Rrie Wright fell from the 14th floor of the Avalon apartment complex in Surfers Paradise last Friday.

Police in Queensland say the 26-year-old's death is being treated as suspicious until proved otherwise.

Ms Wright was in the apartment of a 28-year-old man she was reported to have met on a dating website.

Her younger sister, Reza Wright, says the loss of her sister is difficult because she doesn't know what happened in her last hours.

She says her sister was a beautiful woman and is urging anyone who has information to come forward.

Witnesses have told police a disturbance was heard inside the apartment before the balcony fall in the early hours of the morning, but it was empty when officers arrived.
