Smail Ayad, 29, had told other backpackers he and Ayliffe-Chung were deeply in love and married – but his alleged obsession turned sour after hearing she posed for revealing photos and did not reciprocate his feelings.
Meanwhile police are investigating if the French backpacker suspected of stabbing Brit Mia Ayliffe-Chung to death had a romantic obsession with the 21-year-old.

Mia was killed in a brutal attack at a backpackers’ hostel in Queensland, Australia last night, while three other residents of the hostel, all male, were injured.

He was also a champion kickboxer who had trained in Thailand, and he injured two officers during his detainment, local media reported. Police said they were still trying to find out what the Frenchman had been doing in Australia since his arrival, but he was not known to police before the attack.
Mia, 21, had recently described how she was living her “dream” travelling through parts of Africa and Asia before settling to work as a barmaid on the Gold Coast.
She was knifed in a frenzied attack in front of 30 horrified witnesses, while her attacker is alleged to have shouted “Allahu Akbar” during the ordeal.

Only weeks ago, the backpacker posted on Facebook: “The hardest thing living my dream, missing the important home things. Graduations, people in hospital, funerals and birthdays.”
Her mother responded: “You’ll be back in the blink of an eye, and we’ll all still be doing the same old stuff for the most part. Live your dream and know you’re in all our hearts.”

Trudy Curtis, a close friend to Mia’s mother Rosie, said her long-time pal was “in bits”.
“Mia is Rosie’s only daughter. She is in bits. She hasn’t had a chance to process everything because she’s been getting constant phone calls and people knocking on her doors.
“The authorities won’t give her any information because they aren’t 100 per cent sure what happened. I think Rosie is going to fly out there.
“She has her partner with her who is supporting her and police liaison officers have been with her all day. Mia was a beautiful person inside and out. I’m so shocked.”

Mia Ayliffe-Chung1.jpgEmbarking on life’s journey The 21-year-old Mia was killed in front of about 30 witnesses, by a maniac she had only known for a few days and had no desire in dating

Mia, also known as Mimi, from Derbyshire, UK  up until a few weeks ago, had been dating an Australian man, Jamison Stead.  She had just graduated from Buxton College last year after studying child care and was taking time off to travel after completing her studies. She had already visited Morocco, Turkey, India and Thailand before leaving for Australia, where she had planned to spend the next year.
Mia’s older sister Natasha who had just learnt of her death said: “I still don’t know the full details of what happened. I wouldn’t know what to say. I’m still in shock.”
Zoe Atkinson, in a  tribute to her friend described Mia as a “fun” and “live wire” pal.
“Mia was the most fun live wire you could ever come across. There was never a dull moment with her.
“Her passion was so alive you could feel it when around her. She always stood up for what she felt was right. She had huge amounts of empathy and loved very strongly.

“I am proud that she lived her dreams and that’s all I ever wanted for her.”
Friends and relatives of several other people also injured during the attack commented on the incident.
Mia’s Friend and coworker Scott Ackland said: “It is under such terrible circumstances that this has happened to such an amazing person.

“Our condolences go out to all of her family and friends. We are also thankful Chris Porter, our other co worker, was able to escape with minimal injuries and our thoughts are with the other man fighting for his life.”
Porter had to leap from a second storey window to escape the knifeman’s frenzied attack. He awoke on the top bunk above the bed of  Mia Ayliffe-Chung who was being stabbed by their roommate of a few days, repeatedly in the face.  Porter escaped with two fractured ankles, Ayad still chasing him down the road with the knife. He had to flagged down a passing motorist and killer  tried to smash through the car window.
Olivia Jackson, sister to another one of the stab victims 23-year-old Tom Jackson,  said: “We can’t really comment too much at the minute.
“Tom hasn’t been in a position to talk to us because he’s still in a critical condition in hospital. We can’t divulge too much else right now.”

A man who lives across the road from the hostel said he heard “blood curdling screams” during the attack.
“It’s a very quiet town. We heard the screams, I was terrified, it wasn’t very pleasant at all. I’ll never forget it.

“A sleepy little town like this, you don’t expect things like that to happen.”
In a press conference, deputy police commissioner Steve Gollschewski said the investigation was in its early stages and all motivations were being considered.
He said: “Initial inquiries indicate that comments which may be construed as being of an extremist nature were made by the alleged offender.
“It is alleged that the suspect used the phrase ‘Allahu Akbar’ during the attack and when arrested by police.”
Detective Superintendent Ray Rohweder from the Queensland Police Service said officers were confronted with a “terrible scene” when they arrived.
