Comic Eurydice Dixon mourned in Australia at park where rape, murder occurred

A vigil is to be held in Princes Park in Melbourne, where comedian Eurydice Dixon was murdered earlier this week on her way home from a gig.

"Our comedy community is like a family and this news is beyond heartbreaking".

"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".

He was arrested on Wednesday night after handing himself into authorities after police released images of a man they wanted to speak to about Dixon's death.

The comic had just done a set at Highlander bar in Melbourne - and was blocks from her apartment - when the attacker struck around midnight Tuesday, according to the local paper.

"This is really a similar thing where we always need to make those assessments of our safety when we're going about the community because events like this, whilst rare, can occur". We know how to be vigilant - we've spent our entire lives being vigilant.

He did not apply for bail and will face a court again on 3 October.

Footballers have linked arms in silence around the flowers piling up near where Melbourne comedian Eurydice Dixon was killed.

The swell of public debate following the death of Melbourne woman Eurydice Dixon is continuing to grow, with thousands throwing their support behind a vigil to "reclaim the park" where the body of the 22-year-old was found.

During her walk, Dixon sent a text message to a friend stating she was "almost home safe, [how about you]", The Age newspaper reported.

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

A vigil has also been planned in Princes Park where Ms Dixon was found, with nearly 2000 people already expressing interest already.

Superintendent David Clayton urged people using the area to stay alert.

"Football can be seen as a bit of a man's game so we came over here to show a message that we have to show women respect", St Bernard's captain Owen McIntyre said. "It was a person who made a conscious decision to exercise extreme violence against her", she said. We need to change. I plan out what I would do, say. My walk from the station includes an unlit street. "We would much rather have too many calls than two few".
