  A year after splitting from his wife, Dan Ewing has spoken about finding love again. Home and Away star Dan Ewing says his girlfriend Katrina Risteska changed his life after he split from his wife of four years, Marni Little, in 2016. Ewing and the actress went public with their romance in December, several months after his split from Little – a break up he blames himself for.

Katrina Dawson was tragically killed in response to defending her friend who was pregnant. “We are so proud of our beautiful boy Tori, gone from this earth but forever in our memories as the most amazing life partner, son and brother we could ever wish for.

When Katrina Dawson died on December 14, 2014, she was in the prime of her life.

The Sydney barrister was just 38 when she was killed in the crossfire as NSW Police tried to diffuse the hostage situation in the Lindt Cafe in Martin Place which had already lasted nearly 18 hours.

An inquest into the tragedy revealed that unlike the first victim of the siege, Tori Johnson, who was shot point blank by lone gunman Man Haron Monis, the mother-of-three was fatally hit by several fragments from police bullets.

Since the State Coroner handed down his findings six days ago, both victims’ families have accused authorities of “mismanaging” the situation.

Both spoke candidly with ABC’s Four Corners about their frustration, and in Part Two the program’s special investigation into the siege, which aired on Monday night, Dawson’s mother Jane lamented that her daughter would be would be remembered for her death rather than her rich, full life.

“[One] of the saddest things about this is Katrina’s face is such an image in the paper,” she told Sarah Ferguson.

Dawson was happily married with three young children, Sasha, Oliver and Chloe, who were all under 10 when she died.

She was also a brilliant mind and finished high school with a perfect score of 100 before topping her class at University and eventually receiving the highest score in her NSW bar exam.

It was at law firm King & Wood Mallesons that she had met her husband Paul Smith.

“When you’re blessed with the brain she was blessed with, when you’re blessed with that kind of – all the things that could be right in the world happened for Katrina and she basically lived every moment to the full,” her mum said.

"But it triggered the response of the police and eventual freedom for most of the hostages. "Reports have also emerged that Katrina Dawson was shielding her pregnant friend from gunfire. These heroes were willing to lay down their lives so others might live."

"I think perhaps to have humility amongst all of that is a bigger sign of greatness than anything else in a sense."

Dawson was also a sister and an aunt.

She was the middle of three children and her brothers, Angus and Sandy Dawson, described her as "the glue" that held their family together.

"For Katrina, she was really at that point in her prime, with these three gorgeous kids who she absolutely adored, a wonderful husband, her career where she'd gone through the bar a few years before and was really flourishing now,"  Angus told Four Corners.

"There's a hole that can be never closed," he said, "but there's also a wonderful set of memories and history that can also never be taken away."

During last night's program, other hostages remembered her for remaining calm and providing comfort throughout the terrifying siege.

Her brother Sandy said he would miss her "judgement, her love, and her happiness".

"I don't feel like I can fill the gap," he told Four Corners.

"She was the glue in many ways in the family - we're all very close, we're all very lucky to be that way and I often wonder how mum and dad did it but she was the embodiment of happiness and what our family was all about and we will fight hard not to lose that and to honour her that way."

Since her death, Dawson's father Alexander said she had become "public property".

Her family is hoping as the drawn out investigation into her death nears its end, they will finally be able to claim her back.
