    Australia - Sophie Collombet, 21, found dead in Kurilpa Park, Brisbane, 27 March 2014

    March 29, 2014

    DETECTIVES were last night trying to identify a woman *believed murdered in a Brisbane park, her body found near the inner-city William Jolly Bridge.

    Police spent hours searching for a weapon after a man found the woman in a rotunda in Kurilpa Park in South Brisbane about 6am yesterday, 30m from the bridge.

    They said she was a victim of a serious assault

    She is described as aged in her teens to early 20s, with a slim build, about 165cm in height, with an olive complexion and dark hair. The woman was wearing a silver bracelet on her right wrist.

    It was not known if the woman was sexually assaulted, and detectives were appealing for people who saw anything in the area from the previous night to contact police

    Detectives from Dutton Park Criminal Investigation Branch and Homicide Investigation Unit are continuing to investigate the suspicious death of a woman at South Brisbane today.

    Around 6am police were called to Kurilpa Park where the body of a woman was located by a passer-by in a rotunda near the William Jolly Bridge.

    Police are still working to establish the identity of the woman who is described as being possibly aged in her teens to early 20s, approximately 165cm tall with a slim build, olive complexion and dark hair.

    She was wearing a silver bracelet on her right wrist.

    The park remains a crime scene this afternoon while police continue to conduct forensic examinations.

    Anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area overnight or has any other information in relation to her identity is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.

    Anyone with information which could assist with this matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au 24hrs a day.

    He said police were treating the death as suspicious “due to the nature and circumstances in which she was found”........

    He said Kurilpa Park - a known homeless spot - was regularly patrolled by police

    It doesn't sound like the quietest park - hopefully somebody saw something and comes forward to LE

    A bit more info on this mysterious case:

    Images of jewellery worn by a murdered woman whose body was found in a busy Brisbane park have been released by police as they try to establish her identify.........

    On Saturday, they released photos of a gold ring with three diamonds, a silver skull ring, another silver ring with a pattern of opposing L shaped sections cut from the metal, and a silver chain bracelet.

    Confirmation that this is a murder investigation:

    "A post-mortem has been carried out this morning which has revealed that the deceased female from Kurilpa Park was assaulted and has suffered significant injuries," he said.

    "And as such we are treating yesterday's discovery as a murder investigation."

    It seems sad to me that she hasn't been identified by anybody yet. Let's hope that she is soon.

    So LE are speculating that she might be from overseas.

    I pray this is not another Eunji Ban situation

    Detectives told The Courier-Mail they were canvassing backpacker and student accommodation to try to identify the woman, who was aged in her teens or early 20s.

    Police say there is no indication she was homeless despite public speculation, and they were investigating if the woman was an overseas student or backpacker.

    I would not be surprised if this young woman was a backpacker as there are a few backpackers hostels only a few minutes walk from Kurilpa Park. This park is in quite a busy area as it is close to the State Library, the Museum, the Cultural Centre and the Kurilpa Bridge which takes you over to the city.

    Oh, that's just awful

    Her rings are very distinctive - especially the combination eg. the delicate diamond one but also the kind of goth skull. Surely somebody recognises that and then realises who she is?!

    I'm wondering what the origin of that "L" ring is? It's very unusual.....hopefully if it is representative of a certain culture, somebody from that culture sees the photo and can help police.

    No longer much of a clue in these times of ebay and online shopping. :/
