A crime scene photograph of Jill Meagher, the Irish woman raped and murdered in Melbourne, was shown at a fund raising night for the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
Victorian Police apologised saying it was an unfortunate error of judgement.
And the Premier Denis Napthine said: “When I heard about this yesterday afternoon I was sickened, I was shocked and immediately my heart went out to the Meagher family.”
The photograph was shown during a talk by Detective Senior Sergeant Ron Iddles about homicide investigations.

Meagher worked at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
