Whoever thinks of that, let alone does it, needs psychiatric help.
Eurydice was on her way home from a performance at the Highlander Bar in the CBD when she was attacked and killed last Wednesday morning. 19-year-old Jaymes Todd was arrested and charged with rape and murder.
Police have seized items left by the vandals and started investigations.
Firefighters, including some who attended the scene upon the discovery of Eurydice’s body, have spent this morning washing and scrubbing the graffiti away before daylight.
