The American pedophile Jackson Hall, 24, has been arrested after he fled Bangkok to Koh Samui.
Hall – wanted in the US on a string of charges and who had been hiding out in Thailand for nearly a year – was apprehended at the port of Nathorn last night at 8pm on the holiday island.
He is believed to have stolen the identity of a man called Tyler Doran Smith – he had entered Thailand last October 6th at Aranyaprathet, Sa Kaew province using that name.
He is believed to have had English teaching jobs in both Khon Kaen and Rayong.
Immigration chief Natthathorn Phrohsunthorn said that police in Bangkok had discovered that Hall was living with Nittaya Beetge – an agent who helps find English teachers – in the Phasi Charoen area of Bangkok.
When police went there they missed Hall by a day and were told by Nittaya that he had fled to Samui. Contact was made with Samui immigration and Hall was arrested and is now being held on the island.
Nittaya’s estranged husband Darron Beetge now in South Africa with his six year old son told Thaivisa that he felt relieved and vindicated that the information that he had been able to supply in the case had proved to be correct.
Thaivisa has followed the case in detail since a report was made earlier in the year that Nittaya’s life may be in danger.
According to Mr Beetge his ex and Hall have had a child together, their baby daughter born in August.
Hall is believed to have worked as an English teacher in both Khon Kaen and Rayong, said police.
Claims have been made that Nittaya aided and abetted Hall during his time in Thailand.Facebook.
