A man charged with vandalising the memorial of murdered comedian Eurydice Dixon said he did it as “an attack on feminism”.

Ms Dixon was allegedly raped and murdered while walking home through a park home last month.

Andrew Nolch told The Age he “planned on getting caught” when he allegedly spray-painted a lewd symbol on Ms Dixon’s memorial the night before a vigil was held for the 22-year-old.

“Mr Nolch repeatedly cited the discredited theory that vaccines caused autism,” The Age said, adding he said it was “worth causing hurt to get his message across”.

Mr Nolch, who said he was 29, although police said he was 31, describes himself as an independent Scientologist and former comedian.

Ms Dixon was an emerging comedian, and her friends said Mr Nolch was known to them.

He previously hosted a comedy show and a podcast about conspiracy theories and Scientology

He said he is no longer perusing stand-up because his anti-vaccination stance was not welcomed in comedic circles.

Mr Nolch was arrested last month over the vandalism and has been granted bail.

He is expected to appear in court next month.

Jaymes Todd, 19, has been charged with Ms Dixon’s rape and murder.
