RIP David Miller and Hanna Witheridge

The murder of the two British tourists on Koh Tao was a shock to everyone. Such a beautiful and generally trouble free island with thousands of tourists visiting every year.

My heart goes out to the family and friends of these young people who were in the prime of their lives.

The small community here is devastated by these attacks and is in a state of mourning. Last night a candlelight vigil was held on the beach and flowers were laid on the popular and beautiful Sairee Beach where this gruesome event took place.

There is much speculation and miss reporting surrounding the event and the events that followed. As usual there were many of us enjoying the entertainment on Sairee Beach that night and the police have their work cut out but it would appear they are doing all they can and eliminating as many as possible as quickly as possible. All we can do is let them do their job and hope they find the killer soon. Koh Tao is NOT on lock down and ferries are running to and from the island as normal.



Rest in Peace David and Hanna

  1. wow - sounds really grim from the newspapers etc here. Always worse on a seemingly idyllic island. Still following you avidly, John from Hereford
