    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

    Confirmation that this is a murder investigation:

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

    I pray this is not another Eunji Ban situation :facepalm:

    Thought I was going nuts. I was sure I saw 5 pieces of jewellery. So went lookingand there it was on a link on the first post. So she has 5 pieces of destinctive jewellery.
    Someone who knows her would surely recognise these pieces. MOO

    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 :facepalm:

    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?!:please:

    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.

    Still nobody has come forward to identify the poor girl :facepalm:

    I'm seriously hoping that's because she is from overseas and hasn't been here long, rather than being indicative of nobody caring about her.:please:

    watching the news and they mentioned this story so sad they they haven't identified her yet. The jewelry hopefully will trigger someones memory. The jewelry looks like the silver jewelry you get on market stalls or shows. so i think it would be more the combination that could help. just my 2 cents
