Murder in Paradise
47 min • Crime • 2015
In the early hours of 15th September, two British backpackers, Hannah Witheridge and David Miller were found dead, brutally beaten just yards from their hotel in Koh Tao, Thailand. A paradise attracting thousands of tourists every year, their deaths took to 13 the number of British visitors killed in Thailand over the last five years. There have been more since and it has been argued that authorities are so anxious to protect the tourist industry that deaths of Westerners often go unexplained or classed as suicides.
