The heartbroken family of an Australian man found dead in his rented Balinese home believed he suffered a heart attack – until they saw the horrific crime scene photos.
Stephen James Richardson, 63, was found lying on a mattress in his rented home in Sanur in a pool of blood with wounds to his right arm, right cheek, and forehead.
In a graphic image sent to the family by police and supplied to Daily Mail Australia, the beloved father can be seen lying stark naked on a blood-soaked blue mattress.
Local police say a shattered bedroom window and broken glass cabinet door are evidence a violent struggle occurred before his ‘unnatural death’.
A knife was also reportedly found at the scene.
