The ex-husband of Byron Bay mother and murder suspect, Sara Connor, is due in Bali today to visit her in a police jail.
News Corp reports that Anthony ‘Twig’ Connor will be one of the first visitors the 45-year-old has had since she was jailed more than a week ago and named a suspect in the bashing murder of a Bali police officer Wayan Sudarsa.
The news organisation said it understood Mr Connor, a Byron Bay barman who is also the father of the divorced couple’s two boys, was due to arrive in Bali on Sunday night.
His visit comes as investigating police say this week they will take Connor and her British boyfriend David Taylor back to the scene of the crime, on a Kuta beach, to take part in an official reconstruction.
The News Corp Australia report says Taylor, 34, is also a murder suspect with police alleging he bashed the officer repeatedly about the head with a beer bottle, the officer’s binoculars and a mobile during the vicious attack.
It is expected that Connor and Taylor will be taken to the beach to show what happened on the night that police officer Sudarsa was bashed and then left bleeding to death on the sand.
The News Corp report says each has now given versions of what they say happened during exhaustive hours of police interrogation. But there are differences in the versions of Connor and Taylor and police they will ‘confront’ them with these differences at the reconstruction.
The reconstruction could be held as early as Monday or Tuesday and will be the first time that Connor and Taylor will be together since their arrest on August 19. Police have deliberately kept them separated since their arrest to avoid collusion before each was interrogated fully.
Connor was visited on the weekend by two women, her first visitors since her arrest. An emotional Connor hugged the women warmly when they saw each other on Saturday evening. The women were allowed into the single cell where Connor is kept, next to a police office in the upstairs section of the Denpasar police station.
Her boyfriend Taylor meanwhile is kept in the station’s jail section, along with other suspects. He was photographed on the weekend shirtless and shoeless in the jail, looking forlorn.
