The agency said Turkish Airlines is transporting the body for free.

The 33-year-old mother of two was found dead 12 days after she went missing in Istanbul. Police said she was killed by a blow to the head and are still trying to find her attacker or attackers.

Her family said Sierra was on her first trip abroad pursuing a newfound hobby of photography.
