Comedian raped and murdered on way home from gig

Dixon's body was found in Princess Park, Carlton North, just hours after walking home from a successful comedy gig at the Highlander Bar, Tuesday night.

Ms Bridger-Darling said the response also reflects wider concerns about violence against women, victim blaming and public safety. Eurydice had just performed a stand-up gig in the CBD.

16/6/18 Local football players from St Bernards and Melbourne University Blacks offered a minutes silence at a temporary memorial for Eurydice Dixon, after finishing their match at Princes Park.

Through her own tears, Wilkinson spoke of the disparity in advice given to women compared to men in order to keep themselves safe.

News organisations reported the 19-year-old male suspect has autism and people were quick to reject that as any kind of defence.

Greg Fleet said: 'Devastated to hear about Eurydice Dixon. "What is happening in this country when a woman can't walk home on her own at night, can't get home safely at night". Our comedy community is like a family & this news is beyond heart breaking.

"A lot of us live around here and it's pretty simple - it is just not good enough from men in society". Go out with friends at night.


"I would so love to be able to walk through Hyde Park at night, but its something I simply can not risk".

He added: "We'll never change a thing until we do". Authorities said she had been raped and murdered. They also said they would dramatically increase police presence in the park, so they weren't saying the only way to prevent these crimes is for women to be more careful.

Reducing The Project panel to tears, Lisa Wilkinson delivered a powerful message, calling for more to be done to protect women.

. And that's when I saw all of the grief and all of the sadness turn into anger.

Social media reactions were punctuated by exasperated queries as to why police were telling people to be safer, not stressing that men who commit violent crimes will be persecuted to the full extent of the law. So, it's infuriating to be told, "Oh, you need to look out for yourself better and you need to be more aware of the dangers", when I think that women are so, so aware of the dangers.

'I didn't know her, but I'm so sorry that this happened, she had a bright future ahead of her.

Ms Dixon's death sparked a huge wave of tributes online, prompting debate about violence against woman in Australia and evoking memories of the murder of Irish woman Jill Meagher in an adjacent suburb in 2012.
