Australia is currently mourning the loss of one of the country’s up-and-coming comedians after Eurydice Dixon, 22, was murdered earlier this week.
Her body was found in the early hours of Wednesday morning on a soccer pitch in a Melbourne park, where it is understood that she was attacked just several hundred metres away from her home.
Eurydice had finished a gig on Tuesday night before walking home.
It has since been revealed that the final message she sent from her phone was to a friend, moments before Eurydice should have arrived.
It read: “I’m almost home safe, HBU?”
However, Eurydice never made it home.
Jaymes Todd, 19, from Broadmeadows in Melbourne, has since come forward to police and admitted to allegedly raping and killing the comedian.
This Morning on 2DayFM Breakfast, Em Rusciano opened up about the tragic event.
Em has been part of the comedy family for years, and shared a powerful message for all women in the wake of this terrible tragedy - namely, that society should not victim-blame.
