Andre Josef Emiel Scheepmans, 54, from Leuven, Belgium was involved in a car crash and appears to have committed suicide. I have been informed that he had called his partner after the crash and he was found by local police SPO3 Cleto Pias with a pistol in his hand and dead at the scene.
There has been rumours of a business deal that had gone bad relating to a diving business. But this as yet is unconfirmed, I met Andre in Minglanilla around 3 years ago, seemed a nice enough guy who had come out of the mining industry.
If it is a business deal going bad this is yet another expat who has lost their life due to financial issues which should be a warning to all.
