Backpacker victim memory lives on in traveller foundation

The brother of murdered York backpacker Caroline Stuttle is to launch a charity in her memory that will provide help and assistance to young travellers in trouble.

Richard Stuttle plans to start the charity, called Caroline's Rainbow Foundation, to fund 'safe rooms' or a night's free accommodation for distressed travellers in hostels around Australia.

The charity would also make safety videos to be shown to school pupils and gap-year students planning a year away.

Stuttle announced his plans to launch Caroline's Rainbow Foundation when he was in Australia last week attending a committal hearing for Ian Previte, his sister's alleged killer.

The 19-year-old was attacked and thrown off the Burnett River Bridge in Queensland in 2002.
