Brit backpacker Theo Bailey, believed to be in his 30s, was sadly found lifeless in a shallow water drainage ditch the following day outside the Roctapus diving centre on Koh Tao Island

 

A British backpacker has been found dead in a drain whilst on vacation in Thailand.

 

Theo Bailey, believed to be 31, went missing while on a pub crawl with his long-term girlfriend, Chantal Xerri. It is believed the pair got drunk with other holidaymakers on the island of Koh Tao on March 18 before he vanished. He was sadly found lifeless in a shallow water drainage ditch the following day outside the Roctapus diving centre. Police believe he had been in the drain for several hours before he was located. His phone is said to have also been missing.

 

The couple were pictured laughing while drinking from buckets of alcohol at a local bar. Theo and Chantal had empty shot glasses in one picture while in another, the man had removed his top and photobombed another group. Others at the same event were seen inhaling nitrous oxide, or hippy crack, and there was a raucous drag performance, with drunken tourists joining in dancing provocatively.

However, Theo, who had been with his partner Chantal, a teacher from Chelmsford, Essex, went missing at some point during the boozy night out. Tragically, he was found dead the next afternoon. The authorities said that the case "was still open", however, no arrests have been made at this time.

Thai police said they are waiting for the post-mortem results. Theo's devastated partner Chantal, who is listed as a teaching assistant working for Teaching Personnel based in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, posted several tributes online to her partner. She said: "This is probably the hardest post I will ever have to do in my life. Last week, my best friend became an angel.

Because it's Tao it'll be suspicious but could be as simple as fell and hit head on a curb while drunk

It most likely is.

Perhaps Namsod, the monster son of the headman of Sairee Beach is back. He appeared to have been banished, after his serial killing became international news, after the deaths of Hanna and David. Always felt bad for those innocent Burmese lads who were framed for that crime. 

 

The reality is, when you have amassed a fortune into the hundreds of millions of dollars, from illegal land sales, you are above the law. Any and all laws.

 

Dark Tao. Visit at your own peril. 

I did a dive master course there in the 2000's, there was a feeling of connection and friendship among the diving community. But things change fast in developing Thailand. That diving season actually ended with me catching dengue fever.
