Thai police is expecting a call from Taiwan officials to help find a man accused of killing a Thai couple last week.

The bodies of the couple were discovered in a parked car outside the Taoyuan high-speed train station on Friday. The killings are believed to be linked to a disagreement over money lending.

The bodies of the couple were covered in bruises, suggesting they had been brutally murdered somewhere else, dragged into the car and dropped near the train station. The dead woman was discovered to be expecting twins, according to Radio Taiwan International (RTI).

They were allegedly murdered by a Thai man, a family acquaintance, over a money disagreement concerning a recruitment firm, according to Taiwan police. The three met on Wednesday, June 8 to try and resolve their dispute, but the couple were not seen again. The woman was last seen on June 9 on CCTV in New Taipei City’s Tucheng district, where the attack allegedly took place.
