Police Identify Person Of Interest After Woman’s Body Found In Park

A man's image has been released by police investigating the death of 26-year-old Ioli Hadjilyra, whose body was found in a Brisbane park last week.

The talented sketch artist's death is being treated as a possible homicide after her battered body was found in a garden bed at Kalinga park on Brisbane's northside.

It appears attempts were made to hide Hadjilyra's body and her clothing may have been interfered with before she was discovered by a council worker on Wednesday.

Police have released an image of 34-year-old Bradley Edwards, who is believed to frequent the inner city and north Brisbane areas including Fortitude Valley, Nundah and Windsor.

He is described as Indigenous, 190cm tall, slim build, black hair and brown eyes, and anyone with information about where he is has been warned not to approach him, but to immediately contact police.

Hadjilyra, an Australian-Cypriot dual citizen, was discovered alongside some of her sketches, with police unsure if they were in her possession or if they were dropped.

Detective Inspector Tim Trezise told media on Thursday Hadjilyra lived in South Brisbane - on the opposite side of the city to where she was found.

"That's one of the mysteries at the moment, how she got to Kalinga Park and why she was on that side of town," Det Insp Trezise said.

No personal items like a wallet or phone were found with Hadjilyra which delayed attempts to identify her body, he said, describing her as a popular young lady from a good family with numerous friends.
