A British man was killed in Chiang Mai this week. Police found the body of former teacher David Crisp, 56, in his home on Thursday.

Scotsman yesterday reported that detectives in Chiang Mai believe Mr Crisp’s death was the result of some kind of tribal killing.

Mr Crisp’s throat had been cut, his face had been smothered with a cloth and his head had been beaten several times.

From Scotsman:

Detectives said the ceiling light in his home office had been smashed – a sign which they said suggested the murderer was a member of the Shan, a hill tribe from the Burma-Thai border.

Police colonel Pattipol Serichaichana said: "Shan believe if they destroy the light the spirits will not see them and they will be harder to catch. The superstition has remained since electricity generators were introduced with difficulty into some hill tribe villages."

Sad news.
