The body of Mr. Longfellow was found in his room, he had been stabbed several times. Police Lieutenant Anukul Nuket said Aldhouse was known for picking fights when drunk  and bragging that he is invincible.

Mr. Longfellow had gone on his motorbike to pick up his girlfriend Ooy from work at 1am. Ooy said he had a couple of drinks while waiting for her to finish her shift at around 2am.

Witnesses said that when Mr. Longfellow went to the toilet, the entrance was blocked by Aldhouse which resulted in a fight.  It was reported that bar staff broke up the fight and Mr. Longfellow took his girlfriend home. Aldhouse was believed to have followed Mr. Longfellow back to his hotel where another fight took place and Mr. Longfellow was fatally stabbed.

Aldhouse who had lived in Thailand for several years was known for his fighting ability and had been scheduled for to fight a long term Phuket resident and former Muay Thai World Champion Jomhod Kiatadisak, but had pulled out at the last minute due to injury.

According to a tourism website, police have a copy of Aldhouse’s passport and said that as he was not working, he may be running short of cash and may become increasingly desperate. Aldhouse has a long reputation for being a fighter and is now a murder suspect on the run. Friends of Mr. Longfellow, a US Marine, have said he was in Phuket following a combat injury sustained in Afghanistan.
