Jill Meagher, a 29-year-old who moved from Ireland to Melbourne three years ago disappeared while walking home from a bar in Brunswick.
Jill had left Bar Etiquette on Sydney Road at 1.33am (AEST) Saturday 22nd September after drinking with ABC colleagues. She never completed the five-minute walk to the flat she shares with her husband, Thomas.
In the CCTV footage, Jill could be seen speaking with the man in the blue hoodie outside a bridal dress store. In the footage, the man in the hoodie walks back and forth, speaks briefly to Jill, and then walks off ahead of her.
She then speaks to her brother on her mobile for two minutes, walks out of view of the camera.
With the extensive Media reports about her disappearance across Melbourne, we watched the story of Jill Meagher unfold with a conclusion that has rocked Melbournians.
The one positive outcome is that her killer Adrian Ernest Bayley was identified by the CCTV footage and her family can today say goodbye to her in a private funeral.
We hope the government will follow through with their plans to install more CCTV cameras around the city of Melbourne to ensure our streets are safe, as we see how it can provide peace of mind and assist the police in getting criminals off our streets every day.

We are still wondering if the Alarm Response Policy will be introduced here in Victoria. The Alarm Response Policy was introduced over 12 months ago in NSW, whereby police required alarm verification via ‘visual or remote video’ alarm verification. The Alarm Response Policy over the past 12 months has reduced the number of alarms reported to police by 65%, equating to over 58,000 incidents. Of the 28,000 alarms police did respond to only 6% were actually confirmed as genuine. As a result the NSW Police Force will be enforcing a $200 false alarm fine for non genuine-false alarms in an aim to provide a more effective response to genuine alarms.
Under Section 209 of the Police Act the Commissioner of Police to charge a fee of $200, where Police respond to a false alarm on more then one occasion within any 28 day period where the premise is a building. Although the policy has not been rolled out in Victoria, we find that police are more likely to attend when the alarm has been verified. This highlights the need for customers to consider implementing regular maintenance of their alarm systems to ensure that alarms operate effectively and installing CCTV cameras or new technology such as Videofied which will provide our A1 Graded Monitoring Centre with verification of the alarm and ensure that the police will attend on request.
One in five people (21 percent) did not warn their neighbours that a thief was at work in their area after being burgled. People in New South Wales were most likely to warn their neighbours and Victorians least likely.
Almost half of Australians do not investigate or call the police when they hear a home alarm, so why have a home alarm? Your home alarm is a deterrent for burglars and statistics show that burglars are less likely to target a home with an alarm system installed. For your home alarm to work most effectively, we can program your alarm to notify our A1 grade, alarm monitoring control room. The monitoring control room has a list of contacts to notify on activation of your alarm and can dispatch a patrol on your instructions. Having your home alarm monitored 24 hours will give you peace of mind for as little as $1 per day. Click here to find out more
