Police clarify seven Koh Tao death cases

Police and administrative officials have taken a proactive approach to restoring the reputation of Koh Tao by clarifying the details of investigations into the deaths of seven foreigners over the past three years.

In a briefing at provincial police headquarters on Friday, senior officers gave details about all six cases, involving seven deaths in total, since 2014. It was attended by the police liaison officer of the Belgian Embassy as the latest case involves a Belgian woman.

The tourist island has come under a harsh spotlight since reports emerged two weeks ago about the death of Elise Dallemagne of Belgium. Her mother cast doubt on the local police conclusion that the death was a suicide, and the investigation has been reopened.

Of the six other cases, five have been solved, said Surat Thani police chief Pol Maj Gen Apichart Boonsriroj, who detailed them one by one.

This is for people who cannot speak for themselves or have no clues when come to visit Thailand.
Next visit, don't bring beautiful girlfriends along; moreover, it is best not to provoke locals by showing an affectionate in public "no kissing in public anywhere in Thailand" Southern Thailand, most locals are Muslims, and they don't like to see tourists are being too happy in night on the beach, on any islands/ beach in southern Thailand. Peace and Serenity to all visitors. Have a good day.

don't bring beautiful girlfriends along
So if one has a beautiful girlfriend, he/she should travel alone? Doesn't sound right to me. Although, I agree with your comment on showing too much affection on public places. Still, even this doesn't stop the chaopho and nakleng being what they are.

I can see one logical explanation
If you are in a traffic accident, it is the farang's fault, because if the farang was not in Thai the accident would not have occurred.
Same,Same--- If the farang had not gone to KT they would still be alive therefore it is their fault that they are dead.
