The brother of a teacher who is believed to have been murdered in Bali said his family were "still in the dark" about what happened.

Anne-Marie Drozdz, 49, from Hinckley, was found dead in the villa where she was staying in Ubud, in May.

The Jakarta Post reported she was discovered with multiple injuries to her body and a cloth covering her face.

Gregory Drozdz said it had been a "terrible nightmare" and was desperate for answers.

'Put up a fight'

He said: "Six weeks on and we're still in the dark... we've had information come to us from different sources, one official, the Foreign Office, and the unofficial, Anne-Marie's friends, but also the internet.

"We know my sister was involved in a struggle and put up a fight, but we don't know whether she was in the villa when the alleged assailant broke in, or whether she came back and found him there."

A man arrested in connection with Ms Drozdz's death remains in police custody.

A police spokesman had told the AFP news agency that Ms Drozdz was found by the owner of the villa lying dead on the floor with a black cloth over her face.

He said: "The door was damaged and there were dried up pools of blood on the floor."

The Foreign Office said it was providing consular assistance to Mr Drozdz and his family.

Ms Drozdz was on holiday in Bali following a five-year teaching contract in Vietnam, having previously taught in Namibia, Colombia, Vietnam and Turkey over the last 14 years.
