Community shocked by stabbing murder of their doctor

THE stabbing murder of a much-loved country doctor has sent shockwaves through the Blue Mountains community of Lithgow where her three orphaned children are being comforted by family and friends.

Flowers and messages of support flooded the clinic where Leonie Geldenhuys worked as a GP.

Her body was discovered by her two teenage sons on Tuesday while police later found the body of her estranged husband at a nearby property.

Police are treating the tragedy as a murder-suicide.

Ms Gelndenhuys son's were reunited with their Sydney-based sister late Tuesday.
