Eurydice Dixon was a rising Aussie comedian who was murdered in Australia this Tuesday night. Her body was found on a soccer field around 2.40 a.m. on Wednesday. This has brought all sorts of outrage and protests in the nation and has sparked a bigger conversation about violence against women in Australia. A report by the Australian government suggests that one if five women and one in twenty men have experience sexual violence and threats since the age of 15. The Human Rights Commission of Australia has also remarked of the “disturbingly high rate of violence against women” in the country.
Dixon was not widely known but she was a rising comedian and remembered as a talented comedian at the start of her career. She was aged 22 when she was murdered. This death has evoked the Australian people of the murder of Jill Meagher in 2012, which has prompted a march involving 30,000 people. A man named James Todd, aged 19, handed himself to the Police on Wednesday and was charged with rape and murder.

Eurydice Dixon Death
Her great uncle Eric Dixon told that the tragic event was a stark reality.
Dixon was in high spirits following the performance of a new comedy routine at the CBD’s Highlander Bar on Tuesday night. She has finished the gig with her partner of four months, Tony Magnuson, and had left the venue around 10.40 p.m. and was walking back home. “She was happy and content. She gave me a hug, blew me a kiss and said she was going for a walk,” Mr Magnuson told Fairfax Media of his final moments with Ms Dixon before they parted ways at Flinders Street Station. “I’m almost home safe, HBU [how about you],” she wrote to him on Facebook just after midnight. But Ms Dixon never made it.
This was her last performance.
