    Two Tourists Brutally Murdered on Koh Tao, One Raped: Police Spark Thailand Manhunt

    Two Tourists Brutally Murdered, One Raped:
    Police Spark Thailand Holiday Island Manhunt



    PHUKET: Two tourists have been savagely slaughtered in a murder and rape on a small Thai holiday island where residents are today blocking the pier to prevent the killer or killers escaping.

    Details are still emerging but it's known that the bodies of a young British woman and an Irish man were found early today on a beach at Koh Tao, a small island near the full moon party destination of Koh Pangan, in the Gulf of Thailand.

    Shocked residents have now blocked the pier at the island to prevent anyone leaving.

    The woman was found near-naked on a beach and the man was found nearby, with his head severely battered.

    Residents told police there had been a beach party for about 50 people, mostly foreigners, last night that went into the early morning.

    Police were scouring the island for signs of the killer or killers.

    They believe the young man may have been bludgeoned to death with a rock. The woman was still wearing a white bikini top, with her legs splayed.

    One theory is that the killer or killers may have seen the couple on a beach together after the party, and then pounced.

    The bodies were found between 4am and 5am.

    The murders are likely to have a dramatic impact on tourism to Phangan and nearby Samui.

    2 Brits murdered on Koh Tao

    3 news items; grim story this one.
    (Her surname ? more likely Witheridge)
    Thai news gives them both as being 24yrs old.


    Western woman found raped killed along with western man on Koh Tao
    September 15, 2014 2:09 pm
    Bodies of unidentified a western woman and a western man were found on a beach on Koh Tao in Surat Thani at 11 am Monday.
    Both had their head smashed and the woman was apparently raped, police said.
    Police and local villagers were still hunting for attackers by checking all boats leaving the tourist-destination island.

    Two Britons murdered on Koh Tao identified
    September 15, 2014 4:27 pm
    Two Britons founded murdered on Koh Tao in Surat Thani have been identified as Miller William Miller and Hannah Victoria Wither Idge.

    Both were 24 and arrived on the island on August 27 in separate groups. Police said the two met in a party Sunday night before left their groups together and were found killed on the following day.

    **************
    Koh Tao on lockdown after brutal murder of 2 British tourists
    Published: 15 Sep 2014 at 15.29

    Police locked down the tourist island of Koh Tao after the semi-naked bodies of two foreign tourists were found brutally murdered there on Monday morning.

    Reports said that all piers on the popular resort island were closed after police launched an intensive manhunt to find the killers of the victims, both in their early 20s.

    Police said no identification was found on the bodies. They were believed to be British. Police had not yet notified their next of kin.

    Police sources said the bodies were found stripped near their budget bungalow on Sai Ree Beach on the Surat Thani island popular for its full-moon parties and scuba diving.

    Police suspect that the woman, whose skirt was hiked up to her waist and t-shirt pulled up, was also raped. She had a large wound on her face.

    Four metres away, the male victim was found naked on his back with a wound caused by a blunt blow to the back of his head. A pair of shorts, a T-shirt and a denim skirt were found nearby.

    About 50 metres from the victims, police found a blood-covered hoe, suspected to be the murder weapon, Thai media reported.

    "They were murdered and found naked on the beach. Police were informed at 6.30am," local police official Jakkrapan Kaewkhao told AFP. Local media reported they had probably been slain between 4am and 5am.

    Local media also reported that residents told police there had been a beach party for about 50 people, mostly foreigners, on Sunday night that went into the early morning. Police were searching for witnesses and were yet to identify a suspect or motive, Mr Jakkrapan added.

    The double-murder has sent shockwaves through the island, popular for its full-moon parties and scuba diving.

    "It was the first time this has happened on the island, I have never seen anything like this," said an employee at the seaside resort where they were staying.

    Two Brits Dead in Koh Tao Rape Murder.

    English woman found raped and murdered next to body of Irish friend in Thailand


    The man and woman were found on a beach on the island of Koh Tao in the early hours of this morning


    An English woman has been raped and murdered on a Thai beach.

