    This was the story in the Nation before Somyot took over the investigation. Was it the 9 million US that changed the story so drastically? The timing is just too coincidental.

    Police seeking former village headman's son who fled island

    Police are looking for the son of a former Koh Tao village headman in their pursuit of the killers of two British backpackers on the night of September 14, after learning that the man left the island the following morning.
    A police source said the man they want to find landed on the Surat Thani coast and disappeared. Police say they want to interrogate him first.
    The police last night released two men, who own Intouch Bar and AC Pub on the resort island, after interrogating them for three hours and finding no evidence linking them to the crime.
    One of the two men released last night, who reporters did not identify, said he was unable to contact his son and did not know if he had a hand in the killings.
    Another man, the younger brother of the former village headman, who is believed to be the man seen on a security camera near the crime scene, is still in custody.
    Pol Lt-General Panya Mamen, who is overseeing the investigation, said yesterday that the headman’s son is believed to be hiding in Bangkok. Panya refused to reveal the suspects’ names, saying police were questioning one man and expected to arrest another in Bangkok today.
    Today marks the 10th day since David Miller and Hannah Witheridge were brutally murdered on the island. Both suffered serious head wounds, while police said Witheridge was also sexually assaulted.
    “We expect results within 48 hours as DNA samples have been sent out for testing, and we are confident in this latest turn in the investigation,” he said.
    All sides should have confidence in the police investigation and believe that no scapegoats will be arrested so that the case can be closed, he said.
    “The world has been watching the case and police has been doing what it can to ensure that the evidence obtained is strong and tight enough to arrest the killers,” he said.
    Panya also promised that the investigation would not be influenced by reports that some influential persons on the island might try to obstruct police work.
    The chief investigator was speaking after police had summoned the owner of the Intouch Bar for questioning after investigators discovered that both victims had visited the bar and had had an altercation before they were found dead. Another person summoned was the owner of AC Pub, who local residents say is an influential person and the older brother of the man who owns Intouch Bar. Panya led the interrogation of both individuals.
    Local people and tourism operators on the island yesterday attended an annual religious rite to make merit for their deceased loved ones. They also made merit for the slain Britons and prayed that the police would be able to arrest the killers.
    Meanwhile, a police source said it was not possible that people on the island did not have any knowledge of what might have happened on the night of the murder. The source said may be they don’t want to talk to police, as they do not want to have problems with an influential group.
    Udom Tantiprasonchai, an executive with Orient Thai Airways, said he will add Bt500,000 to the bounty placed for arrest of the killers, Senee Puwasettathaworn, president of Koh Samui Tourism Association, said.
    This sum will bring the total bounty up to Bt713,000.
    Though the murders took place more than a week ago, and police have yet to charge anyone, tourism has not been affected too badly as it is still the low season. Local tourism operators, meanwhile, said they would not put any pressure on police, leaving them to focus on the job at hand.
    Press On Regardless

    If I'm not mistaken that would have been around the time that he sanctioned the chief investigator that took in Mon and all but named others on the island, be replaced the next day by a new chief investigator that found the Burmese.

    Petition asking for investigation into Thailand deaths handed in to UK government




    Credit: ITV NewsA petition has been handed in to the UK government asking them to investigate deaths in the Thai island of Koh Tao.
    It was set-up by mother Pat Harrington - whose son Ben died on there six years ago.
    Jerseyman David Miller was also killed there in 2014.

    The petition is asking for the Government to act on all suspicious deaths in Thailand.
    We would like them to make people aware of what they're going out to - even though it's a wonderful country, it's beautiful, there are risks taken when you go out there.
    Mrs May can lead this forward, she can talk to the Foreign Office Minister and ask them to interact and be more forceful in what happens in Thailand, give more support to all the families whose children are dying and give more support to the whole country with a website showing the dangers.
    – PAT HARRINGTON

    The truth probably not hard to discern by any who lived there, the prospect of closure and justice I'd regret is slim.

    I'm sure UK police are well aware how things work here. It's tough on the families but sure not to be the last.

    The full , loon , sex n drugs rock n roll , sun, biking without a helmet is so attractive to kids in nanny states and I don't imagine it'll change.

    Handy for the pooyais there's an endless supply of poor foreign fall guys. If former political leaders cannot get justice poor skivvies are perfect patsy's

    Family of Kiwi-born 'Death Island' victim suspect foul play and Thai police corruption

    Margaret and Boyne Annesley with daughter Christina.

    The families of young tourists who died on Thailand's notorious Koh Tao island under suspicious circumstances - including that of a Wellington woman - are fighting for justice with a petition to the UK government.

    Over the past few years about a dozen young tourists have been murdered or found dead under suspicious circumstances on the resort - dubbed "Death Island".

    The group of grieving relatives includes the parents of Christina Marian Annesley, 23, who was born in Lower Hutt and was found dead in the Koh Tao bungalow where she was staying in January 2015.


    Welllington-born Christina Annesley's parents are part of a group of families whose children died while on Koh Tao under suspicious circumstances petitioning for justice in the UK.

    "As a follow up to our lovely daughter's loss three years ago in Koh Tao we have joined with other families who have lost children on that not so lovely Island," Boyne and Margaret Annesley said.

