What is Thai Prison Like

What is Thai Prison Like

On our true crime podcast, we investigate how Lisa Marie Smith managed to flee a Thai prison and evade law enforcement for almost two decades, despite living in plain sight.

Until a random event brought her back under the scrutiny of the law.

In 2008, signs bearing cryptic messages started appearing in Sydney, raising speculation she may have slipped back into the country undetected.

The street art, written on plaster and wood, and posted on trees and the sides of homes in inner city Newtown, hint Lisa may have returned to Australia via Ireland.

One of the messages points out that she was a fugitive from the "Bangkok Hilton" before cryptically adding: "McGuigan? Travels Eire 2 Australia as Though Invisible".

British police believe Smith could now have an Irish surname, which might explain the McGuigan reference.

According to Wikipedia: “True crime is a nonfiction literary, podcast, and film genre in which the author examines an actual crime and details the actions of real people associated with and affected by criminal events.

By 2011, police appear to drop ball again. Because the media asks police about the plaques dedicated to Lisa.

``I haven't heard of anything like that and if it was happening I reckon I would have,'' a senior Sydney police officer told The Daily Telegraph in 2011.

Police appear to no have abandoned the chase for Lisa. So she can breathe easy for now.

It’s soon revealed police had known where she was for at least 10 years.
