THALANG: Police believe they have identified the woman whose remains were found in a wooded area in Tambon Thepkrasattri last Wednesday evening.
A cousin of Anutch Maneekwan has come forward, saying that K. Anutch, 40, had not been seen since June 27.
The cousin reported that K. Anutch was living in a rented room near Super Cheap, where she worked.
“On June 27 she [K. Anutch] received a call from her ex-husband and rode away on her motorbike,” Lt Col Jamrun Plaiduang, investigator of Thalang Police Station, told the Gazette.
“We found her motorbike on June 30 on the road to Cherng Talay, about 200 meters from the Heroines Monument, but there was no obvious damage to the bike.”
The remains were found another two kilometers further along the road, leading police to suspect that her body was dumped in the woods.
Doctors at Thalang Hospital performed an autopsy but did not find any wounds, so the body has been sent on to a forensic laboratory at the Prince of Songkhla Hospital in Songkhla.
“I have not charged anyone yet because we have no evidence. However, I will investigate her cousin’s statements again, and we are awaiting the forensic results from Songkhla,” Lt Col Jamrun said.
