Loved ones have bid farewell to Karen Ristevski at a funeral in Melbourne this morning.
Karen’s daughter Sarah, 21, led the procession out of St John’s Uniting Church in Essendon holding a photo of her mum, whose remains were found by a passerby in rural bushland last month.
The 47-year-old fashion boutique owner had been missing since June 29, last year.
Her husband Borce, who is the “No. 1 suspect” in his wife’s death according to his lawyer, was a pallbearer.
“We always wanted closure, but it’s hard to deal with,” Marguerite Knight, Karen’s aunt, told WHO. “I always go back to the last time the family were together in March. No-one would have ever seen this coming.”
