A women's safety group has added to the mass of floral tributes for tragic PCSO Julia James.
Reclaim These Streets Deal left flowers and decorated pebbles at the memorial to her at Market Place, Aylesham.
The group also left a written message saying: "with heartfelt condolences from the women of Reclaim These Streets Deal. RIP Julia."
Susab Carkyke, from the group, said: "We have left flowers at the memorial for Julia James on behalf of our campaign to keep women safe and prevent violence.
"We are shocked and very disturbed by this second murder case connected to this part of Kent, especially as Julia was known to many people in Deal.
"There is small number of decorated stones from Sarah Everard's memorial in Deal as we see these cases linked to violence against women."
Mrs James, 53, was found dead just outside Ackholt Wood, Snowdown, on April 27.
She was a few hundred metres from her home, had been alone walking her dog, and was found to have died from head injuries.
A man was arrested in connection with the investigation on Friday and today (Monday) remains in custody, questioned by detectives.
Reclaim These Streets was nationally set up after the previous murder case in which the victim, Sarah Everard, was again walking alone.
Both cases led to mass outpourings of public sympathy and extensive and visible police activity in the East Kent area.
Deal became a main focus in the Everard case after serving Metropolitan Police officer Wayne Couzens , 48. was arrested at his home in the town's Freemen's Way.
He is now in custody, charged with kidnap and murder, and is due to re-appear in court in July.
Later in March a crowdfunding page was set up involving both Reclaim These Streets and Rosa, the charity for women and girls.
