This lyric video will stand as a living memorial for those we have lost along the way. If you know someone who has passed and this song was special to them feel free to leave their story in the comment thread or a simple name and date of passing to have them remembered and thought of by all…”
R.I.P. Toyah Cordingley, Bless you beautiful lady and we certainly will make Your Guardian Angel ‘Toyah’s Song.’ Music can bring us all together, it bonds us, it strengthens us. Please spread the word as well as the song. We need to find the killer.
