Murder Charge Over DJ Death

A man has been charged with the murder of popular Byron Bay DJ Chris Bradley, known as DAD BOD, who was beaten to death on Christmas Day.

The 28-year-old “spinning legend” was unable to be revived after being assaulted at a party at a house in Carlyle Street, Byron Bay.

DAD BOD

Police arrested a 24-year-old Byron Bay man at Ballina airport this morning after he arrived on a flight from Sydney.

It is alleged he struck Mr Bradley on the head several times. Police said all parties had been drinking and alcohol was a factor in the incident.

The two men knew each other.

Mr Bradley, who moved to Byron Bay from Sydney, was much-loved in the local dance music community and just three days before Christmas had played at a new venue RYCE.

He was a regular on local radio station Bay FM and also part-owned Byron-based artist management company, Atypical Entertainment.

Music Producer and CEO of Turban Records Taranpreet Ahluwalia described Bradley as “the spinning legend of Byron”.
