The bodies of 64 year old Alan Hogg and his 61 year old wife, Nod Suddaen, wee unearthed yesterday morning following a short investigation where greed brought the plot unstuck for the killers.

After a few hours of interrogation three men admitted to collusion in the plot to murder the married couple.

Included in the latest interrogations was Khun Nod’s brother, Warun Satchakit, who was first set free on bail after initial questioning over the couple’s stolen white pick up, but was released before his later arrest when the car was located last Sunday.

The other two arrests are reportedly local friends of Khun Warut. In the confession they detailed the method of killing the pair. Warut confessed to organising and carrying out the killings. It is understood that he fired the gun that killed Mr Hogg and bludgeoned Khun Nod to death with a hammer.

Warut told police he then took the bodies to an area behind the house, near a creek, to bury them with a small excavator/back hoe. The corpses were found lying next to each other about 2 metres underground.

Happier times for the married couple – Alan and Nod

During the interrogation Warut has told police that the couple ‘repeatedly criticised him’ and that that he’d tired of the constant criticism and went about planning their deaths.

The plot unravelled after the killers allegedly stole the dead couple’s new pick-up and tried to get a quick sale for cash. A Lao man bought the car and was driving south on Sunday night when he heard about the missing couple and the missing car. He reported to police in Ayutthaya and was able to provide police with information that led to the trio’s arrest.

Police initially arrested Khun Warut after CCTV footage showed him entering the couple’s home and driving away in the pickup last Thursday but he denied any involvement in their disappearance. He was charged with theft of the pick up and released on bail of 100,000 baht at the time.

Friends of the couple had alerted police about their concerns over the missing couple as early as last Tuesday, two days before Khun Warut was first arrested.

Mae Hong Son continues to be plagued with fires | The Thaiger

Mae Hong Son province continues to be plagued by forest fires despite the ban and the raging haze and smoke problems.

In recent months, Mae Hong Son has been struggling with haze most of the time with flights to its airport limited at the height of the crisis. Exposure to the serious air pollution has become a threat to the health of locals. Authorities continue to blame outdoor fires as the key cause of smog.

However, illegal outdoor fires continue to be detected.

Satellite images confirmed that there were at least 23 hotspots in Mae Hong Son yesterday. Of them, 13 were in Sop Moei district.

Kampanart Prachongpim, who heads Mae Hong Son’s forest-fire control division, says that teams from several provinces had come to Mae Hong Son to help extinguish forest fires that were often caused by people. At least, two bushfires extinguished yesterday were caused by people going into the forest to collect forest produce. According to him, by the time these forest fires were put out, about nine rai of forest reserves had been destroyed.

Mae Hong Son is 100 kilometres north west of Chiang Mai, near the Myanmar border.

Police are still investigating the death of a 33 year old Australian man in Chiang Mai during the week. The man’s body was sent for autopsy whilst police speculate a drug overdose may have been the cause.

The body of the man, identified as Daniel Thomas Janse was found at 4pm on April 17 at a hotel in the Chang Phueak area, according to the Chiang Mai News.

Police say there was no sign of a struggle in the room and suspect the man may have died of a drug overdose. The man’s body was sent to Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital for autopsy.

Thai language social media in Chiang Mai have responded to the news of a dead foreigner being found in a hotel room by mostly asking the name of the hotel to avoid the deceased’s ghost.
