    •  They allegedly grabbed the teenager by the throat and threw him to the ground 
    •  Webber grabbed a knife and stabbed two of the men to death in the darkness 
    •  Inquest has started to determine the hours leading up to the fateful deaths 
    •  Three distressing Triple-Zero calls made by Mr Webber have been released 

    Dean Webber (pictured) made three harrowing Triple-Zero calls on the night he stabbed two men who broke into his home 

    Harrowing Triple-Zero calls made by a teenager who stabbed two men to death after they stormed his house have been released. 

    Dean Webber, then 19, was alone in his home in Alva Beach, north Queensland, when a woman frantically knocked on his door on September 30, 2018. 

    Candace Locke, 31, said she had injured her shoulder and ‘very bad people’ were looking for her after boozy celebrations of the NRL Grand Final.  

    A group of men including her boyfriend Tom Davy, 27, and friend Corey Christensen, 37, came banging on Mr Webber’s front door at about 12.30am.

    Three men ripped through the screen door and allegedly grabbed the young diesel fitter by the throat and threw him to the ground. 

    Both Mr Davy and Mr Christensen were stabbed in the ensuing melee and Mr Webber made three distressing calls to emergency services throughout the night, two before the fatal fight and one afterwards. 

    ‘I need police right now, I’ve just stabbed a bloke who broke into my house,’ Mr Webber told the operator at the beginning of the final call.

    ‘They broke into my house. There’s blood everywhere. I think I killed him. I was scared for my life. The other two are going to kill me.’

    The audio has been released as part of an ongoing Coronial inquest into the circumstances surrounding the two deaths, the Townsville Bulletin reported.

    Candace Locke (pictured) took refuge at Mr Webber’s house on September 30, 2018, and told him she was running from ‘bad people’. The group of men then broke in to Mr Webber’s home 

    Mr Webber first placed a call to Queensland Ambulance Service at 12.24am.

    Ms Locke could be heard sobbing in the background of the phone call, telling the operator she was pushed from a buggy and ran to the home for help.

    Distress was evident in Mr Webber’s voice as he revealed the men had arrived on his property and were trying to break in.  

    Mr Webb then placed a call to Queensland Police explaining the men were trying to break into his home and that he was housing a distressed woman he didn’t know.     

    ‘You’re not allowed to be here… you need to leave now… I need police right now…’ Mr Webber could be heard saying.  

    At 12.57am, Mr Webber made his chilling final emergency call.     

    ‘I’ve just killed a bloke most likely. I think I stabbed him in the heart. There is a bloke dying. I can see him out on the street. He’s not moving. 

    ‘I don’t know how I’m still alive to be honest,’ he told the operator.  

    Mr Webber said he ‘did everything he could’ to protect himself and said he was still holding the knife that he’d used to ‘keep it as evidence’.

    ‘He grabbed my arm, I had it in my left arm and I tried anything I could to protect myself because he was going to kill me,’ he said. 

    Mr Webber placed the knife down on the table when he was asked and began sobbing uncontrollably as he turned on the kitchen lights and surveyed the scene.

    ‘Oh my god… oh my god… there is blood everywhere… it’s everywhere,’ he sobbed.

    ‘I’m too young for this.’

    Mr Webber repeatedly begged for emergency services to arrive and asked the operator to stay on the phone with him. 

    ‘Am I going to go to jail for this?’ he asked. 

    The audio ended with police arriving at the home and shouting at Mr Webber not to move before putting him in handcuffs.       

    Mr Webber was never charged after the Triple-Zero operator he had called prior to the attack reportedly left the line open for 50 minutes – effectively providing evidence he acted in self defence.   

    On Tuesday, Mr Webber’s lawyer Harvey Walters submitted an application stating he had been diagnosed with ‘moderate to severe’ post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of the coronal investigation.

    He said the man became extremely emotional when speaking about the events two years ago and advised he be excused from taking the stand. 

    TIMELINE OF EVENTS IN THE ALVA BEACH STABBINGS

    June 2018: Candice Locke, 29 and Tom Davy, 27, meet via a dating app. Ms Locke was living in Ayr, about 90 minutes south of Townsville, and he in Cairns. 

    September 30, 2018: They met up with each other in Alva Beach, north of Queensland, for the NRL Grand Final long weekend. 

    The pair went for a fishing trip on a beach where they met local father-of-three Corey Christensen, 37. 

    Ms Locke hurt her shoulder and sought refuge from the group of men she was with in 19-year-old Dean Webber’s Topton Street home.

    Mr Davy, Mr Christensen and a third man arrived at the home and tried to break in.  

    The men ripped Mr Webber’s screen door and stormed inside his home.  

    Mr Webber ‘blindly thrust a kitchen knife in the dark’ to defend himself, hitting one man in the chest and the other through the armpit. 

    Mr Webber was arrested when police arrived too late at about 4.30am, to save either man but was released without charge as detectives decided he acted in self-defence. 

    October 13, 2020: The inquest into the two men’s deaths begins.   

    The court heard after several hours of drinking, Ms Locke, Mr Davey, Mr Christensen and a group of his friends were joyriding quad bikes on the beach. 

    Ms Locke fell off one of the bikes, dislocated her shoulder and went to seek help because she said no one took her injury seriously. 

    She ran off and knocked on Mr Webber’s door pleading for assistance at 11.30pm   

    The group of men then tried to break into the home around 12.30am, while they yelled at them not to call the cops, police sources said. 

    Mr Webber called police but was told there was only one officer at the Ayr station, about 20 minutes away and couldn’t come immediately due to people in custody.

    Instead, Mr Webber turned off all the lights and shut the curtains. 

    Ten minutes later, the men ripped Mr Webber’s screen door and stormed inside his home saying ‘we’ve got you now, you little p***k’.

    The men grabbed Mr Webber ’round the throat, lifted him off the ground and then threw him to the floor’.   

    Mr Davy and Mr Christensen were stabbed a total of three times and stumbled outside before bleeding to death in the gutter. 

    Mr Webber’s lawyer, Harvey Walters, also submitted an application stating he had been diagnosed with ‘moderate to severe’ post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of the coronal investigation. 

    October 14, 2020: Inquest continues and harrowing audio of Mr Webber’s three desperate Triple-Zero calls is released.   

    Mr Webber first placed a call to Queensland Ambulance Service at 12.24am and Ms Locke could be heard sobbing in the background, telling the operator she was pushed from a buggy and ran to the home for help.  

    Distress was evident in Mr Webber’s voice as he revealed the men had arrived on his property and were trying to break in. 

    Mr Webb then placed a call to Queensland Police explaining the men were trying to break into his home and that he was housing a distressed woman he didn’t know. 

    At 12.57am, Mr Webber made his chilling final emergency call saying he had ‘just killed a bloke’ and there was ‘blood everywhere’.

    The court also heard about a walk-through Detective Sergeant Gavin Neal did of the Topton St home with both Mr Webber and Mr Bengoa, one of the men from the group, after the stabbings.

    Mr Webber told the detective he was ‘fearful for his life’.
