Englishman Murdered In Hua Hin Robbery

96 posts in this topic

Came across something in the English press here.

Dying Briton 'killed by Thai wife for his money'

A dying British businessman was beaten to death on the orders of his ‘evil’ Thai wife so she could get her hands on his money early, police have said.

Raymond Hyde, who had throat cancer, was killed by wife Bunnag’s brother because she could not wait to inherit £200,000, his house and bar business, it was alleged.

The 68-year-old, from Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, died at his retirement home in Hua Hin, 241km (150miles) south of Bangkok, last month.

:(:annoyed:

Another sad Farang Husband - Thai wife - Thai lover and family involved in murder; it's always about greed...how sad, tragic and disgusting at the same time.

I hope justice will be done.

There were earlier murder cases with wife, family and her lover involved:

The murder case of Jules Odekerken - in 2003

Dale Henry - Canadian Brutally murdered in Ranong in 2008

May Mr. Raymond John Hyde RIP

LaoPo

Sadly, until I spent many years in Thailand I never realised life was worth so very little,and money and wealth was valued so much.

IMHO and from my observations everything in Thailand has a price and comes down to avarice,and a desire for wealth without a thought or conscience for the rightful owner.

So nothing has a real intrinsic value. as long as you have "Face" which equals wealth it matters nothing how wealth was achieved or come by,This is why Thaksin is so revered.

One could be forgiven for thinking that this is the Norm in Thailand!

Blood money and tainted money will surely bring bad Karma to the wrong doers.

Rest In Peace Raymond.

Fatal attraction: The last known picture of Raymond Hyde with wife Bunnag, who is accused of ordering his murder to inherit his wealth

Personal Note:

I recall a photo* that the girl/woman who was involved in the murder on her husband Dale Henry from Canada in Ranong in 2008 (see previous link in an earlier message) made EXACTLY the same V-sign behind the head of her husband as this woman, Bunnag.

It gave me the creeps when I just noticed that. :ph34r:

A very small comfort is the idea that that woman was sentenced to life in prison, together with her accomplish murderers.

I'm shivering...as if that sign was a kind of death-sign: two married women...both giving a V-sign and later have their husbands murdered. :(

The murder happened while Mrs Bunnak, or Fon Hyde, 32, the wife of the deceased, was out shopping in Hua Hin market buying some items in preparation for merit-making on the upcoming Thai religious holiday of Asanha Bucha Day.

haha what a sweet, pious devoted wife. If she was the planner of this act may she rot in hel_l.

Yep, spoke volumes to me. A complete lack of respect... a Thai g/f wouldn't be doing that to her Thai guy no matter what the age difference or her status. Looks a nasty piece of work even without seeing her eyes. The poor guy was very ill to begin with and 'she couldn't wait...'. Pack of wild animals. :bah:

Why are Thai women so fond of the V sign?, what does it mean to them?

Some birds will flash the sign in every single photo...

It is nothing more than a playful gesture with no overtones whatsoever. Thais do it all the time when they know photos are being taken.

Isn't it weird that in all the years that I'm a member, I can only recall 2 photos on Thaivisa...just 2...that show 2 married Thai women who are both showing the V-sign behind the head/back of their respective husbands and both of them had their husbands murdered ?

"It is nothing more than a playful gesture...." really ?

In these murder cases it's an absurd and absolute BIZARRE coincidence...this playful gesture...

A wealthy English businessman, Raymond John Hyde, 68, from Hua Hin, was stabbed to death in a violent struggle in his bungalow during an attempted break-in and robbery on the 26th July.

His was found by his Thai wife, Fon, 32, when she came back from a shopping trip...

I read this far and easily guessed the end of the story. :ermm:

to teach her husband a lesson because he regularly berated and insulted both her and Thai people, saying they eat dirty food like animals and that they were uneducated and lowly

Nice little curve ball there.:realangry: Is it enough for a not-guilty verdict? :ermm:

At least make the perp a hero in prison. ;)

Ahh yes. We all know that every woman who has ever been involved in prostitution is obviously a cold blooded murderer.

What a ridiculous comment Tom. Shame.

RIP to the deceased.

