Brutal double murder in Chalong | Thaiger

CHALONG: Police are searching for a Burmese rubber tapper after the discovery on Tuesday in Soi Nakok, Moo 5, of the mutilated bodies of a man and a woman, in what police are calling a “love triangle” double homicide. Pol Capt Anak Mongkul, of the Chalong District Police Station, said the bodies were found in a rubber plantation 100 meters down from the soi’s entrance. Both victims were lying face-up. Police say marks on the ground and blood on the grass indicate that they had been killed elsewhere, before being dragged to the area. The man had three deep stab wounds in his back, and had been hit on the head with a blunt object. The woman had deep cuts on the left side of her chest. The genitals of both victims had also been severely mutilated. Capt Anak would not reveal the female victim’s name, and would say only that she was Burmese and worked at the same camp as her husband. The murdered man was not known to workers or people living in the area, and remains unidentified. Police are searching for a suspect known only as “Wong”, a Burmese rubber tapper and the husband of the dead woman. After questioning people living in the camp near the couple’s room, police believe that Wong murdered the two after catching his wife with the man in the room. Workers living nearby reported hearing loud arguments in the room on Monday night. Later the same night, they saw Wong walking around outside the room by himself. Wong was last seen rushing out of the plantation worker camp early Tuesday, about five hours before the bodies were found. Witnesses said he was carrying some personal belonging with him. Police searched the couple’s room and found no blood or other evidence, but they believe the murders likely occurred there. The room appeared to have been thoroughly cleaned, police say.
