Two months ago Sandy and I met this couple two times and ended up having dinner with a group of people that included them. They were seated next to us for the entire evening so spent a couple of hours chatting. They were volunteering at a couple of projects we know in Thailand. We thought he was quite odd and she seemed nice enough.
I got an e-mail an hour ago. The two of them were apparently into drugs. A few days ago, he stabbed and mutilated the woman. He was found hours and hours later completly out of it sitting on the edge of the bed where her corpse was neatly tucked under the covers.
I am still shaking from the news.
