PHUKET: A former resident DJ at Diamond Beach Club was killed in a motorbike accident after an encounter on a curve with a Phuket tour bus this morning on Srisoonthorn Road.

The 42-year-old American, Josh Christian Ezell, announced on his Facebook page earlier that day that he would be retiring from his career as a disc jokey.

Mr Ezell’s body was recovered next to a motorbike about three kilometers away from Heroines’ Monument, near the Valley Village, by Thalang Police and Kusoldharm rescue workers.
