Loch Palm murder victim “not Thai’

TUNG TONG: The police, continuing their investigation into the murder of an unidentified woman found near the Loch Palm Golf Club on October 6, have decided that she was probably not Thai. “I think the victim could not have been Thai because the clothes, bra and bikini that she wore were cheap. I’m certain she bought [her clothes] from the ‘talad nat’ [local market] and her features did not look Thai,” said Pol Maj Paitoon Kongsudjai, the Inspector at Tung Tong Police Station. The absence of relatives added weight to this conclusion, he said – many people had asked to see photographs of the victim, but she remained unidentified. “This investigation has been moving very slowly because we have no witnesses and nobody seems to have known her,” Maj Paitoon told the Gazette. “It is important that we gather more information about the victim for our investigation to move forward,” he added. The case will remain open for further investigation for one year. Meanwhile, the victim’s body remains in the morgue at the Institute of Forensic Medicine in Bangkok.
