Family's desperate plea after 28-year-old Sydney man's mysterious Bali death

An investigation into the man's sudden death is reportedly underway after he was found on a Bali road.

A family are pleading for answers after a Sydney real estate agent was found dead on a Bali road while on holiday with a friend.

Charlie Bradley travelled to the popular tourist spot on Thursday with a friend to attend a music festival, his heartbroken sister Beth Bradley has revealed. But the trip took a tragic turn when the 28-year-old UK citizen — who moved to Adelaide with his family in 2013 — was found unresponsive in front of a medical clinic in North Kuta on Sunday, local police told 9 News.

“It breaks my heart to share with you all the death of my brother Charlie,” Ms Bradley confirmed in a tribute on Facebook on Monday. “This shocking news has rocked our family entirely, Charlie was loved by so many… let this be a reminder to you all that life is too short, and hug those closest to you tightly.”

Family’s desperate search for answers

Mr Bradley’s devastated loved ones are now searching for answers about his mysterious death. The 28-year-old was a fit and healthy boxing instructor, his sister said, who had moved to Sydney in recent years for work.

Just hours before his injured body was discovered, Mr Bradley posted a final social media post — a clip of a big crowd at a busy beach club and people on the dance floor.

Ms Bradley told 10 News First he left the venue in a taxi around midnight, but was pronounced dead in hospital three hours later.

“There’s a three-hour gap between Charlie leaving the venue, which was only 15 minutes from where he was staying,” an emotional Ms Bradley said. “Charlie’s body was reported and found only two mins away from the villa that he staying in… three hours later.”

She told the publication the “only other details” the family have are that a woman called the police and “had a video supposedly of Charlie rolling around on the ground and banging his head.” “Please help us find an answer. Someone out there knows more than we do,” she pleaded online following the interview.

Tributes flow for boxing instructor

The family, who admitted they don’t know how significant Mr Bradley’s wounds are and have yet to see his body, are now working with the British Embassy to have his remains returned to Adelaide.

A GoFundMe page has been launched to help repatriate Mr Bradley and has so far raised more than $39,000.

“He had the biggest heart and personality and everyone who had the fortune of meeting him loved him,” the fundraiser’s organiser Beverley Page wrote. “His contagious smile, good looks and charm were only a few of his many qualities and he will be terribly missed by so many.”

A friend from the UK has also paid tribute to the real estate agent online, urging others to “never take friends or the people we love for granted”. “It was only last week we were speaking and now to hear the news that you have passed away…god bless your soul brother,” he said.

Local police have launched an investigation into his death, 9 News reports.
