Woman's Body Found In Garden Bed Near Popular Brisbane Park

A young woman's body has been discovered underneath a railway bridge in Brisbane's inner-north.

Council workers performing routine maintenance work near Kalinga Park at Clayfield discovered the woman's remains just before noon on Wednesday.

The woman, who is believed to be aged somewhere in her 20s, was found a short distance from the Toombul train station.

"At this stage, we don't know the identity of the person, and we don't know the cause of death," Detective Inspector Tim Trezise told reporters.

"Early indications suggest she hasn't been there too long but she certainly could have been there last night. And I assume any number of people have potentially cycled or walked past that location today and perhaps unknowingly the lady had been there the whole time in the garden bed.”

Trezise said there were no obvious signs of injury or foul play, and that the woman was not carrying any forms of identification.

"Obviously though, it's a tragic situation whenever a young person dies," he said.

"She's died in a public park and we are not sure what has led to her being there."

A crime scene has been established at the end of Diggers Drive at Kalinga Park, and police expect to know more once a post-mortem is conducted in coming days.

Police are appealing to any members of the public who may have been in Kalinga Park adjacent to the Toombul train line either this morning or last night, and may have seen anything suspicious. They are urged to contact Hendra police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
