GONE TO GROUND Fugitive speedboat killer Jack Shepherd ‘is hiding from justice in remote village in Thailand’

Recommended Posts

Looking at the trial reporting, the only evidence about her driving seem to have come from Shepherd, including the claims that she insisted on driving and that she was going full throttle. Obviously she's not there to dispute his claims and since it serves his interests to place her at the helm, I'm just not convinced he's a trustworthy witness.
According to report the boat was not in good order prior to the accident, the steering had a problem.

Wouldn't stick out like a sore thumb, would he? 

Probably another example of indepth Thai police work. 

Nice unrelated Thai bash.  You can never resist getting one in can you.

 

There is no arrest warrant out for him in Thailand.  He fled justice in the UK.  What has that got to do with the Thai police?

He's probably not hiding in a remote village, but Pattaya like the rest of them so he can get laid and eat British food.

By the sounds of it this young punk needed to keep his mouth shut and get a better lawyer.

I'd say those items are what *most* people think on a daily basis.

Regarding OP I've been smashed out of my wits relinquishing control of my boat to more sober people, even less experienced ones, as I think it's "better" seamanship than trying to operate a vehicle while impaired. Lifejackets of course worn and safety regs for the most part adhered to etc; Got boarded one time by maritime patrol, checking the condition of the "skipper" when doing that, as the enforcers of the law saw that the boat was being handled erratically (not so calm waters and not so experienced skipper on a lake), I was personally taking a snooze in the kabooze and the driver wouldn't dare to wake me up, so went with the GPS a couple of hours along the lake. Well the boarding party made us all blow into the whistle, and 0.00% alcohol from the boat operator, (not gonna disclose mine, but several times over the limit). This boat type did not require licenses of any sort, even 100bhp x2 engines... End result was, that the law escorted us to nearest port to ensure safety for everyone. I asked of the liability if there was an accident, and surely they answered: it would be biased against the owner when relinquishing control to any other party.

Is this a clue to where he might have been? It was posted along with the article in a paper in the UK

So, who knows where this is?

Again, I haven't see anything saying the courts accepted it. Several news reports seem to accept it, I just can't see where they're getting that from - other than from Shepherd's words at trial.

 

Here's some reporting from the trial itself including verbatim quotes from Shepherd:

It was in a U.K Court , they would have checked evidence and circumstances and the prosecution would have questioned him about it and they seemed satisfied that what he said was true

The same U.K Court that found him guilty of manslaughter, after the cases of the defense and prosecution were both put forward !

According to the Daily Mail, it was Jack Shepherd who was driving the boat when it hit the log, and it is the young lady who is heard shouting; “You’re driving too fast.” 

 

She was not the first woman to jump aboard. The boat was part of his seduction technique, along with giving the young ladies plenty of alcohol.

 

The police had warned him twice before about his speeding; the life jackets were not easily accessible in an emergency; the boat was poorly maintained. It was an accident waiting to happen; and it did, with tragic consequences for one poor young lady.

 

Anyway, the Daily Mail is offering a reward of £25,000 for his capture and return to justice before the English courts. Full details, including information about his past, are here:
