Police Seek Clues To Death Of French Woman On Koh Samui

Police are trying to determine if a French woman found dead in the sea in Koh Samui died of an accident or was murdered.

Isabel Bailey, 42, had suffered a skull fracture and bruising when her body was pulled from the water around mid-day from Thong Kate Bay. Authorities estimate the fully clothed woman had been dead several hours.

A friend who came to the beach after learning of the gruesome discovery said Bailey, a student at a language school on Koh Samui, had left that morning on her motorbike to visit a waterfall.

The location of that motorbike may very well shed light on what happened to the woman.

Police refused to speculate on the possibility she was killed or whether she could have fallen and hit her head on a rock at the waterfall with the body washing into the ocean.
