A vile video mocking the murder of British backpacker Grace Millane has been posted online.
Police in New Zealand are probing Instagram posts which brand the 21-year-old “disgusting” and a “horrible human being”.
Grace was choked to death by a Tinder date during sex the night before her 22nd birthday.
He buried her in a suitcase outside Auckland.
The video sparked an outcry in New Zealand and the account was deleted.
Det Insp Scott Beard, of Auckland City Police, said: “The comments made in the video are offensive and would be extremely upsetting to Grace’s friends and family and to the wider community.”
Grace’s killer, who was convicted last month and cannot be named, will be sentenced on February 21.
Following Grace’s death her friend launched an innovative project to support women fleeing domestic violence.
Georgina Tordoff, from Huddersfield, is leading an appeal for handbags filled with toiletry essentials to hand out to women arriving at refuges.
The two became friends while at Lincoln University, where they were both members of the hockey team – and stayed in touch after they left, Examiner Live reports.
She said: “We played hockey together and after uni we’d meet up regularly, especially when I was living in London,” said Georgina, 24.
“Grace was always supporting charities at university. She was one of those friends who was always there for you and would help as much as possible.
“The fact that we are helping so many women escape from such terrible situations feels like we are turning something negative into something positive.
