    From what I gather, the suspect prof did give a sample in the end, and as I say, he was a suspect, along with others, including a cop, so there's quite a mix there.

    The info out in public is that the DNA found at the murder scene was Asian, letting all the farang suspects off the hook, but who knows, maybe one of them was complicit in the crime, as at least two persons were spotted "hovering" around the Aree guest-house at the supposed time of the murder.

    Then we have a member of the Thai Tourist police who was also under suspicion, apparently a friend of the professor.

    I dunno, it's a messy case, and I for one think there's a cover up going on, that the perpetrator is already known to police, and that the situation is highly embarrassing .

    Return Thai murder victim's belongings, says MP

    Kirsty Jones's killer got away with it!-_100268042_kirstyjonesthaimurderpafamilypic-jpg
    The belongings of a Welsh backpacker murdered in Thailand 18 years ago should be returned, an MP has said.
    Kirsty Jones, 23, was raped and strangled in a hostel in Chiang Mai in August 2000. Her killers have never been caught.
    Brecon and Radnorshire MP Chris Davies said her possessions could still hold clues to their identity.
    He said time was running out to get justice for the family as Thai cases are closed after 20 years.
    He told BBC Radio Wales' Sunday Supplement programme: "Kirsty's belongings are still in Thailand. They haven't even be sent home to her parents.
    "We want them to come back here. We want to have further investigations carried out."
    The Liverpool University graduate, from Tredomen near Talgarth, was just three months into a two-year round-the-world trip when she was attacked and killed.

    Mr Davies said he had written an international letter of request to have Ms Jones' belongings returned for further testing.
    The Welsh force has been asked to comment.
    "We have two years to do it. Time is running out for the Jones family," said Mr Davies.
    "What they need now is justice. We sadly are not able to bring Kirsty back, but if there's one thing we can deliver its justice and closure for the Jones family."
    The politician the matter with Prime Minister Theresa May last year in the House of Commons.
    She said it was not for the British government to interfere with police investigations in another country.

    I'm sure they'll give them a jolly good wash before they return them.

    Quite simply, Theresa may is a cvunt and looking at her the other day it seems her Type 1 diabetes might ensure she never makes old bones.
    I can't recall despising a politician more than that ghastly bag of geriatric bones.

    The mother of murdered Welsh backpacker Kirsty Jones has spoken of her "emptiness" as an international investigation into her death ends.

    Ms Jones was killed in Thailand where the 20-year statute of limitations on the case ends on 9 August.

    After that no-one can be prosecuted for Kirsty's rape and strangulation at a guesthouse in August 2000.

    Her mum, Sue Jones, said it was a "sad time" for the family as they remembered a woman with "the world at her feet".

    "We have worked hard over all of these years to keep the Thai authorities interested in Kirsty's case and to ensure that the investigation continued to try to identify the persons responsible for her murder," she said.

    "Kirsty was a bright, intelligent, independent young woman who had the world at her feet.

    "Kirsty has gone from our lives, whilst her killer remains at large.

    "Had they been brought to justice the sadness and emptiness would remain the same, but it may have brought us some closure."

    Ms Jones' mother said she hoped her daughter would be proud of the family's attempts to get justice.

    And she said she was "confident" the Thai investigation into the 23-year-old's death would have ended years ago were it not for the efforts of Dyfed-Powys Police.

    "We are now in contact with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office so that we can finally get Kirsty's belongings back home with us," she said.

    Det Supt Gary Phillips said Dyfed-Powys Police had kept in regular contact with the Thai authorities.

    The force's officers had travelled to Thailand several times to work on the investigation, he said.

    Det Supt Phillips added that the Thai police had now closed the case and shared the family's "deep disappointment" no-one had been brought to justice.

    The murder of backpacker Kirsty Jones in Thailand
    In May 2000, Kirsty Sara Jones left her home in Tredomen, near Brecon, Powys, for a solo backpacking holiday around the world.

    The 23-year-old visited Singapore and Malaysia before moving on to Chiang Mai, Thailand, in early August 2000.

    She checked into a guest house and went trekking in nearby mountains, sightseeing and meeting new people.

    During the early hours of 10 August, after enjoying an evening with friends, Kirsty was attacked and murdered in her room.

    Her body was found the next morning, triggering an investigation that would span 20 years and two continents.

    The case was closed in 2001 due to insufficient evidence, but Dyfed-Powys Police successfully lobbied to get it re-opened.

    Despite several arrests, no-one was ever charged with Kirsty's murder.

    Yes, I'm sure the Thai police are distraught.
