The brother of the woman found in Kalinga Park in Brisbane under suspicious circumstances has spoken out about her & # 39; devastating & # 39; death.
The body of 26-year-old Ioli Hadjilyra was found around 12 noon on Wednesday afternoon by city officials in a garden under a railway viaduct in a park in Brisbane.
Mrs. Hadjilyra & elder brother Alexander-Michael Hadjilyra said he has a broken heart that his sister died so far away from her two brothers and sister who all live in Cyprus.
& # 39; If I had the chance to tell her, I would tell her what I always tell her, and that is to take care of your life & # 39 ;, he told the Brisbane Times.
& # 39; She was a kind soul, only she strayed. & # 39;

Hadjilyra said his father – who lives in Brisbane – called him on Thursday and told him the police had told him the news around midnight.
& # 39; My father told me not to say anything (my other brothers and sisters), he said, & # 39; don't tell anyone & # 39 ;. I was the first person to call because I'm the oldest, but now I'm sure they know, "he said.
Hadjilyra lost contact with Ioli in 2016 when she moved back to Brisbane with her father.
The last time the brothers and sisters spoke was about a week ago, when Mrs. Hadjilyra told her brother that she wanted to leave Australia and go back to Cyprus.
Hadjilyra said he wanted to remember his sister for her & # 39; kind soul & # 39; and did not want to focus on the & # 39; negative points & # 39; of her life.
She was found without a wallet, ID or telephone and & # 39; it seems that some of her clothes, her items of clothing have been disturbed and removed & # 39;
An insider said the Daily Mail Australia police treat death as a murder investigation
A source told Daily Mail Australia Friday that police treat death as a murder investigation.
An official statement is expected on Friday.
The last time Mrs. Hadjilyra spoke to her brother was about a week ago when she said she wanted to leave Australia and move back to Cyprus.
Mrs. Hadjilyra is remembered as a talented sketch artist and loving sister to her three brothers and sisters, all of whom currently live in their hometown of Cyprus, in Greece.
Detective inspector Tim Trezise said attempts had been made to hide her body in the bushes.
She was found without a wallet, ID or telephone and & # 39; it seems that some of her clothing, her garments, have been disrupted and removed & # 39 ;.
Investigators have yet to reveal the results of an autopsy and said it was too early to determine if she had been sexually abused.
They also still don't know what Mrs. Hadjilyra was doing in the park on Wednesday, and believe she might have been there one night before her body was finally discovered.
A series of her sketches were found scattered around her body.
The police are still assessing whether they think they had worked on the pieces at the moments prior to her death or whether they had fallen afterwards.
The Australian-Cypriot double citizen was described by Inspector Trezise as a & # 39; popular young lady & # 39 ;.
The police are looking for the place where the body of 26-year-old Wednesday was found
