A fun-loving young woman goes ona 'Girls' Night Out' and disappears
Last Friday evening a vibrant, beautiful woman disappeared in Melbourne. She was 29 years old, was married and worked at the Australian Broadcasting Commission. She and her female colleagues were having a ‘Girls’ Night Out’. As she lived about a kilometer away she decided to walk home — alone. She never arrived.

On the way, while still within the brightly lit CBD area a man who wore a blue hoodie confronted her. She was never seen again. This encounter was captured on security cameras that were positioned in a dress shop. The time was about 1:45 am.

When she failed to arrive home her distressed husband called the police. They did not immediately search for her. In a laneway not far away — they found her handbag. All her credit cards and money hadn’t been taken.

Immediately an intensive search of the area began. No more clues. The footage of her last moments was displayed on the media. People began to fear the worst. Yesterday, a week later, her body was found in a park, a short distance away from a busy road. She had been raped and murdered. The previous day, the man who wore the blue hoodie was identified and he was helping police with their enquiries.

My heart goes out to the grieving family and friends who must be going through hell imagining the horror and pain their loved one must have experienced at this hands of this low-life who took her life away.

It is a chilling story and reminded me of an occasion about ten years ago when I was walking our dog Max a few blocks away from our house. All of a sudden, I found a man in his thirties walking beside me and trying to start up a conversation. He asked if I could walk with him awhile. To be polite, I said ‘yes’. meantime Max was acting strangely; Max was pulling at the lead and barking. Was he trying to tell me that this man was evil and not to be trusted? The guy and I continued to walk shoulder to shoulder down the street to the football ground where he asked me to wait for him while he used the toilets.

Immediately I had a gut feeling that something wasn’t right. I yelled out:’ Sorry I can’t stay, I’ve got to get back home.' It was just as well I had Max with me. Had I been walking alone I too, may have been abducted and the worst could have happened.
