Rock band The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus honour Toyah during Aussie tour

The world is a cruel place at times.
Toyah Cordingley was a beautiful, highly popular 24 year old animal and music loving young lady. Ms Cordingley’s body was discovered in the dunes at Wangetti Beach, north of Cairns, on October 22, a day after she was reported missing.
Toyah was taken from us way too early. A young lady just walking her dog on a beach was murdered, in a crime that has shaken the whole country.
Despite a huge amount of information collected by police, the killer is still at large. We need all the help we can get to find this killer.. big or small, any help is necessary. There may be others at risk.
Toyah’s favourite song in fact was ‘Your Guardian Angel’ rock band The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, who begin their Australian Tour in Brisbane later this month.
John Howarth, the tour publicist was contacted by a colleague, and was informed that the song was often referred to as ‘Toyah’s Song’. It was her go to song, her ring tone for a long time and a song that her friends and family relate heavily to, more now than ever.
Without a second thought, John contacted lead singer Ronnie Winter to see if the band can dedicate the song to Toyah on all of their Australian Shows… and they will be. Ronnie has also come up with a new lyric video and the band have pinned the story under the video.
“This lyric video will stand as a living memorial for those we have lost along the way. If you know someone who has passed and this song was special to them feel free to leave their story in the comment thread or a simple name and date of passing to have them remembered and thought of by all,” he says.
Watch the video below.

R.I.P. Toyah Cordingley. Bless you beautiful lady and we certainly will make ‘Your Guardian Angel’ Toyah’s Song.
Music can bring us all together, it bonds us, it strengthens us. Please spread the word and the song. We need to find the killer.
