When 36-year-old Ramis Jonuzi checked into an AirBNB in Melbourne, Australia, he had no idea that it would cost him his life.

In October 2017, Ramis was looking for a cheap place to stay for a few nights and he selected the spare room of a home that housed three men of a similar age to Ramis.

The AirBNB in Brighton East, Melbourne was home to Craig Levy (36) a Chef, Ryan Smart (37) and Jason Colton (41).

The men hoped to generate a little extra income from Air BNB to help to cover the rent. The cost per night was only $30 per night so the room was frequently booked.

The reviews weren’t great, and the hosts weren’t well liked by their guests, but the home was well located and very low cost. One guest review said that they felt uncomfortable and suspected that they had property stolen whilst in the AirBNB.

Although Ramis didn’t get a great vibe when he arrived at the property, he stayed for three nights without incident. On the third night, Ramis asked his host Craig Levy if he could stay on for a few more nights for a reduced rate, preferably, for free.
