Thailand: Yacht Owner Killed by Sea Robbers

The murder of a British yacht owner by thugs inshore Thailand, reported as British yachtsman 'beaten to death' by pirates off Thai coast:
A British man has been murdered aboard his yacht off the Thai coast, after his killers locked his wife in the cabin.

Malcolm Robertson, 64, was sailing with his wife, Linda, off Satun near the Thai-Malaysian border when three men are alleged to have clambered aboard and attacked them.
***
Thai police said that three fishermen, migrant workers from neighbouring Burma, had confessed.
Mr. Robertson had a blog from prior voyages.

My condolences to his wife and family.

UPDATE: Wife tells story.
