DEATH ISLAND RIDDLE:  Koh Tao mystery deepens as ‘healthy’ dad becomes TENTH Westerner to die in suspicious circumstances

Competing with locals for the tourist dollar on Koh Tao is a very high-risk occupation.

 

A friend of mine had a successful dive shop on Koh Tao. Was woken up one night with a gun in his face and told he had 24 hours to leave.

Sure but from the linked 'Sun' article he had already left:

 

Bernd, a wealthy entrepreneur, moved to the island two decades ago, buying two properties and building up a motorbike rental business.

But he left in 2016 after becoming frustrated with the corruption and hostility towards foreign business owners.

He started another business in neighbouring island Koh Phayam before returning in March to "tie up loose ends".

... sure so can be riding one of your motorcycles but the article does not suggest any signs of trauma.

Exactly, like an autopsy you could mistake a fatal snake bite for a heart attack!

 

Easy, if only you want.

or

Heart attack from snake bite.

Another ten or twenty unexplained death and still ignorant folks would keep flocking to that damned place.

I visited K.T. four times before the murder of the two young Brits. The last time I was so furious about the rude handling of passengers by the staff of Lompraya ferry company. Never ever...

I worked on KT in 2001 and from what I saw then, your comment is very likely true.... It's a lawless little place...

But very sadly, condoned by those in authority on the Island!

Why do tourists still flock to this island given its reputation?

Because not everybody is a stick-in-the-mud (from the KT Pub crawl FB site)
