Water Polo Coach, Lilie James Found Lifèless At Sydney CBD School

A comprehensive search is currently underway in the waters as authorities strive to locate a male colleague linked to the tragic death of a young woman at a school in Sydney’s central business district. The deceased had suffered severe head injuries.

The somber discovery was made shortly after midnight, when law enforcement located the lifeless body of Lilie James, a 21-year-old water polo coach.

Her life was tragically cut short in the restroom area of a gymnasium within St. Andrew’s Cathedral School on Kent Street. Alarming concerns arose when her parents reached out to emergency services, reporting her absence after work.

The ongoing search efforts are primarily focused on Diamond Bay Reserve in Vaucluse, where a phone call suggested that this may have been the last known location of the suspect, Paul Thijssen.

Law enforcement agencies are diligently sweeping the reserve and patrolling the waters off South Head in the quest to locate Thijssen.

Thijssen, a former student of the school, had been working there as a sports assistant. It has come to light that James and Thijssen were briefly involved in a romantic relationship which James subsequently chose to end.

New South Wales Police Superintendent Martin Fileman described the crime scene as deeply unsettling for the officers who made the discovery. The evidence strongly indicates that James fell victim to a “severe” act of homicide.

Superintendent Fileman elaborated on the situation, stating, “Last night, officers from the Sydney city police area command responded to a welfare check and attended St. Andrew’s Cathedral School. It was at the school’s gym area that the lifeless body of a young woman in her early twenties was found. The nature of her injuries left no doubt that she was a victim of homicide.”

According to Trendygists reports, it appears that James may have been assaulted with a hammer. The investigation into this tragic incident remains ongoing, with authorities diligently working to uncover the full details of this horrifying crime.
