Ms Herron, who had no fixed address, was allegedly bashed to death in Royal Park in Parkville on Friday night, before walkers found her body on Saturday morning.

Henry Hammond, 27, was charged with murdering the 25-year-old woman and fronted the Melbourne Magistrates Court Monday morning.

Hammond has previously taken medication to treat those conditions, including an anti-psychotic prescription.

A homeless man has been charged over the death of Courtney Herron, who was brutally murdered in a Melbourne park two days ago.

The police are yet to provide further details about the cause of the woman's death. "Sadly at the moment we still don't know who this female is, and we still don't know the circumstance that brought her to the park or what happened".

Police have said Ms Herron had been struggling with drug addiction and mental health issues and had been couch surfing and sleeping rough.

The 27-year-old nodded when he was told he will be remanded in custody to appear again on September 16.

Victorian police detectives from the homicide squad arrested and interviewed the man on Sunday and charged him overnight with one count of murder.

The officer said he couldn't get into specifics about the current homicide investigation, but spoke more generally about violent attacks by men on women, saying, "the key point I'd make about that is this is about men's behavior, it's not about women's behavior".

"This is not about the way women behave, this is not about where women are at what hour".

"It's very bad ... it's pretty confronting", tennis coach Gabriel Moise said.

A man was seen visiting the spot where her body was found and leaving a bouquet of flowers along with the touching note.

Aiia Maasarwe, 21, suffered a similar fate to Ms Dixon after being attacked on her walk home near La Trobe University on January 15. Her body was discovered in a Chinatown alleyway in Melbourne's CBD on April 24.
