Canadian murdered in Yonghe


#1727

I wonder why they would think they could get away with it?


#1728

Why does anyone think they can get away with anything?

People are thick as shit.


#1729

I don’t know if we’ll ever hear it, but it would be great to hear the truth instead of getting our info from Taiwan English News.


#1730

To make matters worse, there is no double jeapoardy in Taiwan jurisdiction, just a Kaftakesque endless stream of trials and retrials… until whoever is locked in or suicides/is killed, preferably the latter.


#1731

Yep complete madness , hsinchu trio case being the classic example.


#1732

It’s just odd when people come up with a highly complex murder plan involving dismemberment. A stab in the back and then running away would surely be less risky.

Maybe this forum could have a vote on whether we should ban the Kman and his terrible writing.


#1735

Amazing that a Taiwan-Canadian joint national would turn on a fellow Canadian. Not very cool.


#1736

For something premeditated by two people, it sounds like of the dumbest things ever. I mean, very often when I hear about this kind of crime it turns out that the murder was unexpected, maybe an accident or caused by use if drugs/alcohol or whatever, then the murderer panicked and tried to hide the body in the dumbest way possible.

Here we have two people who planned a murder together, committed it and proceeded to try to hide the body in the dumbest way possible…it’s fascinating, in some sense. (I believe this happened when I was not in Taiwan, so I may be missing some details, I just read the K-Man News article above)


#1737

I still can’t believe all 3 attackers carried smartphones to the crime scene (one was actually a lookout for the other two). And then these three geniuses left the victim’s cellphone in his pocket when they threw his torso into the riverbed.

I mean, who needs detectives? Sounds like the mobile providers could have solved this murder.


#1738

Maybe they were potheads or something?


#1739

how did they do everything they did (which now includes sitting around and getting Ryan drunk) in that short time frame? Something is off.


#1740

Reefer madness?


#1741

Didn’t the victim take money out of an ATM? Looks like he was a buyer and not a seller like the prestigious Taiwan News reports.


#1742

I think that was a reward for his dog.


#1743

Coincidence. Dog was lost almost two years ago. In Yilan. By the sea.

Actually, apparently, he had taken a total of 300 thousand NTD in a few days.

And he was rumored to be planning to escape The Island, which is the most plausible motivation for his demise IMHO.


#1744

That’s the problem when you watch too much TV crime series.


#1745

Try a good high alcohol beer!


#1746

And yet…you take fanarical (sic) glee in doing the same, albeit with words, not machetes.
