Kirsty Jones Murder Case Closed After 20 Years

Kirsty Jones Murder Case Closed After 20 Years

A 20-year investigation into the murder of Welsh backpacker Kirsty Jones closed on Sunday after the statute of limitation ended.

Miss Jones was 23-years-old when she was raped and strangled at a guesthouse in Chiang Mai back in August 2000. Her killer is now a free man and can’t be prosecuted after escaping justice for two decades.

Kirsty arrived in Chiang Mai following time in Singapore and Malaysia during her gap year.

After spending an evening out with friends, she was attacked in the early hours of August 10 in her room.

The case has been shrouded in mystery and conspiracy theories ever since, starting only days after the body was discovered.

Kirsty’s mother Sue Jones said: “It is a really sad time for us as a family.

“We have worked hard over all of these years to keep the Thai authorities interested in Kirsty’s case and to ensure that the investigation continued to try to identify the persons responsible for her murder.

“Kirsty was a bright, intelligent, independent young woman who had the world at her feet. Kirsty has gone from our lives, whilst her killer remains at large.

“Had they been brought to justice the sadness and emptiness would remain the same but it may have brought us some closure.

“I hope we have done her proud in trying to get justice.”

Two of the men, aged 20 and 22, died at the scene with a third man, 29, dying a short time later at Sriprajan Hospital.

Truck driver Sakon Wutthichai, 48, told police he was towing the bus to Ayutthaya after it ran out of gas.

Both Wutthichai and the bus driver, Nakhon Srimuang, have been charged with reckless driving with police considering further charges.
