Inquest hears how Hells Angel was murdered in Pattaya

An inquest in Sydney has heard how a former Hells Angel died after being tied to a chair and beaten to death in Pattaya.

Notorious underworld figure and Pattaya expat Wayne Schneider was abducted by masked men from his house in the resort town on November 30th 2015.

His naked body was found a few days later buried in a shallow grave in jungle in Sattahip province.

In February, Pattaya Provincial Court sentenced Antonio Bagnato, 28, to death for the murder of Schneider.

Today, an inquest held at Glebe Coroner’s Court in Sydney revealed details about Schneider’s murder.

Acting state coroner Teresa O’Sullivan said Schneider was murdered and that he died from a blunt force injury to the head. Ligature marks were also found on Schneider’s body.

The inquest heard how Bagnato, along with three other men, had abducted Schneider due a long standing debt.

Thai police told their Australian counterparts how Schneider’s blood was found in a property rented by Bagnato.

The inquest also heard about the criminal backgrounds of both Schneider and Bagnato.

In 2006, Schneider was named one of New South Wales’ 10 most-wanted fugitives.

Heavily involved with the Hells Angels, Schneider had fled Australia for Dubai in 2012 after Australian police raided two meth labs he was connected with.

He then moved to Pattaya but regularly travelled to Dubai to visit family.

Bagnato, another career criminal, is also suspected in the murder of Sydney man Brad Dillon in 2015.
