Stacey Train grew up in a churchgoing family before branching off on her own to join an independent church run by the Train brothers' father, Ronald Train.

At this church Stacey met Nathaniel Train.

Stacey married Nathaniel in her late teens and they had two children. 

In February 2004, Stacey began her teaching career at the Charters Towers State High School.

By 2007, Stacey was the Herberton State School head of department. The school won an award for Indigenous education excellence. 

In 2009 Stacey was principal at Proston state school, west of Gympie.

In 2011 Stacey attended a five-day Indigenous-led Stronger Smarter school leaders' training course at the Aboriginal community of Cherbourg.  

Stacey left Nathaniel and married his brother Gareth.

Gareth (according to his father) was "on the Asperger's line. Very difficult to control, very overpowering".

A Camooweal neighbour told the ABC she had witnessed Gareth "dragging" Stacey by the hair up the stairs and into their home.  

In August 2021 Nathaniel Train had a heart attack while he was working as principal of the Walgett Community College.

He joined Stacey and his brother Gareth Train.

Stacey Train had been working at Tara Shire State College for several years as a teacher and head of curriculum. 

But multiple parents whose children attend Tara Shire State College could not remember Stacey Train. 

On December 16 2021 Stacey Train quit her job at Tara Shire State College - one day before the state's Covid vaccination mandate came into effect.

"She chose to resign rather than have the vaccination," a source said. 


Stacey Train was a willing participant in the gunfight.

"She was shooting at the police with the best of them," a police source told The Australian. 

"She got shot and went down and was still shooting at police as she was laying on the ground. She was then shot and killed."
