Man,19, charged with comedian's rape and murder

There was also frustration at the police's advocacy for women displaying situational awareness and to carry a phone, especially since Eurydice had texted her friend saying she was nearly home just minutes before her alleged rape and death.

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. "And it's going to be hard to achieve that, really", she said.

Heartwarming tributes for the young woman continue to flow following her tragic alleged rape and murder this week.

A GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for her family had raised $10,000 at the time of publication. She thought she was safe. She often drew upon those themes in the comedy she performed.

"We were all very sure that as a performer she had the potential to really be very successful".

Comedian Julia Morris described Dixon as an "important and amusing voice" on Twitter, saying she was "absolutely shattered" to hear of her death.

Ms Dixon's death has also seen prominent comedians offer their condolences to her family and to those affected in the comedy circuit.

With many in Melbourne and around Australia already deeply distressed by the news a woman had lost her life, her identification by police has brought the tragedy even closer to home for many in the entertainment industry.

Meanwhile, Melbourne's comic community has rallied in tribute to Ms Dixon, with comedian Chris Franklin posting on social media that a memorial will be held at the Highlander Bar, where she performed the night she was killed.

"The entire staff are shattered and heartbroken", they said. "Our heart goes out to her family, the comedy community and everyone else who knew and loved her".

Jason Todd told The Age on Friday his family was stunned when told the 19-year-old had been charged with the rape and murder of aspiring comedian Eurydice Dixon.
