Man extradited from Thailand over murder

·1-min read

A man has been extradited from Thailand back to Australia over the murder of a Sydney father eight years ago.

Bradley Dillon, 25, was found shot in the inner city suburb of Leichhardt on the evening of August 11, 2014.

NSW Police found the Abbotsford man collapsed on a road and despite attempts by paramedics to revive him he died at the scene.

In 2014, a then 23-year-old man was charged over his murder and has since been sentenced.

Now, police have extradited a man, 33, from Thailand over the murder.

Detectives applied for and were granted an arrest warrant for the man, who had been remanded in prison in Thailand.

The man was handed over to NSW Police and escorted by detectives on a flight from Bangkok, which landed at Sydney International Airport at about 6am on Saturday.

He was taken to Mascot Police Station where he was charged with an outstanding arrest warrant for murder.

"Bradley was a father who was senselessly murdered," Detective Superintendent Danny Doherty said.

"Investigators have continued to work tirelessly to ensure this man faced justice for his alleged involvement in Mr Dillon's murder."

The man will appear at Parramatta Bail Court on Saturday.
