The French owner of a restaurant in Koh Samui has been arrested for the murder of a businessman.

 

The body of the victim [name withheld] was found at the Tan Rua waterfall.

 

Three men are believed involved in his his death. Two men have fled.

 

Arrested on Friday afternoon was Jean Paul Celine (name transliterated from Thai), 43, a restaurant owner on the holiday island. 

 

Two other men named only as Yves and George are wanted.

 

The murder relates to a business conflict over the sale of another restaurant. 

 

It was originally to be handled by the deceased but after one of the wanted men got involved in the sale an argument ensued that resulted in the murder of the victim.

 

Those responsible believed they could toss the body at the falls and make it look like drowning, said police.

 

Samui police chief Phaitoon Krajajang led the arrest on Thursday afternoon of the Frenchman.

More silly photos from the Police station

 

why is it that the police always present their case - or several versions of it to the press

1 - Before the investigation is complete

2 - before it goes to court?

A lot of foreigners with criminal backgrounds in their home country open up business in Thailand.  I am not surprised. 

 

 

Not only foreigners would be more exact

yea the general said no parading of suspects or photos from what i remember. almost every business i have heard of with partners in thailand has had problems. many of them violent. better to go it alone if you are going to go into business here but then i guess only one person has to cop the complete annual losses.

Especially if his ID saying he's 43 proves totally false and he is much older, as he appears, and very wanted...

Speculation, but it fits the scenario.

The media have reported that the police said that those responsible thought...

Even if the media could be relied on to report accurately, the police don't appear to have made any assumptions of their own other than the fact that this is a murder case and they have arrested suspects.

The only criticism I have so far is the use of photos that could encourage bias.

I read many books about true killer stories. I have noticed that most killers seem to be either very smart, or very stupid.....not much inbetween.....but what they both have in common is they think they are smarter than the police. One case today where an Australian doctor killed his wife with an overdose of insulin. This guy seemed to be totally ignorant on computers, as the police found two days before he killed his wife he had been doing research on insulin overdose on his computer. He could have done this research in a cyber cafe with less chance of being found out. And he used a prescription for insulin he had written for another woman patient....not smart. And he had insurance on his wife, and a mistress he spent the night with after injecting his wife.

Another one in Washington State in the USA.....the wrong guy got convicted and ten years in prison. The killer confessed later and only did eight years before being released.....something wrong with this picture.