Before everyone jumps on the bandwagon to hang the accused, there are some factors that are going to have to be considered;

1. The deceased was allegedly dying of throat cancer. (Let me guess, a chronic smoker.) He is reported to have been worth a small amount of money and had a bar. One of the articles suggests the woman couldn't wait until he died. Think about the claim please. If he was sick, then he would not have had much strength to resist anything the wife wanted to do. When one is dying, the last thing one cares about is a cruddy bar. If she is as evil as some are suggesting she could have taken over the bar during his incapacitation. As for the cash payout, It's chump change

2. Why kill him in the manner reported when one could have poisoned him and everybody would have assumed it was the cancer?

3. The crime of passion aspect has to be considered in light of the claim the deceased was abusive. Mr Thanakorn testified that it all began with Mrs Bunnak telling him that she wanted someone to teach her husband a lesson because he regularly berated and insulted both her and Thai people, saying they eat dirty food like animals and that they were uneducated and lowly. This built up a deep feeling of resentment and anger in Mrs Bunnak which led to Mr Khomkrit being asked to teach him a lesson, but only as far as injuring him. The testimony is plausible and some Thais can be quite proud. A decade of this type of hectoring, combined with the difficulties of the cancer could have pushed the wife over the edge.

Maybe the deceased was a living saint and was kind to his wife. I don't know. In the absence of corroborating evidence, it is unfair to rip the accused apart. Some people can be downright awful to live with. And no I am not justifying the murder. However, there may be mitigating reasons for the event. And don't throw up your hands in righteous indignation, because you all know well the type of person that runs these types of bars and marries a 23 year old girl that is 30 years younger. I have yet to meet a foreign guy in his 50's running the typical Thai beer bar, that would be someone I would want to know. Maybe this guy was different. However, if you are going to give him the benefit of the doubt, then so too must you give the accused wife the same consideration.

geriatrickid, you make some valid points and present a balanced argument, but like you I don't know what went on behind closed doors maybe Mr Hyde spoke down to his wife and maybe he didn't, unfortunately he cannot give his side of the story having been beaten with a hammer, stabbed and succumbing to his injuries in this cowardly attack.

However if he did talk down to his wife and she was that unhappy maybe she should have just walked away, taking her lover with her.

Geriatrickid, she must have had a bag and the house had doors and windows from which she could have escaped from this Man.

Why did nt she pack off somewhere with her giggolo and live happily ever after?

Justifying or trying to reason the intent of murdering a human being because he was talking down on you, you must be out of your knickers.

With the reported boyfriend on the side and a blood thirsty brother, the victim might have been not so happy with his Thai family and might have led to saying a bit more than necessary.

With much condolence and respect to the deceased , just that this country being ' AMAZING THAILAND' already speaks of itself in many ways ; Land of Smiles ; City of Angels -Smiles &Angelic adds up to a well known trade "Sex &$$$$$$$$$..".Farang men just can't resist ; never learn; just too bad for them..Am sure many many similar cases but uncover yet or 'already covered up'. Incredible especially when news involve all these so called rich wealthy men.....can't find a proper decent partner ..another side of the coin...perhaps they themselves are questionable in terms of their behaviour too!!:whistling:

What a dastardly act. Reading that she "wanted to teach him a lesson" for insulting Thailand makes my skin crawl. Getting your lover to kill your husband to defend your culture sort of says it all doesn't it.

Obviously, taking the moral high ground or turning the other cheek doesn't extend to Thai culture either, so better to kill someone.

As for putting a V sign above your husbands head, I have never seen a Thai woman do this to a man, let alone her husband, and my wife would never ever dare to do it to me. It is as far as I am concerned extremely disrespectful between adults in Thai culture.

It is *not* a playful act when it is placed behind the head.

They playful V-sign Thai girls do here is the same as Korean and Japanese girls, around their *own* face, usually close to the corner of the cheeks / mouth.

Not the same.

I'm not so sure. My wife will do this (behind the head) regularly with her sister, brother, and friends when taking pictures. They will respond in kind for the next picture. They all seem to get a big laugh out of it, with never any hard feelings or aggression.

I just showed that photo to some of my very polite staff members without telling them anything other than he is her husband. I asked, "Is this bad" and they laughed and said that she is just joking. i think some posters are reading too much into it, but she certainly looks to be a hard case.

Sorry, I agree, that wasn't a nice thing for me to write. My apologies to the wife for assuming she was a former prostitute.

You sir are a first class tool, with no sense of respect for other peoples feelings. Whatever you may think (which is questionable), it might be useful to try and have some respect.

RIP Raymond Hyde and condolences to friends and family. Hopefully, the perpetrators of this heinous crime are punished with the full force of the law.
