Another Highlander Bar employee, Jaymes Forman, said she was a regular at the bar and performed to packed houses, The Age reported.
‘She was just wonderful, everybody who knew her at the bar would comment on what a lovely and polite person she was. She was quite shy and very reserved, which was very strange because once she got up on stage she’d have the attention of the whole room and they’d all be laughing.’
She recently appeared in a comic sketch titled ‘A Date With Death’ in which she was depicted as a victim of a stabbing murder. ‘Age 35, stabbed and left for dead in an alleyway behind the Victoria Gardens Kmart,’ said an actor playing Death as Ms. Dixon lay motionless on the stage.

Melbourne’s Magistrate Court was told the Victoria Police investigation concerning Mr. Jaymes Todd is as yet progressing and they were still to finish taking statements from witnesses.
Magistrate Andrew McKenna was additionally told by Mr. Jaymes Todd’s legal counselor John Riordan that Mr. Todd has Autism Spectrum Disorder and takes medication.

I am so fucking angry about Eurydice Dixon's rape and murder that all I can think right now is how I wish we could cut off the killer's dick and balls and lock the fucking deadshit up for life, and I mean the rest of his fucking life.

The media need to stop with the reminder that women should ‘be vigilant’ and ‘stay safe’ and instead start telling men to stop fucking raping and murdering. Eurydice Dixon shouldn’t have had to ‘stay vigilant’ while walking home on a Tuesday night.

Men are scared that women will laugh at them
I wanna walk through the park in the dark
Women are scared that men will kill them
I hold my keys
