The Murder of Jill Meagher

Read more

Jill Meagher was a 29-year-old woman who was raped and murdered while walking home from Bar Etiquette in Brunswick, Victoria, in the early hours of the Saturday 22nd of September, 2012.

Jill was initially considered a missing person when she didn’t return home to her husband, Tom Meagher. The pair, who were originally from Ireland, lived in an apartment in Lux Way, Brunswick. It soon became a murder investigation when Jill’s handbag was discovered in an alleyway not far from home near where she’d last been seen, and CCTV footage from the local Duchess Boutique clothing store showed Jill talking with a man wearing a blue hoodie.

Join Shaun and Chloe as they discuss the details of a crime that stunned Australia. We talk about Jill, who she was, and what she meant to so many people, the police investigation, and the violent criminal who took her life: Adrian Ernest Bayley.

35 - The murder of Jill Meagher & the serial sex crimes of Adrian Bayley

Read more
On Friday the 22nd September 2012, Jill Meagher left work after a long week and went out for a night on the town in her adopted home of Melbourne, Australia. She spent the evening in a number of bars and pubs with work friends.

But that night, there was a predator out on the streets too. One who had spent nearly a decade in prison for violent assaults and rape, and was still on parole and bail. Because of him, Jill would never make it home that night.

Jill Meagher

Jill Meagher was a 29 year old Irish woman living in Melbourne with her husband, Tom. She was a bright, funny, loving young woman, who worked for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. On the 21st of September 2012, Jill went to a bar on Sydney Road in Brunswick with some colleagues. She left around 1:30am, to walk the few blocks back to her home and her husband.

She never made it home. When her husband awoke to find her missing, he immediately contacted the police.

What followed was a fast and efficient investigation, helped along by the discovery of CCTV footage featuring Jill and a man in a blue sweatshirt on Sydney Road. The man in the blue sweatshirt was quickly identified as Adrian Ernest Bayley, a man who was on parole after serving time for a series of rapes.

In this episode, we discuss Adrian Ernest Bayley’s shocking criminal history, the impact that Jill’s death has had on the Australian public, and also, Ellen cries. A lot.

Jill Meagher was a young woman with her whole life ahead of her. The impact her violent and brutal murder had on her family and her husband Tom cannot be overstated. This case is one of the most well-known in Australia, and it inspired a wave of grief and anger in the Australian public. Thousands of people took to the streets to Reclaim the Night after Jill's murder. Jill's death demonstrated once again to Australian women that even if you do everything right, even if you're only a few blocks away from your house, even if you're talking to someone on the phone, you aren't safe. The community was enraged that someone with such a disturbing and violent criminal past could be released from prison, especially considering the miniscule sentence Bayley was served with for his past crimes.

Jill’s husband Tom continues to speak out about violence against women and toxic masculinity. You can read his amazing article, The Danger of the Monster Myth, on the White Ribbon Ireland’s blog here https://whiteribbonblog.com/2014/04/17/the-danger-of-the-monster-myth/

Jill Meagher’s Last Day

Read more

29-year old Jill Meagher was going about her daily life on September 22, 2012 when a man with a lengthy criminal record took it all away from her. That night, she had gone out with some friends after work for drinks. On the short walk back to her apartment, she encountered serial rapist Adrian Bayley.

CCTV would capture Bayley approaching Jill on the street at 1:40am. She had her mobile phone in her hand. His face was obscured by the blue hoodie he was wearing. When Jill didn’t make it home that night, her husband began to search for her, eventually contacting the police. She was officially a missing person at that point, but soon the awful truth would become clear: Jill had been brutally assaulted and murdered by a repeat offender out on parole.

On top of the horror of Jill Meagher’s rape and murder at the hands of Adrian Bayley, one other disturbing fact was exposed: the state’s parole system was broken. How could a man found guilty of 20 rapes in a 23-year time span be allowed to roam the streets of Melbourne’s suburbs after smashing the jaw of another man while on parole?

At the time of Jill’s murder, Bayley was on parole after serving eight years in jail for 16 counts of rape against five women. He had already served time before for rapes committed from the time he was just 18. It made the tragedy of Jill’s murder even more senseless.

At the quiet end today, we’re talking about a beautiful person whose life was violently taken by an evil, repeat offender. Jill spent her last day doing what many of us do—working in a job she loved, enjoying a few drinks in the company of friends, and making her way home on a well-traveled street just blocks from her home. So, what went wrong?
