Queensland Police have appealed for public assistance in the search for a man wanted for questioning over the death of a 26-year-old woman whose body was found in a northern Brisbane park last week.

Key points:

  • Police are looking to speak to 34-year-old Bradley Edwards over the death of Ioli Hadjilyra
  • Mr Edwards is described by police as a 190cm tall Indigenous man, with a slim build, black hair and brown eyes
  • Ms Hadjilyra’s body was found in a northern Brisbane park last week

Police have asked anyone who sights 34-year-old Bradley Edwards to immediately call triple zero (000).

They believe Mr Edwards may be able to assist with their investigation of the death of 26-year-old Ioli Hadjilyra, whose body was found in Kalinga Park, in Brisbane’s north, on Wednesday.

At a press conference on Sunday, Detective Senior Sergeant Chris Toohey said police were investigating whether Ms Hadjilyra was seriously assaulted, but could not comment further on the cause of her death.

Police are treating her death as suspicious and a possible homicide.

He said police did not have a fixed address for Mr Edwards, but they believe he currently lives in the inner-north Brisbane suburbs of Fortitude Valley, Nundah and Windsor.

“If Mr Edwards is watching this we ask him to contact police and we’d like to speak to him,” Senior Sergeant Toohey said.

Mr Edwards is described by police as a 190cm tall Indigenous man, with a slim build, black hair and brown eyes.

Police believe attempts were made to disguise the location of Ms Hadjilyra’s body, which was discovered at a garden bed about midday on Wednesday.

Her body was found by council workers conducting routine maintenance underneath rail lines in Kalinga Park. They only saw her body when they were quite close to it.

Police say some of her clothing had been interfered with.

Police say the cause of bruises on her body were yet to be determined.

“We don’t know how Ioli came to be in the park — we don’t know who she was with and we don’t know how she got there,” Detective Inspector Tim Tresize said after her body was discovered last week.

Police were awaiting the results of a post-mortem examination last week but believed she died in the park.
