The ABC has been told that Ms Dunn, a sex worker, had been sharing the apartment with another woman, also understood to be a sex worker.

Police sources said the flatmate came back to the apartment yesterday afternoon because she had not heard from Ms Dunn, and found her dead with fatal cuts to her neck.

"It could have been any of us … It's in the back of our minds.

Woman killed in Sydney stabbing spree identified as 24yo Michaela Dunn © Instagram Michaela Dunn was a keen traveller and had recently visited Sri Lanka and the USA.

Ms Harper said that the threat of violence was something many sex workers and escorts had to contend with.

"It is a struggle to know that we could get up and go to work and just try and put food on the table and then have our lives cut short by something like this," she said.

"There's certain safety measures I take, but at the end of the day I'm a five-foot-five (1.6 metre) woman. I could probably be overpowered by almost any man out there.

"But that's not to say that we expect to be killed."

Ms Dunn's Instagram account shows she'd recently travelled to Sri Lanka and the USA on a months-long trip with friends.

Michaela Dunn's death a 'footnote' to hero praise

Armed with nothing more than chairs, a milk crate and a crowbar, several men chased a knife-wielding man as he ran up Clarence Street and jumped on the bonnet and roof of a car.

Social media has been full of praise for the men, and Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said they were "the highest order of heroes".

Woman killed in Sydney stabbing spree identified as 24yo Michaela Dunn © ABC News Michaela Dunn had recently posted photos from her holidays.

But Ms Harper said there had been too much focus on the men, and not enough on Ms Dunn, who died.

"In a few articles I've read it's [her death] been tacked on like a footnote almost … they don't even necessarily use the word 'woman'; they just use her job title," Ms Harper said.

"It's quite abrupt and it reminds the whole sex-worker community that it might be all we're known as some day."

Ms Harper said Ms Dunn had also been the target of victim blaming.

"If a cashier got held up at gunpoint, people wouldn't blame them. They'd be sympathetic," she said.

"When sex workers experience violence or sexual assault, there's still a widely spread view that by being a sex worker we've somehow offered ourselves up to be the punching bag of men who are sexually or physically violent," she said.

"If something unfortunate does happen to us … I wouldn't be 'Rose', I would just be 'that sex worker'."

Commissioner Fuller said earlier it appeared Mr Ney had visited Ms Dunn for sexual services.

"But in fairness again, we need to canvass and get statements from neighbours. We need to look at her history, look at her social media, before we confirm that," he said.

Tourist Ayu Devina had been staying in the apartment building where the woman was found.

She said she did not hear anything, but was "shocked" when police told her what happened.

"I'm sad for her. It's an awful thing," she said.
