Tiahleigh Palmer’s foster brother has reportedly been targeted in prison by other inmates.

The Courier Mail reports that Thorburn has been bashed in two separate incidents over the past few days, after prisoners encouraged each other to target him. The incidents resulted in minor injuries.

Thorburn was recently denied bail at Beenleigh Magistrates Court last week. It was alleged that he had incestuous sex with his foster sister and that he feared she was pregnant before her murder last year.
