The post-mortem report on David Miller, a British tourist killed on Koh Tao Island, has revealed that his death was the result of blows to the head and drowning, Pol Col Dr Pornchai Sutheerakune, commander of Institute of Forensic Medicine, said on Wednes
Water was found in Miller’s lungs, his body showed traces of being dragged and there were wounds on the back of his hands, Pornchai said. The findings indicate that that he fought with his attackers, was beaten and then drowned, the doctor said.
The autopsy on the body of Hannah Witheridge, whose body was found near Miller’s, showed she also had trauma to the head. There were also traces of recent sexual activity and sperm was found in her vagina and anus. The doctors will use the sperms to try and identify the culprit and compare the DNA samples collected from the bodies with those from the suspects.
