He wasn't driving a flashy Porsche in a 3rd world city he was driving it in Pattaya (and Bangkok) where cars like these, and others much flashier than an SUV, are not uncommon.

Yea I'd have to agree with you. Other than the combination of the car model and the color screaming a bit of attention craving in itself I don't think it's a very flashy car.

 

Even up in Ubon Ratchathani there are Porsche Panameras and Cayennes driving around. If you see one, especially in a neutral color ie white/black then I doubt you'd go "my god that's too flashy and dangerous to drive in Ubon."

You would of thought if they could get hold of a gun, that they would of been able to get a stolen bike. 

Well that wouldn't have run the risk of drawing police attention, would it?

You'd have thought that, if they thought it necessary to retain the same driver for a speedy getaway, they would have silenced him with another 9mm handshake before crossing the border and saved the tip too.

A single fired cartridge case shown on a Thai news channel was .45 calibre.

 

Was he shot once or twice? Conflicting reports.

Must be nice being in Cambodia knowing a couple of murderers are walking around and the govt does sweet FA about it.

 

I thought 20 years ago when i first visited South East Asia things were progressing, with the exception of some shiny building i was very wrong.

one can't help get the feeling the Thai police are not really  interested in pursuing this matter any more.............................:ph34r:

 

Following the identification of two prime suspects for the murder of Tony Kenway last week, Thai authorities seem to have totally dropped the ball in the pursuit of the fugitives, who are believed to be in Cambodia. The suspects were rapidly identified thanks to the motorbike that they rented using their real ID for the hit on Kenway, as well as CCTV footage of the shooting. The Thai police very quickly located the means of escape and the border crossing where the men left the country. The Thai police were extremely efficient in finding and following traces of the two fugitives up until the moment they crossed the border into Cambodia.
However, there are still no Interpol wanted notices on the two suspected killers, and according to the Cambodian police, Thai police have not yet officially requested help in tracking down the suspects.The Cambodians know the names and passport numbers of the two men, but they need a formal request from the Thais in order to put out an alert.

Kim Ratana, deputy director at the Cham Yeam International Checkpoint in Koh Kong province who previously said Thai police had contacted Cambodian police to work on locating the two suspects, said he had no update.

Uk Heisela, chief of investigations at the Interior Ministry’s immigration department, said he wasn’t even aware of the case.

Apichat Suriboonya, head of the Interpol office in Thailand, referred questions to Royal Thai Police deputy commissioner-general Chalermkiat Srivorakan, the head of a committee set up to investigate the case, who could not be reached.

Major General Apichat told Thai newspaper The Nation last week that if the pair fled to a third country, Thai police would ask Interpol to help track them down. However, the suspects had not been added to Interpol’s online database of wanted persons as of on Sunday evening.

Exactly. The foot-dragging and silence is deafening. I think any speculation along the lines of your enquiry could end in a bad way for the speculator (the laws being the way they are in Thailand). 

On another note, this case (at least in the early days) received a lot of press in South Africa (where the alleged triggerman (Caldeira) is from). Apparently he has been living in Cambodia for some time where both his Mum and stepdad also live. When news broke, his stepdad apparently posted "Call me" on his FB page. 

Finally, according the South African press reports the Mum has received death threats from "foreign sounding" people (*note: foreign could mean anything in this context) and has either fled Cambodia and gone into hiding (in Portugal?) or is in hiding in Cambodia.

Check out the herald.co.za. They seem to be covering/investigatig this story the most.

any updates? the news are slow about this case now.

I can't believe the Cambodians or Interpol weren't alerted, must be a ploy to lure the perps out.

The worlds worst hitmen are turning out to be very good at playing hide and seek.

Agreed, a real mystery? Doesn't seem to be much progress on this story ... is it so easy to hide in Cambodia?

Disappearing is easy if nobody is looking for you.   Sounds like the case went cold due to a lack of interest in police work.

If they try and get back into Europe or SA they'll get a welcome committee.

"and asked to smoke cigarettes."     This would raise any ones suspicion. A dead give away. Never trust a smoker :)
