A 20-year-old Australian man found dead on his family’s farm owed substantial six figure gambling debts and was being hunted down, according to The Age.

Nathan Khoury, of Brunswick, was found lying in dirt with a rifle nearby at a family property in Bulla, just before midday last Thursday.

Sources told The Age the murder was made to look like a suicide.

“What I know for 100 per cent is that he owed a vast amount due to gambling and that weeks prior to his death he was calling everyone under the sun to lend him money,” the source said.

“He was desperate and knew something bad was on the brink.”

The exact circumstances surrounding the death are yet to be determined.

Mr Khoury worked as a mortician at his family’s funeral business K & S Funerals.
