Are these the racy pictures that made British backpacker Mia Ayliffe-Chung’s alleged killer flip?

Racy photos of murdered British backpacker Mia Ayliffe-Chung have emerged as it was claimed her alleged killer may have flipped when he saw glamour photos she had posed for.

The 21-year-old was murdered at an Australian backpacker’s hostel on Tuesday.

Police are investigating whether she was killed by a French knifeman who was allegedly infatuated with her.

Smail Ayad was said to be obsessed with Mia and even told other guests at the hostel in Queensland they were married, the local Townsville Bulletin reported.

He is said to have told other guests they were ‘deeply in love’ but became outraged when he discovered Ms Aycliffe-Chung had posed for photos and did not share his feelings.
