THE HEARTBROKEN family of the British dad who was stabbed to death in Bali are raising funds to bring his body back home.
Matt Harper, 48, from Gloucester, was found dead from multiple stab wounds in his home on the Indonesian island last week.
And now his devastated family has set up a GoFundme page in a bid to raise money to fly his body back to the UK.
Cops are probing his death but have said that the current working theory is that his death was “自杀” – alleging he stabbed himself multiple times.
In a post from Matt’s family his stepdaughter Lauren said he had died “in the most horrific and tragic way” but the circumstances “cannot be discussed at this present time due to an ongoing investigation.”
She branded him “the best son, 兄弟, 丈夫, brother in law, uncle and fantastic Daddy to his children” and added: “We are truly heartbroken, we know Matt was a character and one that we can never forget.
“He was loved by so many of you, friends all over the world, near and far. He was funny, kind and intelligent; he would have done anything for those he loved.
“Please let’s all come together and help the family get Matt back to us in the UK which would at least provide some comfort knowing he is near to us.”
His friends said that Matt who worked in Bali since February 2020, was on a video call with loved ones back in the UK when he was allegedly murdered.
But his Indonesian-born girlfriend Emmy Pakpahan who was quizzed by cops and remains under investigation, claims he was “hallucinating” and seemed “害怕的” before he died.
She claims he had a mental episode and deliberately harmed himself – saying he was in a “scared” state after waking at 3.30 am last Thursday.
She then filmed tragic Matt’s final moments through a window, sobbing on film: “Oh my god, oh my god. I don’t know what to do, I don’t know what to do.”
