I think it has affected so many people for so many reasons of which I will only mention a few:
She was a young women and so many of us are a similar age to Jill so it really "hits home" that it could have been me or a loved one.
She was only several hundred meters from home, she should have been safe.
She didn't appear intoxicated, some people feel that you are more of a target if you are staggering or obviously appear drunk
It happened in a "nice" area
It was busy at the time it happened and on a busy road not a dark alley
As mums it shakes us to our very core that our children could be left without their mum.

I think for me it's because she was just living her life and it's been so rudely and horribly taken from her. In a second. And she was doing something we all do, enjoying a night out with friends. So ordinary and normal.
I felt the same about Allison Baden Clay, although that was probably because I had met her back in the day, was familiar with her road, she had three girls and so do I etc etc

I think it has shaken people up soo much because it was in the media. What about the females/males we dont hear about? What about the people who dont report their assault to the authorities? Like every horrible story of females being abducted, raped, chased, tormented, it will make women wary...for a while.

In my case my DD walks the streets of melbourne alone most nights. She works the late shift and needs to get home.

Also because she was missing for all those days - everyone hoping she would be found, looking at photos of her in the papers, getting to know her story and her family and watching for news.
Seeing the footage just before it happened, watching the investigation unfold - it becomes real. It was like an episode of Law and Order SVU, except it was real life.

A phone is not much use for defending one's self.
Doesn't look as if she stood a chance.
