    Candice Locke (29) ran screaming to a house where Corey Christensen (37) and Tom Davey (27) were watching football. They let her in, and not long after they were stabbed to death

    I think this is going to get even more interesting.

    A baby-faced teenager who was questioned over the alleged stabbing deaths of two Good Samaritans has been released from police custody.

    Dean Webber, 19, was allowed to walk free on Tuesday morning as police continue to investigate the deaths of Corey Christensen, 37 and Tom Davy, 27, in a quiet north Queensland town early on Monday morning.

    Webber was arrested on Monday and taken in for questioning, but was released on Tuesday morning pending an ongoing investigation.

    It comes as tributes have flowed for father-of-three Mr Christensen and Mr Davy, who has been remembered by devastated friends as a 'huge, kind-hearted bloke'.

    Mr Davy and Mr Christensen were reportedly killed after a brawl broke out at a home in the seaside town of Alva Beach, south of Townsville, on Sunday night.

    Police believe Candice Locke, 29, banged on the front door of a home on Topton St begging to be let inside and claiming she was being pursued by a group of men.

    Mr Webber reportedly opened the door and let Ms Locke into the family home that is known by locals as 'Webber's Hut'.

    A brawl involving a group of men broke out later in the evening, with Mr Christensen and Mr Davy reportedly dying as a result.

    It is not known what sparked the fight, with police currently interviewing witnesses to understand the relationships between those involved.

    CONFUSION surrounds the death of two men in north Queensland, with police still trying to piece together a sequence of bizarre events.

    Corey Christensen, 37, and Tom Davy, 27, were found with critical stab wounds outside a property in the sleepy beachside town of Alva on Sunday.

    Candice Locke, 29, had knocked on the door of the Topton St home, south of Townsville, just before the men received the stab wounds.

    ?A group of men then attended the address and a disturbance occurred, during which time two men sustained fatal injuries,? a Queensland Police spokesperson said.

    The house is occupied by local teenager Dean Webber, 19, who police today said did not know the woman or two deceased men.

    But they did confirm Mr Webber provided assistance to the woman, who had sustained injuries prior to knocking on the door.

    ?We believe we have a good idea as to who was involved in the stabbing ? but we?re not going to provide details at this point,? Mr Lawson told reporters.

    ?It?s going to be a complex investigation. We?re trying to backtrack and establish where people have been, who they?ve been with, what they?ve seen and what?s occurred.?

    The woman remains in hospital and investigators have been unable to obtain a full and detailed version of events.

    ?Detectives remain in Alva and investigations are ongoing,? a police spokesperson said.

    Police and paramedics attended the scene just after midnight, desperately trying to resuscitate the two men but they were unable to be saved.

    Mr Christensen was a dad to three young boys and social media pictures showed the Queenslander was married two years ago.

    I am so confused by all this.

    It makes it seem like she knocked on the door seeking safety, they let her in, and some dudes ran up and started fighting, killing the 2 occupants.

    But then it said the home is occupied by someone else, who doesn't know any of the people. WTF?

    I actually had to edit this one yesterday after I posted it. Initial reports said Dean Webber would be charged. Then they backtracked and said he had been released without charge. And now today, they are saying he did it in self defense. Sooooo weird

    I read a bunch of articles and it’s still confusing me. From what I can gather, Candice was at a house with her boyfriend, (Davy) and his friend (Christensen), possibly at a gathering to watch a rugby final. Somehow her shoulder was dislocated there, and she ran out to the 19 year old’s home. He let her in, and after that the two men (maybe more?) ran to his house. They were stabbed outside, possibly by the teenager and possibly in self defence. The teenager apparently didn’t know the dead guys. Also, her dad used to be a rugby player. I don’t know how much of that is accurate though since the media have reported on it pretty poorly and the police haven’t helped matters much.

    Seems like the 2 guys who were stabbed and killed are beng portrayed as heroes by trying to rescue her (letting her into the house) but the whole "it was someone else's house and that person didn't know the guys" thing is what is confusing me.

    That's another confusing thing. The 2 guys killed let her in, ended up dead....but then it says a 19 year old was the resident and he didn't know the 2 guys or the girl? SO confused lol.

    The father of the woman at the centre of a mysterious double stabbing has broken his silence, as a witness to the deadly brawl walked through the crime scene with police.

    Tom Davy, 27, and Corey Christensen, 37, died from stab wounds and massive blood loss on the street outside a house in Alva Beach, near Townsville, on Sunday night.

    The two men chased Mr Davy's girlfriend Candice Locke, 29, to the Topton Street family house, where she had begged Dean Webber, 19, to let her inside for safety.

    Police are investigating whether Mr Webber, who was released without charge after a night of questioning, acted in self-defence when the men later stormed his house.

    Candice's father Martin Locke, a former North Queensland Cowboys player, said his injured daughter was grappling with the 'enormity' of the situation.

    Late on Wednesday afternoon, police discretely ushered a man understood to have watched the bloody brawl back to the scene of the stabbing deaths.

    Wearing a t-shirt and thongs, the key witness gave his account to detectives from the front lawn of the house in Alva Beach late on Wednesday afternoon.

    He is believed to have been at the house when Mr Christensen and Mr Davy were stabbed after storming the front door.

    Police said they walked through a witness who was there at 'a relevant time'.
    Earlier on Wednesday the devastated families of the two men who were stabbed comforted each other as police continued to piece together their puzzling deaths.

    Groups arrived separately and stopped to look at floral tributes to the two men, less than a metre from a bloodstained gutter.

    One woman broke down in tears and sobbed loudly as she was supported by another man who then helped her to a car as they held on to each other.

