Three Male Thais Killed – Gunfight at Full Moon Party Haad Rin Beach April 2004 Koh Phangan Island

Gunfight Full Moon Party Koh Phangan

It is indeed true what the jungle drums were telling after the last Full Moon Party in April 2004 at Haad Rin beach on the south coast of Koh Phangan Island. The rumor on the street was that there was a gunfight early morning at Paradise Bungalows! And now it’s official and there’s no more doubt about it anymore!

Three young male Thais from Bangkok got shot in a gunfight early morning around 6 a.m. at Paradise Bungalows. Directly at the beach surrounded by thousands of tourist enjoying the world famous Full Moon Party on Koh Phangan Paradise Island.

Reliable sources are saying that a group of young Thai people came down from Bangkok to celebrate the Full Moon Party at Haadrin beach. Later that night one of the girls from Bangkok got bothered by a local Thai from Koh Samui. Her boyfriend from Bangkok went in between and he ended up having heavy arguments with the local Thai from Koh Samui. The guy from Bangkok must have called that other guys mum a slut because the local Thai from Koh Samui was so pissed, that he directly went back home and took the gun from his daddy. Came back to Paradise Bungalows and aimed his target – finally killing three young Thais from Bangkok who were unarmed!

Later on that morning around 7 a.m. the local Thai Police shut down the Full Moon Party and that happened so far as I can remember for the first time!

      Shut down the FMP! Still the bars should be open and play music for the dopeys on the Island, and the Half Moon party should still be there. The only prob that phangan has is this party, the beach is SOOOO dirty! And what the ***** did the dude mean whit “no **** “the beach” tourist” ..They are all the beach tourist, you and me 2 !

      To the unknown user.. You should be careful what you say if you knew Thia’s well.

      Thank you you threats. So that everyone can see what you are truly like. More concern with a bad reputation and so loss of interest/ revenue. Afraid that maybe people will start to listen to the experiences of others. Did you really think that you could continue to take money, treat them badly and this will not come back to you. How simple life is for some.

      This may result in people seeing the reality. Seeing beyond the Palm trees the Full Moon. Such a beautiful image in my mind, oh no I forgot. I have see the reality…

      Seeing the thousands of wasted people being sold buckets of cheap booze, fighting, buying fake drugs and maybe some good ones if they are lucky. Lucky enough to swallow them before the undercover cop arrests them and ends their Island Dream holiday. The Guys pissing in the sea while drunk lovers romantically make love in the warmer than normal water of picturesque . How many days does Hat Rinn stink of piss after Full Moon? Beautiful.

      This is the reality, most are too wasted to remember what the beach looks like in the morning. This is a reflection of what is in your soul Mr Unknown user with very bad grammar and punctuation. Destruction of nature and humanity for the all important Thai baht, dollar dollar bill. Money, money, money.

      Money is not going to buy you anything when you are before Buddha. Think about your ways and make a change before it is to late for you. Maybe you get reborn as a chicken, you never know you might end up being grilled and severed to some tourist on Hatt Rin beach as a nibble between buckets.

      Buddha bless you

      The reliable source is the thai newspaper “Thai Rat” – they’ve published an article about the shooting a few days after the full moon party. That’s where i got the info from ! there’s no doubt about the story – believe me 🙂

    Slightly different version if you click
    here. According to a
    Police lieutenant “Theerapol Kanha” but who knows, the writers may have made up his name. Anyone heard of him on Phangan?

      hello my anonymous friend 🙂

      first thanks a lot for reminding me that these Thai gun shooters originally came from Koh Samui ! So … the article is updated and sorry that it took a while but i’m sort of a busy man most of the times.

      well … you ask who i am ?? my name is becki beckmann 🙂 where i get the stories from ?? some i see with my own eyes here on this island. some stories are brought to me through friends and some other stories i receive over the “jungle drums system” .. how i call it ! you know mouth by mouth propaganda 🙂

      but before i start posting FALSE stories here on this website i always make sure that it has TRUE content in it … just for your information !

      full moon parties ?? how many did i go ?? well .. hardly can remember to be honest with you my anonymous friend 🙂 but let’s start calculating a bit …. i live here on Koh Phangan since 1992 … now is 2004 … makes 12 years … with 12 parties per year … a total of 144 parties ! so i haven’t been to all of them but would think about 100 full moon parties would make an approximate number !

      well .. some news might really be shocking and also be a really bad reputation for this “paradise” island ! but one thing i can tell you for sure … i don’t make up these stories in my mind. IT’S ALL REALLY ACTUALLY HAPPENING HERE !

      like it or not .. eat it or not … fight it or not 🙂

      all the best
      becki

      p.s. i will not shut up my mouth ! i will keep posting what is going here on this special place 🙂

    People must remember and realize that this ‘party’ is on the same day as buddhas birthday, day of enlightenment and passing into nirvanna.

    I have personally been attacked, hit over the head with a bottle of vodka and ended up with 4 badly needed stitches.

    The party is getting progressively more dangerous. Believe it or not but people may find dancing next to the police a common occurance. Drugs and drunkedness leads to violence.
