A second man charged with the murder of Feebie McIntosh on the Sunshine Coast
A grieving boyfriend had just proposed to a young woman before she was shot in the head by another man.
A second man has been charged in the alleged shooting murder of a much-loved young woman on the Sunshine Coast.
Currimundi woman Feebie McIntosh, 25, was allegedly shot in the head during an incident at a house on Coolum St in Dicky Beach on Friday morning.
Police described the incident as a ‘disruption’ and said after the alleged shooting a 58-year-old man took Ms McIntosh to the local hospital where she later died.
Bradley Ian Cotten, 30, was arrested on Friday afternoon after police stopped his vehicle on Fitzwilliam Street in Sippy Downs.
Police say Ms McIntosh and Mr Cotten knew each other, but initial inquiries suggest the alleged murder was unrelated to domestic violence.
It is understood the couple were visiting the house together where the alleged shooting took place and both were friends with the woman who owned the property.
The woman is assisting the police in their investigation.
Mr Cotten, who resides in Narangba 34 kilometers north of Brisbane, is due to appear in Maroochydore Magistrates Court on Saturday.
On Sunday, a second man, also 30, was charged with murder, unlawful possession of a Class A weapon, two counts of possession of a dangerous drug and one count each of possession of tainted property , dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and driving without a licence.
He was denied bail and will appear in court on Monday.
Tributes to Ms McIntosh have been pouring in on social media with friends describing her as a “bubbly, beautiful and caring” person.
“Rest in peace darling,” Jason Mawson wrote on Facebook.
“This should never have happened, I can’t believe it,” Cath Quinlan said.
Zac Claire remembered the “good soul” of Ms McIntosh.
He said, “Whenever I needed someone, you were there, helping me through some of my toughest times.”
In the weeks before her death, Ms McIntosh told friends on Facebook that she had received a heartwarming marriage proposal, which was contained in a word search puzzle created by her boyfriend Mitch White.
“Your [sic] love of my life and I can’t wait to… start our own little family,” Mr. White wrote in a letter posted on Facebook alongside the proposal.
Ms McIntosh said Mr White was ‘the nicest man ever’.
“The best part is you’re all mine,” she wrote.
