Ms. Woodford, 56, was kidnapped, raped and killed in March 2016 while responding to an appeal in Fregon, a remote community in South Australia’s Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands.
She was alone On call, responding to a call from her killer Dudley Davey alone.
Davey pleaded guilty to her rape and murder, and is serving a prison sentence of at least 32 years.
Ms. Woodford’s death resulted in the creation of the Gayle Act, which requires a second person to accompany a medical assistant outside of business hours or unscheduled missions in remote communities.
The coroner recommended tightening and expanding this provision, along with stricter probation requirements, better information sharing, a constant police presence in the area and the prohibition of high-risk offenders from APY Lands.
