Sister of murdered teen believed accused was sexually grooming

Amber-Rose Rush’s sister sounded warnings about her friendship with her accused killer in the months before she died.

The trial of former doctor Venod Skantha, who is accused of murdering the 16-year-old, today entered its second day in the High Court at Dunedin.

The crown claims Mr Skantha stabbed the teenager to silence her, after she told the 32-year-old she was going to the police and his employer, Southern DHB, with allegations of him “touching up” minors, supplying them with alcohol and offering money for sex.
