A British supply teacher who was reportedly murdered in Bali has been called ‘courageous and passionate’ by her brother.

Anne-Marie Drozdz, 49, originally from Hinckley, Leicestershire, was found dead in her Ubud villa on Thursday after apparently being attacked.

Her brother Gregory Drozdz was told she had been involved in ‘some kind of scuffle involving a burglary’.

‘It’s gut-wrenching. You never expect it’s going to happen to you and your family,’ he said.

‘It has left us raw, bewildered and confused.’

He said he’d sent Anne-Marie birthday greetings for her 49th birthday on April 29 and was struggling to cope with her death.

‘She was courageous and passionate. Where she taught and the pupils she taught were critical to her. The people meant a great deal to her.

‘She was intelligent, free-willed and independent. She was very much a free spirit. To have that life snuffed out in a matter of moments is adding to our grief.’

The Jakarta Post said a Bali man had been arrested in connection to the murder of the Bristol University drama graduate.
