Death Island- Koh Tao

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Koh Tao scuba diving school owner assassinated in broad daylight as he chatted with friends near Sairee Beach. The Royal Thai Police won’t solve his murder though. A hit man fired 6 shots into Virat Asavachin aka “Mr Ban” then calmly walked away.

From another thread, but probably relevant here

I would never never ever ever ever do that in Thailand. In the long run your number would come up for sure.

Same for my ex. She's done 7 (i think) solo bicycle trips all over Cambodia - and 1 in Thailand.
Too spooky she reckons too.

Letter from Koh Tao murder scapegoat Zaw Lin. He reports that he was infected with covid-19 and says that some prisoners in Bangkwang Central Prison died of the virus. He asks about a proposed transfer of Wai Phyo and himself to a prison in Myanmar but has not heard from Myanmar officials about this since last year.

DIVING INSTRUCTOR SLASHED OPEN TOURIST'S NECK!

Now that Thailand is beginning to open up to international tourism and Great Britain has removed Thailand from its red list or "no go list", it's likely that more UK citizens will be looking for a vacation in the Land of Smiles in the coming months and next year. It is therefore an appropriate time to revisit the story of the unprovoked attack by a Koh Tao scuba diving instructor using a broken beer bottle upon a Scottish tourist on 15 August 2020.

The thumbnail features an artist's impressions of the victim's ghastly neck wound before and after surgery - but without all the blood. The work was commissioned and paid for by the video creator.

Body disposal on Koh Tao.

Murdering people on Koh Tao is not particularly difficult. However, disposing of bodies is more of a challenge. Bodies dumped in the ocean tend to wash ashore somewhere. In addition, the island is so tiny that there is always the strong possibility that a body will be discovered if left in the jungle.

There were rumours circulating around Koh Tao that the island’s butcher & pig farmer helped in the disposal of bodies by chopping them up and possibly even feeding them to his pigs. 🐖 🐖

The butcher was convicted of the 2002 slaying of Mr Ban (Virat Asavachin) on Sairee Beach, Koh Tao.

This was the same year that a notorious Canadian serial killer & fellow pig farmer, Robert Pickton was arrested. Pickton was thought to have murdered 49 people and the government of British Columbia issued statements saying he was suspected of selling human flesh with pig products and of feeding victims to his pigs.

Many Koh Tao apologists criticise me for focusing upon murders on Koh Tao but the reference to Robert Pickton did not pacify them.

Pickton is certainly not the only killer suspected of feeding victims to pigs. Pigs are excellent at disposing of human bodies except for some parts such as teeth and dentures.
