Rape-murder case awaiting forensics results | Thaiger

RAWAI: Police investigating the rape and murder of Phuket native Tada Sa-nguansak, 49, whose body was found in broad daylight on Friendship Beach June 28, are awaiting the results of forensics tests being carried out in Bangkok.

Pol Lt Col Peerapan Meemak of Chalong Police Station told the Gazette, “We are waiting for tests results from the Forensic Laboratory Institute in Bangkok.”

He added that he had questioned local residents and Burmese workers, and had sent DNA samples to Bangkok for tests.

“We have to wait for the final results. I think we will have them soon,” he said.

Tada was a motorcycle taxi driver woman who worked from a motorcycle taxi stand in front of Phuket Provincial Prison. Her body was found on the beach near Wichit Bungalow in the late afternoon of June 28. She had been raped and her throat had been slit.
