Friends of the 63-year-old discovered the man’s body after he had not been seen for several days.

Police are treating the death as suspicious and said there were signs of a violent struggle.

It was reported that Mr Richardson sustained wounds to his arms and face and several items in his home were broken.

Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is providing assistance to his family.
