Phi Phi News 2012

Phi Phi News 2012 Monday 10th July 
The Phuket Gazette reports that there is still no official verdict for the probable poisoning death cases of Noémi Bélanger, and her sister Audrey Bélanger on the island of Phi Phi on Friday 15th June 2012.

Col Boontawee has refuted the allegation by the Canadian media that there has been a cover up. “The official autopsy results have not been released yet. We are continuing to contact the Forensic Institute of Ramathibodi Hospital in Bangkok for the final results. What we had been informed of were just the unofficial results, which do not include all the details,” he told the Gazette.

Col Boontawee told reporters that, unlike most  normal autopsies done where the police ask for a specific series of tests, the police did not specific any individual tests to be carried out. “We basically asked them to test for everything,” he said. This all inclusive request will take time to create results in Thailand.


Phi Phi News 2012 Monday 9th July

Phi Phi News 2012 Friday 22nd June 
Lt. Col. Jongrak Pimthong told The Associated Press that they are looking for 30-year-old Portuguese national Luciano Tinto who was seen on CCTV camera at 1.10 am escorting the Belangers sisters back to their room. It is believed he may have been the last person to see the girls alive. The Police are still working on the presumption of death by poisoning and there were no signs of robbery or fighting to make them believe and sinister reason.  Luciano Tinto was staying at the same hotel as the Belangers sisters.

Phi Phi News 2012 Sunday 17th June 
Pol.Maj.Gen.Jamroon Ruenrom- commissioner of Krabi police oversaw the forensic investigation of Noémi Bélanger, and her sister Audrey Bélanger who dies on Phi Phi Island on Friday 15th June and concluded that deaths were not the result of violence. The only other significant find in the room was Ibuprofen the anti-inflammatory drug. He also stated that there would be a further autopsy at the Royal Thai Police hospital in Bangkok.


Phi Phi News 2012 Friday 15th June
In the tragic and recent events of last Friday 15th June, Noémi Bélanger, 25, and her sister Audrey Bélanger, 20, from Canada were found dead in the hotel room on Phi Phi Island. After going out for a drink in the evening they returned to their room but never made it out again. The cleaning maid knocked on their door at the Phi Phi Twin Palm Resort when they were due to check out and when it became clear that they weren't coming out. There was no reply but there are reports inferring the maid could smell something wasn't right.

After obtaining a key they entered the room and found the 2 sisters inside with large amounts of vomit and faeces. There was evidence of bleeding and their nails had turned black, probably caused by internal bleeding. Other distressing signs were traces of blood on the women's face. These early signs infer that the sisters died from poisoning. This was according to Dr Pornthep Siriwanarangsan, head of the Disease Control Department.

After an inspection by the local police the bodies were  transferred to the pier and then onto Krabi Town, the provincial capital.

Dr Komkrit Phukrittayakami, director of Krabi Hospital, said that from the initial inspection probable causes of death are likely to be contaminated food. A proper autopsy would be needed to see if it were seafood, mushrooms or chemical substances.
