Bali prison escapee Shaun Davidson thought to

 be hiding out in Pattaya 

He asks people to share new Facebook fan


While we still don’t know if he’s hiding out in Pattaya as Thai police believe,the Facebook account widely believed to belong to Bali prison escapee Shaun Davidson was active over the weekend and again at 4pm today, when he accepted our friendship request.

The account with the name “Matthew Rageone Ridler (Shaun Rageone Davidson)” has even broadcast live from inside the notorious Balinese Kerobokan prison—where Davidson spent the last eleven months before making an epic daring escape by tunneling out on June 19 with three other inmates.

Over the weekend, we noticed that Davidson, whose nickname is “Rage,” shared his new fan page. The “Fans of Shaun Rageone Davidson – Australian escapee” page went live on Sunday afternoon and already has over 220 likes.

The “About” section says, “This page is to show support for all round good guy Shaun Davidson. Please post your well wishes to him and share this page to show him your support.”

Just two hours ago he shared the page to his friends again, urging all 2500 of them to “like and share” his fan page.

Both the account believed to be his personal one as well as the fan page are filled with messages from well-wishers, people that seem to know him personally, and many messages from adoring female fans.

Comments included: “Look at those eyes…blue steel…,” “I love the fuck out of you x,” and “You sexy xxx.”

Though Thai police suspect Davidson may be hiding out with his Muay Thai buddies or motorcycle gang in Pattaya, he checked in several times last week in Dubai.

On June 27, supposedly from a cruise ship to say, “I’m well out of any jurisdiction that can do anything to me. I’ll be chilling out here for a while, this place is amazing.”

And on June 26, he posted a photo of a fan of cash with the caption, “Rags to riches niggah I ain’t dumb I got 99 problems and a jail cell ain’t one.” One of his friends was kind enough to point out that the wodge of what appears to be Indonesian Rupiah only amounts to about USD100.

Despite the check-ins, many of his friends commented that the location identifiers were just to throw people off his trail.

Bali prison escapee Shaun Davidson thought to

 be hiding out in Pattaya

In what can hardly be called a surprising move, Bali prison escapee Shaun Davidson, 33, is thought to be hiding out in Pattaya, Thailand’s bad boy seaside paradise.

After tunneling out of Bali’s Kerobokan jail on June 19 with three other inmates, Australian Davidson supposedly used one of his five known Facebook accounts to check into places all over the world, including Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and Dubai, reported Courier Mail.

We’ve checked the Facebook account in question, under the name Matthew Rageone Ridler, but any check-ins may have been removed or only visible to friends.

Police monitoring the accounts believe the check-ins were only to throw them off his trail.

Evidence they have collected related to Davidson’s past as a Muay Thai fighter—he taught classes to other inmates while in the Balinese jail—and his connections to motorcycle gang The Mongols have led them to believe that either his motorcycle gang brethren or fellow Muay Thai fighters are housing him in a safe place in Pattaya and may have given him a new identity.

International motorcycle gangs such as The Mongols, Hells Angels, and Bandidos have active chapters in Pattaya and are often linked to the drug trade and other illegal pursuits there.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Davidson was only scheduled to be in the Balinese prison for another 10 weeks when he made his daring escape. He was serving a one year sentence for using someone else’s passport but was scheduled to be repatriated to his hometown of Perth on release and was facing drug charges there.

Davidson made his daring escape with two drug trade convicts, Malaysian Tee Kok King and Indian Sayed Muhammad, and Bulgarian card skimmer Dimitar Nikolon Iliev.

Iliev and Said were caught just three days after escaping at a resort in East Timor. King is still on the run.

The Courier Mail called Pattaya “arguably the fugitive capital of the world” and a good place for “rubbing shoulders with fellow criminals.”

Thai officials who have been trying to turn Pattaya, often called “sin city,” into a family resort town, are probably are going to be none too pleased to hear their seaside escape referred to as a haven for criminals and fugitives.
