The grieving cop whose fiancée died in the Westfield Bondi Junction stabbing rampage is still struggling with the tragedy one week on.

NSW police officer Ashley Wildey rushed to the scene to help his colleagues last Saturday only to to be told that his wife-to-be was one of the victims.

Dawn Singleton, 25, the daughter of multi-millionaire advertising guru John Singleton was among six innocent bystanders stabbed to death by Joel Cauchi, 40,

She was due to marry her high school sweetheart Mr Wildey in coming months and was buying make-up for her upcoming nuptials when her life was tragically cut short.

Friends and police colleagues rallied around a shattered Mr Wildey and have barely left his side in the last week.

While it’s still early days, friends said that he’s a ‘tough kid’ and hope that he will eventually return to the force.

‘His police mates have been very, very good – the boys brought around hamburgers, chips and Coke and have stayed with him, talking and making sure he knows he is supported,’ a close family friend told The Daily Telegraph.

‘They don’t want to lose him. He is very good at his job.

‘He has always wanted to help people. He is young, and I know he has helped crack some cases already.’

The friend added that Mr Wildey visited Ms Singleton’s mum Julie on Wednesday to pay his respects.

In the days leading up to her death, Dawn bought her wedding dress and started sending out ‘save the date’ invitations to her loved ones and friends ahead of the special day.

The venue had just been booked and she had hired wedding planners used by Kyle Sandilands for his nuptials.

It was previously reported that Mr Wildey knew his fiancee was at Westfield at the time and frantically tried to call her en route before his colleagues confirmed his worst fears.

Australian fashion powerhouse White Fox Boutique led the tributes to Ms Singleton, where she worked as the company’s e-commerce assistant.

‘Dawn was a sweet, kind-hearted person who had her whole life ahead of her,’ the company wrote on Instagram.

‘She was really amazing. We are all truly devastated by this loss.

‘We send our condolences to her partner, the Singleton family and her friends. She will always be remembered as part of the White Fox family.’

Also killed were new mum Ashlee Good, 38, mother-of-two Jade Young, 47, Pikria Darchia, 55, Chinese national Yixuan Cheng, 27 and security guard Faraz Tahir, 30.
