The father of the alleged killer who raped and murdered comedian, Eurydice Dixon, has hit back at online trolls who have targeted him since her death.

Jaymes Todd, 19, has been charged with the rape and murder of Ms Dixon, 22, after the alleged attack at Princes Park, in Melbourne, about 2.40am last Wednesday.

Todd’s father, Jason, has now revealed that in the days after the alleged attack he was repeatedly abused on social media, with their taunts leaving him in tears, shares nine msn.

‘Hope you’re proud to have raised a murder and a rapist,’ one troll wrote to Mr Todd.

In response Mr Todd also shared posts from Facebook users who were attacking him online.

‘I’ve also experienced loss… I’ll never get to see my son get married, have children, buy a house… damn, I’ll never be able to hug him again,’ Mr Todd posted on social media.

Mr Todd said the comments were distressing.

‘By the time he gets out, I’ll be dead. And you, Mr Sensitive, decide it’s a good idea to show me how much you care by sending me this,’ he said.

He ended his post using the hashtag #MeToo

Thousands of people have gathered at Princes Park in Melbourne to remember Ms Dixon.

Ms Dixon was on her way home from a gig on June 12 when she was allegedly raped and murdered at the park in Carlton North in inner Melbourne.

  • The poor father needs our pity. He has to come to grips with having a murderer as a son, something none of us would want to experience that’s for sure. Trolls need to back off.


  • What Todd did was inexcusable and he has wasted a lovely young lady’s life. Mourn her loss but don’t blame Todd’s father. He couldn’t have foreseen what his son was going to do.


  • How terrible. It is so sad this young lady was taken away unjustly. It’s also sad for this father to have to live the rest of his life knowing his son is a rapist and murderer. I really feel for all involved.


  • People’s online and troll behaviour is disgusting. This is a terrible and tragic situation, only made moreso by online gutless morons targeting the murderer’s family. The murderer handed himself in. He has been caught. He will serve justice. His family is in no way responsible for his actions and will also be suffering the trauma and tragedy of what has occurred. Faceless trolls. Gutless. I can’t imagine they would spew such vile to someone’s face. Cowards. Gutless. Horrible.


  • What stupidity to blame the parents in this case. Leave them alone. They are grieving for a lot. They have to come to terms with what their own son did (we can’t understand that kind of pain) at the same time they are being judged by the world. In the end we are all responsible for our own actions, not our parents, our teachers, our friends, our neighbours. It’s just up to us and this boy did this without his parents knowledge or consent (obviously). Trolls are just dumb and I’d get off social media if I were the parents. Sad world and obviously no-one gets out of this unscathed. That young man has a lot to answer for.


  • Nobody is responsible for his son’s actions but his son. Why don’t people just leave others alone? I will never understand people, it makes me sad that society is so broken in so many ways.


  • Awful and cruel.
    There is so much hurt and pain and misunderstanding for partners, parents, brothers,sisters and extended family of those who commit a crime.

    • These families suffer too – also unimaginable.


  • Trolls should feel shame! Doing this to anyone is quite insensitive and cruel and accomplishes nothing. Energy needs to be directed towards combating violence and raising awareness and respecting the memory of this young woman.


  • Yeah it’s a bit harsh to attack dad when it’s not his fault.


  • There are no winners in this sad sad event!Unimaginable life long pain, heartache and sorrow for both families!Im not sure how either can ever come back from this!R.I.P Beautifuls soar like an eagle girl!x


  • It would be very hard for the father I imagine.


  • The family didn’t do this, they had no control over what happened and they have their own grief to deal with


  • Leave the father alone.
    Pray for Eurydice family.
    RIP Eurydice.


  • The poor Dad must be hurting so much already. I’m sure he never thought his son would do something like this.


  • It’s strange how people think it’s ok to troll this dad. He’s just the dad, not an accomplice, he’s not in a good place either
