Default Tragic Murder of German Captive...But, Eh, Wait a Sec....

This story sounds sad at first:
"Islamic militants in the Philippines have beheaded a 70-year-old German hostage they were holding for ransom, Manila officials said Monday, as Berlin condemned the murder as "unscrupulous and inhumane".

His vessel, the Rockall, was found drifting on November 7 with the body of Kantner's female companion Sabine Merz with a gunshot wound."
But here is where it gets a little.....less tragic?
"The couple had been kidnapped and held for 52 days in Somalia in 2008 before they were freed, reportedly after a huge ransom was paid, press reports said.

Despite his ordeal in Somalia, Kantner told AFP in 2009 that he still intended to keep sailing into perilous waters.

"I know it's dangerous sailing off into Somali waters and I have no private security guarding me, but I pray to God that pirates won't get me again. It's a little bit like suicide," he said after being freed."