    She was found alongside the body of an Irish male friend on the island of Koh Tao in the early hours of this morning, near the popular Full Moon party destination Koh Panga.



    The Irish man is thought to have suffered a serious head injury, with Thai media saying he may have been beaten to death with a rock.

    The woman was found wearing just her bikini top.

    Detectives have begun an investigation, the beach has been closed, and residents are reported to have blocked off the local dock but it's thought those responsible may have already fled.

    The bodies were found between 4am and 5am after a beach party attended by around 50 people had continued late into the night.

    In a statement, the Foreign Office said: We are aware of the deaths of two British nationals on September 15 on the island of Koh Tao in the Gulf of Thailand.

    "The embassy is urgently seeking information from the local authorities and consular staff are ready to provide assistance to the friends and family at this tragic time."

    Should have the parents texting their kids like mad to stay away from Full Moon parties.

    Probably won't have much effect on the kids.

    My guess is they'll catch a couple of Burmese slaves and do them for it.

    I'm guessing this would be her; it's an unusual name and narrowed down to Norfolk. She looks a pretty, free-spirited young lady.

    What a fucking shame.

    FFS.....

    The young woman’s throat had reportedly been cut while the man had suffered a cutting wound on the back of his head. Some of the pair’s clothes were located nearby, as was a hoe, which police believe was used in the murder.

    “The man was chopped in the back and on the side of his head, while the woman was chopped in her face,” police chief Prachum Ruangthong told the Associated Press. “It’s very gruesome.”

    Scarcely a month goes by without some incident or other. It really is about time some meaningful caveats about Thailand are published by the embassies.

    Thailand is a very dangerous country with a high mortality rate among road users and victims of violent crime. Tourists are frequently the target of concerted scams, sharp practice and opportunist petty crime building a culture that they are fair game.

    Their society is essentially populated by a majority of ill educated, uncultured, brutish and quite stupid people beyond any civilisation that is not inculcated by fear, intimidation and coercion.

    Tourists should be advised that on no account in this country should they leave themselves in vulnerable positions where they are alone or not in a group.

    Predatory animals lurk almost anywhere and are only too anxious to pounce when the opportunity arises.

    Policing in this country is essentially reactive and not a threat to those who yield to the temptation of opportunist crime.

    The other factor not usually encountered by tourists or strangers to this country's culture is the deficiency in the average Thai's thinking whereby they cannot consider the consequences of their actions that may inhibit their animal instincts. In short, any number will kill or rape if they have a mind to and are sufficiently aroused.

    Today the residents of Ko Tao blocked the escape routes - that should tell you a lot.

    Today the UK moderate Muslims demanded Cameron start calling IS (Islamic State) the NIS (non-islamic state).
    That should tell you something too.

    One, or more likely a couple of broken machines on the island will be dead within weeks - and rightly so.
    First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

    I wouldn't rule out the police calling it a double suicide.

    Didn't you realise this though before you made a decision to live permanently there, a big life commitment? If you didn't (and you're a smart guy for a Teakdoor member), can't you see how young backpackers also make the same oversight.

    Hmmmmm.

    Murder probe launched after two Brits killed in Thailand

    A murder investigation is underway after the bodies of two British party-goers were found on a beach at an island resort in Thailand.

    The pair were thought to have attended a beach party on Koh Tao - an area popular with tourists and scuba-divers.

    The victims were a 23-year-old woman from Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, and a 24-year-old man from Jersey, in the Channel Islands, according to the Thai authorities.

    Police want to talk to a British man in connection with the deaths, ITV News understands.

    ^Well, all sorted then.....The deceased had a British friend, and he left the island on the morning ferry. Thus, no Thai or Burmese were involved. Friendly fire as it were...so, safe for tourists in LOS.

    Indeed. One of the few sensible posts on this thread. Sad fact is, this stuff happens all over the world.
    RIP.

    Of course I was aware of their propensity for senseless savagery before settling again. Christ man, I'm married to one!
