Vigil To Be Held For Murdered Comedian Eurydice Dixon

19 June 2018

An up-and-coming young comedian was raped and murdered while she walked home from a stand-up gig in Australia - sparking a nationwide outcry over violence against women, according to reports Friday.

"Eurydice's immediate family very much appreciate the community support shown for Eurydice and the positive coverage about her", he told 7News.

"In 1996 I was 22-years-old and I lived in North Carlton and I was at that stage of the career that she was at - you do stand up gigs all over town and you're making no money out of it and you do it 'cause you love it and you love the idea of making people laugh for a living".

A man, 19, has been charged by police.

Up-and-coming Australian comic, Eurydice Dixon performed her last set at the Highlander Tuesday evening. We know how to be vigilant - we've spent our entire lives being vigilant.

Dixon's death and public reaction strongly echoes the horrific rape and murder of Gill Meagher, a 29-year-old Irish woman living in Melbourne who was killed when walking home in the early hours of September 22, 2012. Magnuson told The Age newspaper, "She gave me a hug, blew me a kiss and said she was going for a walk".

The scene follows the victim, the murderer and the Grim Reaper, played by Dixon, the woman and another man known as Death.

Ms Douglas said the Hyde Park location was chosen because while it was lovely, the park held a very similar reputation to the Princes Park location where Ms Dixon was found.

Vigils were held in her honor for many months following her death. At a press conference on Thursday, Superintendent David Clayton urged women to "be aware of their own personal security". "It's really, really, really wrong", she said.

"RIP dear girl and may the rest of us mourn this awful loss and then STEP THE F- UP to stop this terrorism on women". Women don't need to be told to stay vigilant. I've seen all of the women I know try and approach this problem, of women being assaulted and women being attacked in the streets, and figure out how to better protect ourselves. I plan out what I would do, say.

"It was a long day but we made it fun, I remember stumbling over lines for half the day and having lunch together". "We would rather have too many calls than too few". I have to walk through two parks.
