Anthea Bradshaw-Hall, aged 26 years, was a teacher who worked at Murray Bridge. Anthea had been married for 12 weeks and during this time her husband was working in Brunei on the island of Borneo in South East Asia. In July 1994 she went to visit her husband in Brunei and during the visit was interviewed for a teaching position there. Anthea was due to leave Brunei and fly back to Australia on 22 July 1994 prior to any possible move to Brunei.
On 21 July 1994, the day before her return, she was murdered in her husband’s apartment in Brunei. A Coroners hearing held that the death was suspicious with limited suspects. In the area where Anthea was murdered were people living and working in Brunei that travelled there from all over the world. Over the years many of these people have left Brunei with some returning to Australia. It’s never too late – they might have the missing piece of the puzzle.
Anthea’s family understands asking for information about a crime committed in another country 24 years ago through Crime Stoppers is unusual but they strongly believe someone in or from Adelaide may have information that could help solve this case.
