David Crisp, 56, from Derby, was killed at his home in the northern Thai city of Chiang Mai, where he was a prominent member of the British expatriate community and director of a choral society.

"He had beaten about the head with a teak mug. His throat had also been cut with a six inch knife and the murderer tried to finish the act off by smothering him in a cloth which covered his piano," said Colonel Pattipol Serichaichana of the Chiang Mai police.

He said that police suspect the killer was a member of the Shan, a hill tribe which straddles the Burma-Thai border. A hill tribe ritual invoking animist spirits was performed by the killer to aid his escape.
How our friend Jonwilly dares to live among these barbarians?
I hope he is OK.

There is a bit more to this murder than meets the eye, what is more likely, he either pissed off someone in the local mafia , or even one of the local brownshirts , it is very easily done in LOS(Land of Smiles)just refuse to pay tea money ,At least 1 foreign business man or expat a month wakes up dead 8) in sunny thailand, life is so cheap , and your usually gobby potbellied sex tourist, doesnt realise when he starts a punch up in a bar that behind the thai smile lurks a lethal threat, whether from male or female, and in the eyes of thai law the foreigner has little or no rights :censored:

Nignoy is quite right, I did some work for Thai Airways a few years ago and the standard way of solving business disputes was to have your rival assasinated (usually from a couple of Thais on a motor cycle while you are sitting in your car in a traffic jam). An English friend of mine was divorcing his Thai wife and was basically told by his solicitor to leave the country until it was finalised because 'it would all be solved a lot easier if you were dead'.

Ah Sergey
Just found this thread.
I am dieing, but slowly, advanced age.
Thighland is a nice place to live, young folk are educated from Nappy stage to show respect to their elders.
I own a small place in a Block of University Students, even the boys are polite (95 % ) and the girls well for first two years they must be dressed 'St Trinians ' Syle.
If your daft enough to Come It with the wrong folk then much same as any where on this planet, you'll get it.
Mind you every one I know, Thai and us Frangs says that you will always get one formal warning before they Top you.
Enough time to book a ticket and be on your way, FAST.