    They think their daughter - whose death is still unexplained - may have died from an alcohol and prescribed medication combination but are now also suspicious it could have been foul play.


    The families of British tourists Hannah Witheridge and David Miller - who were brutally killed on Koh Tao in 2014 - are part of the campaign for justice that also includes the Annesleys.

    "We say this because of the incompetent - at the least - authorities over there."
    Koh Tao is the same island where British couple Hannah Witheridge, 23, and David Miller, 24, were murdered in 2014.

    The Annesleys say Thai police did not interview the last person to see Christina alive while a man arrested then exonerated in the Witheridge/Miller murders - Montriwat Tuwichian - also owned the bungalow where Christina was found dead.


    Thai resort Koh Tao was dubbed ''Death Island'' after a spate of suspicious tourist deaths over recent years.

    "[Hannah and David] were supposedly killed by the two Burmese but none of their DNA was found on the bodies.

    "The UK coroner returned an open verdict because most evidence was not in a good state because of incompetence or deliberate mishandling," Annesley's father Boyne said.

    Her body was left in a temple for days before a postmortem was done while the UK coroner the Annesleys contacted upon her arrival back home did not accept the Thai results.


    Thai national police chief Police General Somyot Poompanmoung (centre) stands next to two detained workers from Myanmar, suspected of killing Miller and Witheridge tourists on Koh Tao in 2014.

    The Annesleys were among a group who delivered a petition to British Prime Minister Theresa May on Tuesday calling for better translation services, and for warnings to be issued for countries where multiple young Britons had died.

    Last year Britain's Independent newspaper warned tourists to steer clear of the island, claiming it was in the "iron grip of a mafia family, who demanded protection money, controlled the local police force and were not above attacking or burning down the homes and businesses of people that crossed them."

    Laura Daniels, sister of Hannah Withebridge murdered on Koh Tao with her friend David Miller in 2014 sent out this message recently:



    "I don’t normally share publications from gutter press like The Sun... but in this instance, the more people who see this the better. How many more people have to be raped and/or murdered before people start taking the risks seriously and choose alternative holiday destinations? I appreciate that every country has risks and that atrocities and fatalities happen everywhere... but Koh Tao is such a tiny island, and rapes and murders of tourists are now so frequent that it’s no longer surprising to see articles like this in the news. The island is run and controlled by a family from the Thai mafia. In a country where drug possession is deemed a more serious crime than murder I would suggest, that if you choose to travel here, to warn your loved ones that your return date will be ‘if’ you return rather than ‘when’. If you’re sat thinking ‘it’ll never happen to me’ then you are misinformed... every family (all of the ones who have made contact with me) whose loved one has been raped or murdered since we lost Hannah have all had one thing in common... they all say that their loved one tried to reassure them, before travelling to koh tao, saying ‘it won’t happen to me’. Wake up and smell the coffee people... NO ONE is immune. It’s now dubbed ‘death island’ for a reason... don’t be its next statistic ."


    Meanwhile, two innocent Burmese men rot in prison while the real Thai killers run around free.

    Latest news, trouble is the translation...



    Police Lieutenant Surachet Chinnapol said the police investigated the maid. In the UK Will return to Thailand this Saturday. The evidence is a rape day wear.

Surat Thani And the police did not notice. Will return to Thailand. The testimony of British police, such as stained clothes, came back.
    The preliminary investigation of the victim to cooperate. There are English interpreters, Thai interpreters and English officials. Listen to the investigation.
    In this class, the inquiry team has not reported. The victim also confirmed the original statement or not. It is expected that after the Thai investigative team returned to the country. It takes about 7 days to conclude that. Did the rape happen?
    If it is true that the victim will be invited to interrogate in Thailand. The immigration office has not been blacklisted. It is a threat to the country. This will be true for all parties to be fair.


    พลตำรวจตรี สุรเชษฐ์ หักพาล บอกว่า ตำรวจที่ไปสอบปากคำแหม่มสาว ที่ประเทศอังกฤษ จะเดินทางกลับถึงไทยในวันเสาร์นี้ พร้อมนำหลักฐานเป็นเสื้อผ้าที่ใส่วันถูกข่มขืน
    วันนี้ (4ต.ค.61) ผู้สื่อข่าวรายงานว่า พลตำรวจตรี สุรเชษฐ์ หักพาล รักษาราชการแทน ผู้บัญชาการสำนักงานตรวจคนเข้าเมือง เปิดเผยว่า ในวันเสาร์ที่ 6 ตุลาคมนี้ คณะพนักงานสอบสวนของสำนักงานตำรวจแห่งชาติ ที่เดินทางไปสอบปากคำ แหม่มสาวชาวอังกฤษ ซึ่งเป็นผู้เสียหายที่อ้างว่าถูกข่มขืนที่เกาะเ ต่า จังหวัดสุราษฎร์ธานี และตำรวจไทยไม่รับแจ้งความ จะเดินทางกลับถึงประเทศไทย พร้อมนำพยานหลักฐานที่ขอรับมาจากตำรวจอังกฤษ เช่น เสื้อผ้าที่เปื้อนคราบอสุจิ กลับมาด้วย
