Thomas Meagher told media on Friday of his heartbreak after the discovery of the body of his wife Irish woman, Jillian Meagher. Her body was found in a shallow grave in Victoria, Australia:
"I just wanted to say very briefly that despite the fact that this is the worst thing we'll ever go through in our lives, I've been really humbled by the support the Australian public, the tireless efforts of the police, and all the friends and family who've put their lives on hold to help us out. While I really appreciate all the support, I just would like to mention that negative comments on social media may hurt legal proceedings, so please be mindful of that,"
Meagher alongside Jillian’s brother Michael were in court to witness the initial court appearance of Adrian Ernest Bayley, who has been charged with the rape and murder of Jillian Meagher. Meagher disappeared after drinks with colleagues in the early hours of Saturday.
A major investigation was launched when she went missing. Her body was found on Thursday night, buried in a shallow grave.
