The 17-year-old was allegedly held in a headlock and stabbed in the back multiple times during the fight in broad daylight at a well-known dog park. 

Emergency crews rushed to the park about 5.40pm, but he died at the scene despite attempts by paramedics to save him.

In a chilling Instagram post, before anyone had been arrested, The elder Geppert promised revenge: ‘I won’t rest until I have made this person pay.’

Geppert said he was ‘crushed’ and ‘if I could give my life for you to have yours back I would do so without thinking twice’.

‘You’re still my blood and I promise I won’t rest until I have made this person pay!’, he wrote. 

Geppert said the brothers were older and younger versions of each other who took after their father who he said was their biggest role model. 

Gold Coast police are aware of his vengeful post and have warned Geppert not to take matters in to his own hands. 

He has since frequented Frascott Park multiple times since his brother’s passing, paying tribute and leaving flowers at the spot where he died.
