Rye Hunt's Sister's Touching Tribute Following Birth Of Baby

Rye Hunt’s sister has named her newborn baby after her younger brother following his tragic death.

Romany Brodribb gave birth to a baby boy just days after Hunt’s body was formally identified.

She named him Edward James Rye in honour of his uncle.


Earlier this week, Brodribb took to Facebook to share her heartbreak over the death of her brother.

“I don’t think I’ve begun to process the enormity of what life without my baby brother will be like,” she said.

“But I know that he was loved- by so many of us. And I know he would want his life to be celebrated.

“Right now though... My heart feels fractured and my own words feel empty and insufficient.”

The 25-year-old went missing in Rio Di Janeiro last month. His body was later identified after washing up on a beach in Marica.
