Ms Baty's funeral is set to be held on Friday at 10am at Gregson and Weight in Buderim, but due to strict COVID-19 restrictions limited numbers will be allowed at the service.

'She never gave up': Friend's heartache after Aysha's death

Investigations into the 31-year-old's brutal death are continuing after her body was found near the Petrie Creek Bridge on Saturday, August 22.

Police said she was found with "abhorrent" injuries.

They said the Buddina woman had been "sleeping rough" under the bridge for two nights after leaving her partner's Woombye home for an unknown reason.

It's understood her distraught partner, who Ms Baty's friends say "worshipped the ground she walked on", had searched for her in the days leading up to her death.

Her brother, Cole Baty, said she should be remembered for the "love and bright light that she was".

Ms Baty's funeral will be livestreamed at gregsonandweight.com.au.
