Was Taras murdered ?
Did he fall down the stairway into uluwatu cave ? Foul play or his own doing caused his death ?
It is unlikely that Bali police can investigate because Taras family are in West Australia and is unlikely to be physically possible to give permission for autopsy by visiting the morgue in Bali.


From news report:
"Police in Bali say they cannot rule out foul play was involved in the death of an Australian man who was found face down and dead on a Bali beach."

"He said whilst there were wounds on the Australian man's body it could not be determined if they were deliberate or accidental."

"There are several wounds on the victim's body. However, it doesn't mean that it is caused by violence. The wound could be caused by a deliberate action, such as an assault, or it could also be because of an accident," Dr Henky said."

"He said an autopsy was needed to determine the cause of the death."

"The body was lying face down under some stairs leading to the beach and he was bleeding from the mouth and his chest was blue."

If he was out surfing you'd think someone would have noticed him get into trouble or at least his board floating around with no owner. And most of the time you'll be attached to it with a legrope. unless you're like me at Bells when mine snapped, although that was back in the good old days with the nylon cord attached to the fin and hankie around the ankle.

There are some news articles behind paywall I saw on "the west" site. Could you please post them here if you are able to share thank you. Much appreciated

There's no surfboard or legrope leash to be seen. No indication that he was surfing. He was seen the night / arvo before, then next seen found in morning.

Could you try pressreader Met?
I've already had a look at what was free in Pressreader for all of last week and this weekend on this case (The West and Sunday Times)

There was a paywalled article (below link) online in the West, that did not appear to be in the paper version of the West (from checking Pressreader)

But I suspect that the Daily Mail and whatsnewtoday articles on Taras took stuff from The West article (below).

This autopsy is unlikely to happen in Bali.
Maybe it can occur in perth when T.M. body is returned to Australia.
Cause of death possibly deduced...

"Police have requested an autopsy be conducted on Taras Mulik, whose body was found on Sunday.

But the family has yet to visit the morgue and give permission for an autopsy to take place".

"He said an autopsy was needed to determine the cause of the death.

"There is an autopsy request from police. We are still waiting on approval from the family. We haven't conducted an autopsy as the victim's family hasn't come to give approval."

Here's a new article that is not currently paywalled
In case it disappears behind a paywall I've archived it too

With reports that the family is refusing an autopsy, which family are they referring to?
His Perth/non-Bali family (assuming he has close relatives alive), his Indo one, or both?

What might any of Taras family be afraid of that an autopsy might uncover?

'there are signs of abrasions, bruises and a base skull fracture caused by blunt trauma.'

My assumption was due to religious beliefs

So in Indonesia, you can murder a close family member, then attempt to stymie murder investigations by not allowing an autopsy?

What other countries does the local law work like that?

Damn seems like homicide.
I don't think his family are "refusing" more so they are attempting to get the corpse back to australia & that is very complicated to do

And this;
"It says there are abrasions, bruises and signs of a base skull fracture caused by blunt violence. There were also signs of submersion in water."
