The 39 year old tourist was found dead with his head bound in a green plastic bag and red duct tape in a suspected sex game gone wrong, as reported by The Sun.

According to Hannover police in Germany, Christopher Faust failed to turn up at work on May 16 sparking concern among his friends and relatives.

Mr Fasut, a DJ, was found dead in Krabi on Monday, June 11. It appears the man had taken a ‘secret holiday’ and checked into the luxury villas on June 7.

According to hotel staff, he was last seen alive in the morning on June 9 and ordered breakfast to be sent to his room. This was the same day that the hotel’s housekeepers say they saw a “chubby Thai woman” leaving his villa.

When they checked his room on  Tuesday morning they found his naked body on the bed.

Police now believe that the “chubby Thai woman” was probably a local sex worker but police have been unable to contact her at this stage.

In the Sun report, Lieutenant Colonel Chavalit Petchsripia, from the Ao Nang Police, says they had initially written off the death as suicide but would now investigate further.

The body was sent to the forensic institute in Surat Thani to identify the cause of death. Police say they found two half-full glasses of water on a table leading to their belief that there had been at least two in the room at some stage.

Police also found a receipt for a roll of red duct tape. The roll was still attached to the tape that had been wrapped around the plastic bag over his head. Police say the man’s valuables – his laptop, passport, credit cards and wallet – were still in the room and that there no sign of a struggle.

A spokesman for Hannover Police say they believe Christopher had “shaved his head and beard’’ and matched an image of Christoper when he had his picture taken at Thai immigration.

Weather warning for southern and eastern Thailand | The Thaiger

Five day forecasts for Phuket, Pattaya and Koh Samui below

The Thai Meteorological Department has issued a weather warning to alert people to approaching heavy rains and strong winds in the South.

The TMD predicts more rain from from today up to July 21 in the Southern and Eastern regions due to a tropical depression approaching westward from the Pacific, which is likely to gain strength and move through The Philippines into the northern South China Sea, and the strengthening southwest monsoon that prevails over the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand.

“Outbreaks of heavy rain are also possible for those areas. People should be aware of severe conditions that may cause flash floods and heavy water runoff.”

The warning says that waves in the Andaman Sea are likely to be 2-3 metres high and, in the Gulf, about 2 metres high. In storm areas, they will reach 3 metres.

The affected areas listed by the TMD are Nakhon Nayok, Chachoengsao, Chon Buri, Rayong, Chanthaburi and Trat in the East, Chumphon, Surat Thani, Nakhon Si Thammarat and Phatthalung in the South’s east coast, Ranong, Phang Nga, Phuket, Krabi, Trang and Satun in the west coast.

Two new hotels are on the way for Krabi under the Avani Hotels & Resorts brand.

Avani Hotels & Resorts have signed up two new resort hotels in Krabi, marking the brand’s continued growth in Thailand. The existing resorts will undergo renovations to bring the properties in line with Avani standards which offer guests “buzzy social spaces and stylish guest rooms”.

The two hotels will be fully rebranded as Avani+ Koh Lanta Krabi Resort, set to launch by the middle of next year, and Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort, which will open its doors under the new branding later this year in time for the forthcoming high season.

“We are extremely excited to include Krabi in our portfolio as the Avani brand expands further through such agreements with trusted partners within Thailand,” said Javier Pardo, Vice President of Operations for Avani Hotels & Resorts.

Avani+ Koh Lanta Krabi Resort will boast 83 rooms nestled within wooded parklands, offering sea views from its gentle hills with direct access to a secluded white sand beach adjacent to the renowned Klong Dao Beach. The island is just 70 km south of Krabi International Airport and can be accessed via a 15 minute ferry crossing from the mainland.

Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort will overlook the popular Ao Nang Beach with vistas of the nearby  limestone cliffs and sea views punctuated by spectacular islands on the horizon. The 178 key property will feature contemporary design, new dining experience and an AvaniSPA relaxation facility.

Located just 35 minutes from the Krabi International Airport, guests can easily escape to the popular Ao Nang or Railay beach as well as the outlying islands while staying at the resort.

The newly rebranded resorts will bring the total number of Avani properties in Thailand to nine after Avani Sukhumvit Bangkok, set to open in July 2019.

Green sea turtle found dead in a fish trap off Krabi national park | The Thaiger

Officers from the Nopparat Thara Beach – Phi Phi Islands National Park, yesterday (Monday) removed a metal fish trap from the sea near Koh Met after some fishermen smuggled the trap into the sea. They found a dead green sea turtle trapped inside.

The team had to use a bouyancy bag to rescue the turtle body stuck in the fish trap that was 3 x 2 metres in size. The recovery took several hours. The sea turtle was fully grown. They sent the body of the dead turtle to the PMBC to check its age.

Paranya Pantajit, a scuba diving instructor from Scuba Expert in Ao Nang, says that 2 days ago she was informed by a foreign scuba friend about the dead turtle stuck in a fish trap near Koh Met so she went for a dive and found the dead turtle in the trap. However, she couldn’t take the turtle and trap up on her own so she contacted the Nopparat Thara Beach – Phi Phi Islands National Park officers for some help.

She said that earlier her scuba diving friend posted a video of the dead sea turtle stuck inside the fish trap while the trap was laid along the coral reef of Koh Met. He reported it to the national park twice to remove the trap but they didn’t do anything until the third report was made.
