    The fact that the 2009 deaths remain unsolved and the victims were also young women is likely to lead to intense media coverage".

    Doohh!!!! Journalistic excellence..........

    in other word don't watch this space, as nobody cares and it will not be attempted to be solved....

    Or more gently the journalist is looking for an outcry to help fix the system...???? Think Like an Asian???

    Both incidents happened on Phi Phi, same guesthouse.
    Bodies taken to Krabi.
    Media speculation is food poisoning, but thats all it is speculation.
    2009 incident still a mystery. Chiang Mai similar, still not solved.
    And where the hell was Biggles.....?....when you needed him last Saturday....?

    I think its more that they have been poisoned rather than food poisoning. From another newspaper report.....“There was a lot of vomit in the room, and both bodies showed similar signs [of trauma]. They had skin lesions and it seemed that they had bled from the gums. Also, their fingernails and toenails were blue,”

    This was at a newer hotel afaik, not the re-named Laleena GH. Symptoms are similar to snake bite, but I find it odd that 2 girls could have a snake in bedroom without having screamed the place down.

    Chemical poisoning is my best guess, same same Chiang Mai Downtown Inn deaths. Improper application of pesticides.

    Thai TV aired a lengthy report last night. They even showed the bodies in Krabi mortuary, not once, but twice! Autopsies are to be conducted and with symptoms exactly as described below, it is possible they'll prove inconclusive if bed-bug/termite chemicals are responsible.

    The pesticide Chlorpyrifos may be responsible for both CM and PP's previous unexplained deaths...

    Chlorpyrifos is actually a neurotoxin and ingestion can cause a disruption in the transmission of nerve impulses. This can result in dizziness, headaches, loose motions, increased urination and salivation. When the ingestion is excessive, it could lead to paralysis, convulsions and even death. Chemicals like these are endocrine disruptors and their effects on the body can be disastrous as they also interfere with the regulated functioning of the hormonal system, making things run awry in the body.

    Yes, when the use of products like this are heavily restricted in Western countries, SEAsian, SAmerica and Africa become major markets. DOW actually manufacture the stuff locally, or in India ... I believe it's also widely used as a herbicide.

    Noemi Belanger And Audrey Belanger Investigation: Portuguese Men Sought After Gruesome Hotel Deaths


    A medical team from Phi Phi Island Hospital place a body on a stretcher at the Phi Phi Palm Residence Hotel on Phi Phi Island on Friday, June 15, 2012. A tiny Quebec town near the border with Maine is still reeling after two of its residents were found dead halfway around the world. Police in Phuket, Thailand say it doesn't appear sisters Noemi and Audrey Belanger were murdered. They believe the two young women may have been accidentally poisoned while vacationing in the southeast Asian country.

    PHI PHI ISLAND: -- Thai investigators are looking for two Portuguese men, who were seen on closed-circuit cameras escorting Noemi and Audrey Belanger back to their hotel room, according to the Bangkok Post.

    They may have been the last people to see the Quebec sisters alive.

    Noemi, 26, and Audrey, 20, were found dead at the Phi Phi Palms Residence Hotel on the popular resort island on June 15.

    "Police determined they were dead for about 24 hours prior to that and only found a lot of vomit in the room," Lt. Col. Jongrak Pimthong told The Associated Press.

    "There were neither signs of fighting, nor robbery, but we found many kinds of over-the-counter-drugs, including ibuprofen, which can cause serious effects on the stomach."

    Initially, local authorities suspected the girls had been poisoned, as findings seemed to suggest a 'toxic substance'.

    The Post is reporting that the CCTV footage captures a man taking the sisters back to their room, between 1:10 and 1:14 am. The newspaper identifies the man as 30-year-old Portuguese national Luciano Tinto, who was staying at the same hotel as the Belangers.

    Citing a source close to the investigation, The Post reports the sisters were spotted at various night spots on Phi Phi island alongside Tinto and another unidentified Portuguese national.

    The Belangers grew up in Pohenegamook near the Maine border in Eastern Quebec, where they worked in the family shop.

    Town mayor Louise Labonte described them to the Toronto Star as adventurous and full of promise.

    “We lost two brilliant young women,” the mayor told the newspaper Sunday. “It’s of course very difficult for the family and everyone here.”

    Relatives of the sisters arrived in Thailand earlier this week. The women's bodies are reportedly back in Canada, according to CBC News.

    In the same report, their uncle, Eric Belanger, told the CBC he wasn't certain when the family will learn the results of toxicology tests conducted in Thailand.

    Thai news reports of 'magic mushroom' over-dose are a remote possibility as is some suggestion of impropriety by the Portuguese men ... yet these girls were found DEAD 24 hours after last known social contact(s), and with flu/gastro-type medicines in their room. The latter suggests they were already aware of 'symptoms'.

    Autopsy results on Canadian sisters ‘inconclusive’

    PHUKET: Krabi Police today announced that the autopsies conducted by Thai authorities on the bodies of Canadian sisters Audrey and Noemi Belanger failed to find any traces of drugs.

    The lack of discovery as to what caused the women’s deaths now forces police to follow other leads in their investigation, Krabi Provincial Police Deputy Commander Boontawee Toraksa said today.
