White’s granddaughter watched the brutal murder unfold as she screamed for help.

The knifeman then fled the scene in White’s blue 2009 Hyundai – her granddaughter was left uninjured.

Emergency services rushed to the scene in south-west Brisbane on Saturday evening but were unable to save her.

Cops described it as an “abhorrent” and “cowardly” attack.

They are trying to track down four men including the alleged attacker who was wearing a hoodie and medical mask at the time of the attack.

And they found the stolen car later in Springfield Lakes – taking it in for forensic examination.

Police released video footage of the four people of interest in Vyleen’s murder on Sunday.

The CCTV shows the men standing around a blue car wearing caps.

In a statement Queensland cops said: “Investigators believe the four people depicted in the vision, captured from a Bruny Street, Springfield Lakes address yesterday evening, may be able to assist them with their enquiries.

“The vision also depicts a vehicle of interest previously mentioned in an earlier media release, a blue 2009 Hyundai Getz with Queensland registration 432 TYO.”

White’s daughter Danice told 9News that she was “the most loving, compassionate and caring person you could ever meet”.

And according to Courier Mail she revealed that her dad had suggested White go to a different shopping centre in Redbank that day.

“Dad said, ‘Why don’t you to go to Redbank plaza?’ If only she’d listened that day, it would have not been her.

“We were going to spend the afternoon together doing a bible study… I’m struggling to control my thoughts right now.”

The grandmother died at the Redbank Plains Shopping Centre at around 6.10pm on Saturday.

Cops have asked anyone in the area to get in touch with relevant CCTV or dashcam footage.
