FBI agents probing the murder of a Staten Island mom in Turkey said they don’t believe she was there just to take pictures — and said she hung out with a “criminal element” during the solo trip abroad.

“There are a lot of open questions that need to be answered,” a source familiar with the ongoing case told The Post.

Mother of two Sarai Sierra, 33, was found dead from a ferocious blow to the skull in a seedy area of Istanbul last Saturday after failing to show up for a Jan. 21 flight home to New York.

“The first people she met up with were a criminal element,” the source said of Sierra, who flew to Turkey Jan. 7, then to Amsterdam on Jan. 15 and Munich on Jan. 16 before heading back to Istanbul Jan. 19.

My wife and I were in Istanbul this past fall. It was teeming with tourists, long lines at the popular tourist attractions. My wife commented on different occasions on the number of men that hang out together on the streets of Istanbul. But with the multitude of tourists it blended in to some extent. January, one of the slowest tourist months, a single women would stand out ... no question. She apparently fell in with the wrong people.
