The body of Eurydice Dixon, 22, was found at a football field in Melbourne early on Wednesday, only hours after she had performed a gig at a city bar.
Eurydice Dixon had a promising comedy career.
The 22-year-old, who was allegedly raped and murdered, had sent a text to her boyfriend before her death, reading: 'I'm home nearly safe'.
The Highlander Bar later posted a statement in response to what happened.
Triple J's Gen Fricker has penned a poignant speech on the topic, about Eurydice's tragic death, assault and what we NEED to do about it.
Her friends and members of the Melbourne comedy community have paid tribute to the 22-year-old since news of her death broke, and hundreds have sent their support and love for her family. She will be remembered fondly and sadly missed.
A 19-year-old man, Jaymes Todd, handed himself to police on Wednesday and was charged with her rape and murder. He won't appear in court again until October.

"My message is that people need to be aware of their own personal security and just be mindful of their surroundings", Detective Inspector Stamper told the community.
"Instead ... teach men that they don't have more of a right to a woman's body than she does to her life". "There's so much advice, so many rules, around what she should do and what she shouldn't". "An important and amusing voice has been extinguished", one person wrote. We DO have our fists clenched. "Should we allow murderous rapists and poverty to ensure we're locked inside our entire lives?"
Victoria Premier, Daniel Andrews, has been vocal about violence against women since before he was elected in 2014.
"She needs to be on the phone so that if any potential person is going to do her wrong, that person knows she has a lifeline to somebody else". She was using it. Who taught me to keep my eyes down when I walk past a group of men at night when I'm by myself? Looking out for herself.
"We provide safety information, recognising that responsibility for crimes always rests with the offenders who commit them".
"Don't go out at night, don't walk alone, don't wear short skirts, don't draw attention to yourself, don't find yourself near unusual men".
She said despite receiving the script for A Date with Death weeks before the performance, "due to our schedules clashing we only met on day of the show". But the message sparked a strong response from women who say they are exhausted of being blamed for the unsafe situations they find themselves in.
