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

Recommended Posts

I would say 80% chance for a snake bite. But of course without an autopsy the speculations just continue

Thank you. So let's hear some 'strong argument' that the demise of the late H. Bernd was the result of foul play other than might have could have possibly maybe.

Without any evidence, there's no chance of a "strong argument" either way.

 

It's 'just' another suspicious death on the island.

 

I don't understand why a knowledgeable snake handler didn't rush immediately to the hospital for anti-venom, after he was bitten by the snake?

the King Cobra is not a native snake to the island, so there isnt any anti venom, pretty sure he was fullly aware of this, hence the call to his sister.

I find that hard to believe, given their presence on neibouring islands in line on sight.

How could he rush immediately to the hospital when he was being held down by rival motorcycle shop owners?

You have them on Samui, Phangan, so anti venom is available.

I have become desensitised. Another death on Koh Tao is like hearing about a motorcycle accident. 

Doesn't shock me anymore because it has happened so often.

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

I visited around that time and it seemed nice enough. 10 years later when I passed by on the way to Phangan every possible boulder had a building on it, and I never went back.

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".

 

Koh Phayam is near Ranong in the andaman sea, Koh Phangan is near Koh Tao. Just saing ...

Suspicious investigation again?

Like for the case of the two British murdered, they had a suspect straight away, the son of the owner of AC but he said he cannot join is son by phone and the son appeared a week later with a video showing him in Bangkok at the time of the crime!?

So Thai police don't know how about geolocation of a phone?this guy was on koh tao or not, just ask the phone company!

That assumes that at the time he was using a SIM card registered in his name.
