PATTAYA: -- Pattaya police have named the man in diving gear found floating in the sea off Koh Larn last week.

 

They said he is US citizen Frank Thomas, 52. Mr Thomas came to Thailand in 2013 and he has a Thai wife.

 

They have not ruled out murder.

 

They said he was on holiday in Koh Larn and was harpooning fish in the sea.

 

He was found with a wound to his neck.

 

Police are anxious to speak to his wife who was not with him on the trip to Koh Larn.

 

Pattaya police are working on two theories - murder or that he killed himself, reported Thai News Agency.

Considering the original report said his throat had been slashed, suicide would seem to be a very unlikely prognosis one would think.

But it's an easy out for the BIB...they don't stand to make any money from this case unfortunately.

Well someone with scuba and harpooning experience....is it likely one could accidently (or purposely) wound your own neck with one of these  things?

Columbo would say that his harpie wife hired some goon to tag along on the boat trip, and bump him off.   i would be inclined to agree with columbo.
