Eric Newman returned to the shopping center where his sister, 28-year-old Josephine Butler, was found Tuesday morning.
"She was such a beautiful person, she was just so happy and bubbly and just very animated," Newman told FOX5. "I don't know how anybody could do that, I don't understand how they could do that to somebody."
While cleaning his computer repair store Jean Hawk spotted a duffle bag in the dumpster.
"I didn't know what was in the duffle bag - I found it, so I jumped in there to see what was in there and I cut it open and I found a body," Hawk told FOX5.
Newman said his sister was last seen at the Longhorn Casino on Boulder Highway near Harmon Sunday night. He's not sure how her body ended up 10 miles north of there.
"I just think she was at the wrong place at the wrong time," Newman told FOX5.
Newman said Butler had a lump on her head and a bruise on her cheek, but an official cause of death is still under investigation.
According to Newman, the coroner's office suggested it could have been an overdose, but he doesn't believe it.
"I know for a fact and everybody that knows her knows that she doesn't do those kinds of drugs," Newman said.
Although police won't say it yet, Newman said his sister was murdered and someone out there has information that can help.
"We just want to know any kind of information or any kind of help to get this guy caught," Newman said.
Newman said his sister leaves behind a 7-year-old daughter.
The family has set up the Josephine Lynn Butler Memorial Fund, donations can be made at any Bank of America location.
