Dixon's friends and family have spoken out about her “engaging” and "fun" personality, as well as describing her troubling childhood that forced her to grow up far too son.

Ms Dixon’s murder was met by an outpouring of grief in Victoria. A vigil held at Princes Park was attended by more than 10,000 people.
