Thai police named him as Christopher Paul Neil after a worldwide appeal by Interpol using reconstructed images of his face.
I blogged about him only some days ago when interpol decided to circulate photos of him to the public to help in the search.
How they painstakingly managed to piece back the digitally altered images is beyond me. Bloody Germans. They're wizards when it comes to technology! The reconstructed photos were posted on Interpol's website.
Turns out the ruse worked.
Three days after Interpol published the pictures, Christopher Neil fled his home in South Korea and flew to Bangkok. Thai police believe he has not yet crossed the border, but all neighbouring countries have been notified just in case he gives them the slip.
What is really scary is that he was an English teacher and had all the access to children he could have ever wanted or needed.
Police have been hunting the bastard for three whole years, ever since German police found online pictures of him abusing under-age Asian boys.
And yes, it would be Asians. After all, they're plentiful and expendable anyway.