    A locksmith was seen repairing a sliding door at the front of the house where the pair died, which remains a crime scene and under police guard.

    Mr Webber was arrested but released without charge on Monday with police now believing he heroically defended a complete stranger in self-defence.

    Mr Webber sported a significant limp and clutched the back of his left thigh as he arrived back at the house with officers on Tuesday afternoon.

    Okay so these 2 dudes weren't "heroes" trying to help the woman. They were going after her, and the 19 year old let her in.

    Think the title needs to be changed...

    A teenage Air Force cadet heard a chilling threat just moments before three men tore his door off its hinges and stormed into his home.

    Moments earlier Dean Webber, 19, had let a distressed and injured stranger, Candice Locke, 29, inside the property and called police.

    'We've got you now, you little p****,' one of the men told Mr Webber early on Monday morning before the trio burst inside, The Weekend Australian reported.

    In the melee that followed, Corey Christensen, 37, and Tom Davy, 27, were fatally stabbed, shocking the sleepy north Queensland tourist town of Alva Beach.

    One of the men was stabbed twice in the chest near the heart and lungs, while the other had an artery severed after being stabbed in the armpit, The Courier Mail reported.

    Mr Webber was believed to be acting in self-defence, having lashed out in the dark with a small kitchen knife at the three intruders.

    Ms Locke had been riding quad bikes on the beach with a group of locals including Mr Christensen, a father-of-three, and her alleged boyfriend Tom Davy.
    Whether or not Ms Locke and Mr Davy were in a relationship is unclear, with locals telling The Australian the pair had split.

    During alcohol-fuelled Grand Final night festivities Ms Locke fell off her bike and injured her shoulder.

    She wanted to call an ambulance but the men told her not to for fear of being arrested, so she ran off in search of help and came across the property of Mr Webber.

    Ms Locke warned the teenager that there were a group of men after her, one of whom who she was allegedly in a relationship with.

    'Don't let them get me. They are bad people,' she told Mr Webber.

    The young Air Cadet had dialled triple-0 twice that night, when Ms Locke first arrived at his house and a second time when the group of men were outside the property.

    He was first told by the officer on-duty at the nearest station that no one would be able to attend the property as they were observing people in custody and he should sit tight.

    The second time he dialled, it took police 40 minutes to reach the house.

    By that time, the men had broken down the door and Mr Webber had grabbed a kitchen knife as he was set upon by the men.

    The young man stabbed out in the dark and killed them? What are the chances? And how traumatizing for him to be doing what he thought was right by helping someone and now he has to live with the fact that he killed 2 people, albeit in self-defense.

    Is it normal in Australia for the police to tell people who call 000 "Nah, we gotta sit and watch these dudes in jail." And then take 40 minutes to arrive after he called a second time?

    I'm guessing it's a super small force in out in a very rural area. Once they take a prisoner into custody they are tied up until they finish. Distances are so large between towns that there is no backup and it takes a long time for help to arrive in any situation. I have seen departments here in the US that worked like that.

    We wait a long time for police where I am - even with someone chasing someone up & down the street with a butcher's knife they took hours. & it took the emergency operator 15mins to get the local station to even pick up the call in the first place.

    We're about a 30-40min drive from the closest police though - Alva Beach is only 14mins from the closest one. & I'm not 100% certain they were actually supposed to tell them to wait - because they managed to drop everything & get their arses there after it all went to hell.

    It seems like maybe they were trying to judge the urgency of the call over the phone & they gambled on it being non-urgent just because it was a big inconvenience for them at the time ( I could be wrong though because I don't have any experience of regional QLD police)

    There are a bunch of sympathetic articles tonight from local newspapers, talking about how traumatised the officers are. Maybe the ones who responded to the scene aren't the same ones who told the victims to ride it out, but if they are, at least part of their trauma is probably guilt - & fear of the oncoming po!ice standards review if they were supposed to organise an immediate response



    (I'd link the articles but they're all paywalled at the moment, just search "Ayr police, traumatised, Alva beach" or something along those lines & they should all come up).

    A teenager who stabbed two men to death after they broke into his home avoided a double-murder charge because a phone call to emergency services recorded the entire grisly ordeal.

    Dean Webber was in his Alva Beach home in north Queensland alone watching the NRL grand final last year when a distressed woman arrived on his doorstep seeking shelter.

    The woman, 29-year-old Candice Locke, told him 'very bad people' were looking for her, and a short time later three burly men ripped through his screen door.

    They allegedly grabbed him by the throat, lifted him off the ground and threw him to the floor.

    The diesel fitter, who was only 19 years old at the time, only survived because he found a 15 centimetre kitchen knife in the darkness and jabbed it haphazardly in the direction of the intruders.

    Corey Christensen, 37, and Tom Davy, 27, staggered from the house on Topton Street and bled to death on the lawn and in the gutter after being stabbed inside.

    Mr Webber was never charged for the incident. It was deemed he acted in self defence, protecting not only his own life but that of an injured female.

    Mr Webber's family say they have no doubt the teen would've been facing a double-murder charge had it not been for a 50-minute recording of his triple-0 call prior to the attack.

    The operator left the line open, recording the entire ordeal and effectively acting as evidence to prove Mr Webber acted in self defence, The Sunday Telegraph reported.

    His father Brett Webber, the former Ayr surf club president, told the publication had the attack come a week earlier, that phone call wouldn't have been possible.

    'We only had the phone transmitter installed three days earlier – before, you had to stand out the front of the house to get mobile phone reception. He's incredibly lucky that way, but very unlucky the other way. It's a lot for a young bloke to deal with.'

    Mr Webber has been in therapy since the incident and has taken to spending more and more time at home.
