A grieving mother is urging police to charge the woman who allegedly stood by while her daughter was murdered by her ex-boyfriend, a former bikie.

Shelsea Schilling was discovered dead in a Southport unit alongside Bronson Ellery, known as "Lizard Man" because of his prominent facial tattoos.

He allegedly attacked and killed his ex-girlfriend in front of two other people before taking his own life.

One of the witnesses spoke to police on Wednesday after being approached by officers because they believed she had important information.

Shelsea's mum, Bonnie Mobbs, paid tribute to her "amazing daughter and best friend", and vowed to get her justice.

"The woman saw the whole thing and also somebody else was there and seen the whole thing," she said.

"These two that were there didn't do anything.

"How can someone watch someone die but then don't get charged for it? Apparently the law says you can do that.

"What person doesn't ring the ambulance or the police?"

Ellery allegedly wrote a letter saying sorry to Shelsea's family after the brutal attack.

"He said I'm apologising for killing your daughter. I loved her," Ms Mobbs said.

She said Shelsea broke up with Ellery more than two years ago because of his abusive ways and had lived in fear since then.

Shelsea repeatedly moved house and changed jobs to try and escape his threats on her life, according to her mum.

Ms Mobbs said her daughter was kind and trusting, and that the only trouble she ever had in her life was from her controlling ex.

She said Ellery was obsessed with her and had served jail time for breaching a domestic violence order.

Shelsea would have turned 21 on November 30. Her funeral will be held on Monday.

"I plan to wear colourful clothes to celebrate her beautiful life," Ms Mobbs said.

"She was loved by everyone, she was such a kind-hearted person who didn't judge anyone."
