Horror Film Producer and Biker Drowned Insist Police So Murder Investigation Is Off

By Andrew Drummond

The sister of a Briton, who was declared drowned in a shallow lake on Koh Samui, has expressed disappointment that a second post mortem has concluded her brother drowned and police will NOT now be continuing with a murder investigation.

Eve Deary, 53, from Waverley, Surrey, said that she still believed there may be prima facie evidence to show her brother Kevin Attew was murdered despite the fact that a second post mortem, this time conducted under the supervision of police at the regional headquarters in Surat Thani, again concluded that he died by drowning."

"We want to know how Kevin died. At the moment the signals coming back are confusing. But I have been told that is what to expect," added Mrs. Deary who received the news from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.

The second post mortem conducted by Dr. Nantana Jarunet, of Surat Thani Hospital for an investigation conducted by Lt. Colonel Pongkajong Sukasang, says that Kevin Attew had 150 mls of dirty water in his stomach and lungs. It still concluded he drowned.

But unlike the original post mortem conducted in Koh Samui, the second inquest confirmed two ‘impact marks’ on Mr. Attew’s head and five puncture marks on his back, penetrating 3 mm into the skin, and also bruising on his back and neck. [More...]

I don't trust the Thai police one iota. But then again, if they 'insist'...........

"We want to know how Kevin died. At the moment the signals coming back are confusing. But I have been told that is what to expect," added Mrs. Deary who received the news from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office."

I feel truly sorry for this lady and the family.

I guess he did drown ............ after being beat unconcous and left for dead.

Kudos to the Police for their excellent detective work in a difficult case!

Do you reckon that the Samui and Surat Thani police were colluding? Nah... they wouldn't do that.

are they for real !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! , i have seen the picture of when they found the body, and NO WAY is this drowning !, ok he may of had some water in his lungs but how can you explain all the other injuries ! ..... this is truly shocking

i think there mayof been a lot of lost face here, so instead og admiting they where wrong, the police insist on calling this a suscide !, or are being heavily paid off

I think most expats in Thailand know that mysterious deaths are part of the risks of living in Thailand, on a par with road accidents, malaria, dengue etc. Integrating with the local community is not a protection, Thais are probably more at risk than expats, it is simply that expats have a higher profile in the media.

So the Britton drowned? So it could not be that he was beaten and robbed, and then drowned? After all he has numerous wounds on his back and head as reported. If it was an accidental drowning, he could also have wounds if he fell onto rocks, but not so likely on his back. I say he was murdered in all probability after some robbery or altercation following a disupute.

Anything but have to look for the real culprit(s) when they have no clue who. 'Try to avoid embarrassment, rather than a real search for the truth, that keeps this in the face of the public.'

Sadly they never seem to realize NOT doing the investigations properly, DOES keep it in the publics face longer, and with a much worse reputation for Thailand. Their mindset does exactly the OPPOSITE of what they think it does. And harms tourism more than getting to the bottom of it properly, as is done in most places.

I'd met Kevin a few times.

The last thing I would think is he was a suicidal type. Not hardly.

The public known evidence points to foul play, whether he drowned in the end or not.

My condolences to Eve and his family.

If a persons head is held under water long enough they will drown, if they are thrown face down and unconscious in to a lake there is a good

chance that they will drown. Maybe the police should be trying to find out what happened to him and who he was with immediately before he

drowned. Oops that might take some investigation or maybe they already know.

The Surat Thani police probably ARE the Koh Samui police in most respects as Koh Samui comes under the jurisdiction of Surat Thani as it is in the Surat Thani province. If you look at the addresses for Koh Samui they will state Surat Thani at the end of it.

The Koh Samui police are probably equivalent's of the village Bobby in leafy Surrey just keeping relative order, and nothing else!!!
