Fast Arrests In Taiwan Gambling Murder Case (update)

But the chauffeur remains at large

Police in the Taiwanese city of Tanchung have used camera surveillance footage from a number of sources to quickly track down two men believed to be complicit in the kidnapping and murder of wealthy gambling and business entrepreneur Shih Chia-chin (57) (see previous InfoPowa report).
Barely a day after Shih's body was found in a ditch in a remote area a week after he disappeared, police investigators arrested two men in the southern part of Taiwan, identified as a 31-year-old suspect with the family name Lin and another surnamed Cheng.
A police spokesman said that the two are believed to be accomplices who abandoned Shih's Mercedes-Benz in Tainan following the kidnapping and murder.
Police are now on the trail of Shih's chauffeur, Hsieh Yuan-hsin, who fled Taiwan with a false passport on a flight to Thailand after failing in an attempt to cash ransom money deposited by Shih's family in a Taiwan bank.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
