Passing of Fredy Künzle of Switzerland
By Matthew Caulfield

Ever since Fredy Künzle's death was announced by Angelo Rulli in the
16.05.05 MMD and it was revealed by Frank & Shirley Nix in the 16.05.13
MMD that Fredy was murdered, I have been expecting more news that would
answer the who and why of this horrible event.

Yesterday I learned that a 39-year-old Dutchman identified by the media
as Ronnie W. was arrested in Thailand near Bangkok for the murder.  He
is to be extradited to the canton of St. Gall, Switzerland.

Ronnie W. was apparently travelling in Switzerland and was offered a
place to stay by Fredy Künzle in exchange for work around Fredy's home
and musical museum in Lichtensteig, Switzerland.

It is a sad shame that Fredy paid for his kindness to a visitor with
his life.
