Nong Preu police were called to the Map Prachan Reservoir yesterday morning after the discovery of the body of a foreign national.

 

A driving license showed that the deceased was the body of 61 year old Richard Walter Moll. No nationality was indicated.

 

There were no signs of foul play or injuries to the body that was dressed in bicycle riding gear. There was money in the wallet.

 

Nearby police found his bicycle and a pair of shoes.

 

Initially police suspect that the victim passed out and rolled down the slope to where he was found but an autopsy is taking place at the Police Hospital.

 

A Thai man called "Wiwat Chintawan" went on Facebook to say "RIP" and that the man was the father of his wife.

Yeah, RIP to the man and his family, as according to respect.

However, to me it looks like the police might be right. He just passed out. Right after the he took off his shoes and throwed his bicycle in the rice field.

The last thing he did, was turning around to see that he actually landed on a massive stone area, so he was sure to never wake up again.

Living in that area as I do, I see many cyclists and it is not so strange that one would have an accident or suffer a stroke in the heat of the last few days and not sure why so many would cynically look for foul play and play detective in this case. RIP to the man.

Knowing the reputation of the Thai police, I'm amazed that they are allowed to carry out autopsies at  police hospitals.

In fact I'm surprised that they are allowed to have police hospitals at all.

OK! Not surprised!

In your haste to bash you forgot to read the article.


RIP to the man

there was money in his wallet....WELL that would soon be gone !!

But how do they know none was missing ? A thief  ( possibly police officer ) could have taken a lot but left some to let people believe robbery was not a motive

If you look at the bike, it's obvious that it wasn't hit by a vehicle. If it was it would show some damage. Thats not say that a passing vehcile came too close and the man panicked and went off the road. Or he could have had a medical issue. 


RIP. I'm a cycler and love it but I stopped riding on Thai roads. It's just too dangerous.

From experience i can tell you take a minimum of money with you when cycling; maybe some for drinks or to pay a repair shop when you run into trouble. 

 

If you bring a bunch of banknotes you probably end up drying them in the sun after returning home. Even in a wallet.
