Shocking details of husband's escape after newlywed bride 'found beaten to death' in her honeymoon hotel room | The Sun

NEW details have emerged of a husband's "escape" after his new bride was found dead in their honeymoon bungalow.

Newlyweds, Christe Chen Dawson, 39, and Bradley Robert Dawson, 38, were on a Fiji honeymoon when things took a turn for the worst.

Just two days after the happy couple checked into their luxury bungalow at the Turtle Island Resort, Christe was found dead by her butler and Bradley was nowhere to be found.

The Dawson's personal butler ended up finding Christe after the couple went missing for half the day on July 9.

When the Dawson's didn't show up for breakfast, their butler went to the couple's bungalow only to be greeted with a "do not disturb sign" on the door, the Daily Mail reported.

The butler then waited until lunch when the Dawson's didn't show up again, before he entered the bungalow.

He then went back to their room and unlocked the door with a spare key, according to the outlet.

The butler started to clean the other rooms before he saw blood stains on the bathroom wall.

This lead him into the bathroom where he allegedly found Christe's body, bloody and beaten to death, said the Daily Mail.

According to a coroner's exam, Christe suffered from multiple traumatic injuries on her body and blunt force trauma to her head.

The butler then alerted hotel management who called the authorities.

The police couldn't find Bradley at the scene of the alleged crime.

What the authorities didn't know at first was that Bradly already traveled 1.2 miles across the water from the resort, according to a local witness.

According to Manoa Ratulele, a 49-year-old local man, Bradley used a kayak to flee to Matacawalevu island between 2am and 3am on July 9, as he told the Daily Mail.

"But he landed on a secluded beach and I don't know what he was doing after that," Ratulele said to the outlet.

Bradley was apparently bruised and bleeding from his palms and feet, which may have been from falling on coral, the Daily Mail reported.

"At first he kept refusing food and water and insisted he was ok, but I insisted he had some water and after that he said – Please, I need to call the police," Ratulele told the outlet.

Ratuele said that Bradley appeared to be very drunk.

"He didn't tell us he had killed his wife but I could still smell alcohol on him," Ratuele said.

"He continued to repeat that 'we had a fight' and offered no start or end to that story, just kept saying 'we had a fight'."

The police eventually found Bradley and took him to Lautoka where he was charged with the alleged murder of his new wife.
