Police in Chon Buri have launched a manhunt for a Burmese worker who is a suspect in the murder of an 11 year old boy. The boy’s body was found in a cassava farm in the province’s Sri Racha district on Sunday.
Police believe the 49 year old Burmese national known only as “Wan,” may still be hiding in Chon Buri.
The search was launched after the boy’s mother, known as “Malika,” told police that Wan had recently threatened to harm her and her son.
She told police that Wan had been dating her 62 year old mother for more than 10 years, but their relationship turned sour 2 months ago. After seeing Wan beat up her mother, she told her to leave him. When Wan found out, he threatened to hurt her and her son.
Police raided the suspect’s home but found only his ID documents. So police believe that he may still be hiding somewhere in the province. Nevertheless, police have alerted immigration authorities that the suspect may try to cross the border to Myanmar.
