Another foreign criminal some how makes it into Thailand. How many thousands more of various criminal types are hiding in Thailand? Thai Immigration makes it next to impossible at times to deal with a

Now tell us again that Thai police are incompetent.

What a scumbag, how are people with criminal records like this allowed out of prison or even allowed to have a passport?

so he was arrested in 2019 in the usa for murder and in the same year he came to thailand. 

For those charges he should't be bailed. If bailed his passport should be revoked.

 

the body of his wife was found rather by tracing his SIM location, rather than by dogs. Maybe dogs were used to find the spot, within few hundred meter radius 

 

Apparently, he was arrested again in December of 2020 and was out on bail...

 

Lots of information on another thread.  In fact, I don't understand why they started this one.

Well he is a scumbag but attempted murder doesn't carry a life sentence unfortunately. Nor does felony assault.

  Seems he got a real light sentence if he was out in only a couple years. He may have beat the charges or plead out tragic for a woman who's life has been drastically shortened

A post in the other thread indicated he led the cops to the body.  More accurately, "He was present when they found the body, not sure if he led them to the body or confessed but it is not looking good for him !!".

On Wednesday, a team of officers using sniffer dogs located the body of Pitchaporn in a field approximately 15 kilometres from their home. Her body had been stuffed inside a garbage bin and dumped in undergrowth.

But apparently, he was out on bail for the Dec 30, 2020 charges.  In which case, the judge should have required him to surrender his passport as a condition of bail.  Otherwise, he was a flight risk, especially if he had a history of travel to Thailand.   At the very least, his passport number should have triggered an alarm when it showed up on an international flight manifest leaving the country.  Some part of the criminal justice system failed miserably.

Right about now, a stint in a US prison probably looks pretty good.

 

Well bail would imply he still hasn't faced court which is even worse. Hard to imagine someone getting bail on that laundry list or charges.

This man is obviously a psychopath, a broken and defected human and therefore should be thrown to the scarp heap ASAP...

In China, a country which does require a police check from your home country for foreigners staying long term… Most of them counterfeit it, it is so easy… I’ve seen Chinese visa agents issuing a police check from several countries by filling up some things in a word document, and then using some fake stamps from that country. 
 

Yes they could make it mandatory to have it certified by your home country government, and then their local embassy in your home country. But then it would be a tremendous hassle. 
 

All this to say, come on, we are in the 21st century. We have smart passports which carry a chip, and any major record like this should be written into your passport chip, cryptographically signed with a private key owned by your home country, and then read and verified with the public key (to avoid tampering) upon your arrival at whatever country you are visiting. It certainly isn’t that hard.

It will be coming, on a required app first of course with your vaccination record.
