In connection with the death of a Chinese businessman at a resort in the province of Trang, police in the southern Thai province of Satun have detained two men and a teenage girl.
A Honda Accord automobile, along with other things alleged to have been taken from the victim, were also recovered by police. These items included 11 bank books, five ATM cards, one credit card, two passports, three cell phones, and 11,700 baht in cash.
According to reports, the 40-year-old businessman who went by Li Zhri Rui in his passports owned a number of para wood processing facilities in southern regions. He was discovered dead and stabbed multiple times in a resort restroom in Trang yesterday (Tuesday).
One of the suspects, 22-year-old Natdanai, reportedly told police that his 17-year-old girlfriend, who is also a suspect, called him and asked for assistance after the businessman allegedly refused to pay her for a sex service she had rendered and assaulted her.
The adolescent girl allegedly left a window of the resort room open so that Natdanai could sneak in and stab the businessman with a pocket knife as part of their revenge plan, Natdanai allegedly claimed.
The trio fled from Trang to their homes in La-ngu district of Satun province following the fatal assault in the victim’s Honda Accord.
