Sonia courageously shares her personal tragedy with Crime Stoppers in exclusive videos.
In 2010, Sonia's daughter Bianca Girven was murdered by her ex-partner Rhys Austin. Bianca was 22 years old when murdered as a result of Domestic Homicide.
In these video's, the details of the crime are presented as peices of a puzzle which Sonia herself attempted to put together in an effort to understand what really happened.
Sonia encouraged calls to Crime Stoppers due to the anonymity guarantee and she hoped that Rhys's brothers would call and share vital information about what really happened on this tragic night of Bianca's murder.
Sonia made up posters as part of her attempt to make sure that each piece of information was collated by Crime Stoppers appropriately for the Police investigation.
After 18 weeks of investigation and following a telephone call between Sonia and Rhys Austin, Police arrested Rhys (22 yrs old) on 05 August 2010 for the murder of Bianca.
Bianca Girven's son Ziggy was only two years old when she was murdered by her ex-partner Rhys Austin.
