David is currently awaiting trial, and being detained in Phuket Prison, for the murder of another Hungarian, Peter Reisz, at the beginning of the year.

Following information received from a private detective in Hungary, police on Samui dug through the floor of the basement of a house owned by David in the Rock Samui Resort in Bhoput on Sunday (April 21).

Three metres down they found a skeleton. Investigators believe that he may have been killed with a hoe.

Surat Thani Provincial Police Commander Maj Gen Kiattipong Khaosum-ang told The Phuket News this morning (April 23), “A Hungarian detective, Ferenc Chilko, came to Thailand searching for Laszlo Csapai, 42, who had been missing since February 2011. He was hired by Mr Csapai’s wife to locate her husband.”

Mr Csapai has been described by Hungarian newspapers as a billionaire in the retail business. Police believe that Moshe David first came to Thailand in 2008, while Mr Csapai arrived a year later.

“Moshe David was a suspect in this case. We called him in for questioning because records showed he had used Mr Csapai’s credit card for himself, spending about B200,000.

“He said Mr Csapai had given him permission to use the card but he had no idea where Mr Csapai was. Lacking more evidence we could not arrest him.

“The Hungarian detective eventually located another man, Mata Isawan, thought to be in league with David. Isawan was questioned in Hungary, where he told the detective that he had been forced to help David bury the body.

“That seems to be the same as the situation with [Lajos Gyorgy Kvalka], arrested in connection with the more recent case involving David in Phuket.”

Kvalka has admitted helping David dispose of Mr Reisz’s body but denied being a party to the murder.

Gen Kiattipong continued, “The skeleton was in a hole three to four metres deep under the basement of the house. It had been covered over with cement. It took us from morning until well into the afternoon to dig down to the skeleton.

“We have sent the bones to the Institute of Forensic Medicine in Bangkok so that they can try to identify the dead person.

“We really want to get Isawan to Thailand for questioning and we are cooperating with Hungarian police.

“Moshe David was a partner in Rock Samui Resort & Villas project. There are three or four houses for sale or rent in the project. It seems they could not be sold.

“We have also discovered that the development company had Thai nominee shareholders. We are collecting information about them.”

The mobile phone number for the Rock Samui Resort has been turned off and the resort’s website has been taken down but The Phuket News has discovered a blog posting on a related site, posted on January 17, that cautions people against buying any of the houses there.

It reads, “The group of houses advertised for sale or for rent on belong to David Moshe / Gabor Nemeth, the man who admitted to killing his business partner Peter Reisz.

“It is important for any prospective customer considering renting any of these houses on Koh Samui, to understand where they are staying, and whom they are financing.”

The post was purportedly uploaded by David himself.
