My daughters attack escalated to attempted murder

Postby Gillibeanz » Wed Jun 04, 2008 6:11 am

Hi guys

As you know I posted a thread on the brutal attack on my daughter and her partner on their holiday in Thailand in April. The case has now been upgraded to attempted murder. The island website newspaper has run an article on it:-

If you know anyone who is visiting Thailand and they happen to come across these guys who are now on the run please ask them to report it to the local police.

I hate to say there's anything good about a situation like this, but at least when they're caught they'll be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. All the best to you and your family, Gilli. No matter what happens, you have your daughter still, you know?
Why don't you write about it in your blag?

I seriously hope they catch the momofukus and let 'em dangle!

Good to hear that at least charges were filed and the culprits have a price on their slimey heads. Hope your daughter and her friend are recovering as well as possible, Gilli!

Thanks for your good wishes guys - both my daughter and her boyfriend are on the mend but she will have a permanent scar on her forehead and it will take some time for them both to get over it mentally.

The good news is that from the article on the website some people have come forward anonymously and given the name and address of the guy that did it. Although he and his brother are on the run both the British and Swedish embassy are looking for them, so fingers crossed they get them.

Or at least not this particular part of Thailand. I hope these scumbags get what's coming to them, Gilli.

Any further developments?

Thank you for asking yes there are. As you are aware i posted the link to the island newspaper website. (see above). I sent them a letter and they did an article on the attack. Because of this several island residents have come forward with information - not only the guys full name but also his Facebook details so we have a photo too!! Someone else has given the address he is hiding at to my daughter who has passed it onto the British Embassy. She had a letter from them this week saying they are flying a representative from their offices in Bangkok to the island to speak to the local police.

So fingers crossed! Even if nothing comes of it im glad they havnt let it drop.

That sounds like good news Gilli. Best of luck with securing a prosecution.
