Investigators have no theory to explain Ms Dallemagne's unexpected stopover on Koh Tao on her way back to the mainland.
An autopsy was performed in Surat Thani Hospital and later by the Institute of Forensic Medicine Police Hospital, Bangkok, and Elise was cremated 14 days later.I cannot accept why my daughter should have killed herself.'She was normal in the last conversation and no signs of depression were visible.'I don't know why she would have booked a transfer to Bangkok and then went into the jungle to commit suicide.'I am devastated by events. We just want more information.'My daughter had been travelling for two and a half years in India, Australia and New Zealand and always back again to Thailand.'She lived there for months with Guru Raaman Andreas from Germany and two female friends.' The death on Koh Tao is the latest in a number of cases involving foreigners.British backpackers Hannah Witheridge and David Miller were murdered there in 2014.Eight days later locals living near the island's idyllic Tanote Bay found Elise's body after becoming suspicious of a monitor lizard going back and forth into the jungle.They followed the animal and discovered that it had been feeding on Elise's remains, which were found among rocks behind the Tanote Family Bay Resort.
