Following the alleged murder and dismemberment of a Ukrainian woman at a condominium in Bang Kho Laem, a Polish man was detained in Sa Kaeo, not far from the Thai border.The Polish suspect allegedly begged a cab driver to assist him in dismembering the body of his girlfriend, but the driver declined.The horrifying occurrence at a condo in Bang Kho Laem was reported to the Wat Phraya Krai Police on Monday (May 15), according to TPN media.
The suspect was detained while attempting to enter the border legally at the Ban Khlong Luek border post in the Aranyaprathet District of Sa Kaeo Province at 11:00 PM on Monday, May 15, 2023. At the time of publication, he was still being detained and questioned.Investigators questioned a cab driver, Mr. Surachai, 56, who was only identified by his first name, according to Wat Phraya Krai Police Chief Colonel Wathit Rojanapaitoon, who spoke to TPN media. Surachai claimed that the Polish man was picked up close to the condominium and that they chatted using Google Translate.
The guy informed the cabbie that he desired to visit a casino but was unsure of its location. However, as gambling is prohibited in Thailand but not in Cambodia, the cab driver consented to take the suspect to the Cambodian border.
Shortly after starting the journey, the suspect utilized Google Translate once more to request the taxi driver go back to his condo so he could help him dismember and remove the body of his deceased lover. He offered the cab driver 1,500 baht to help with the gruesome duty. The motorist declined.The taxi driver, Surachai, then dropped off the Polish passenger outside a Sathorn hotel before returning to the condominium to alert the staff members who had already grown suspicious due to the suspect’s actions and the absence of the woman who had been by his side almost constantly for two weeks.
To reach the Cambodian border, the suspect was able to board another taxi.
The alleged murder’s motivation or the suspect’s statement has not yet been made available to the Thai media as of the time of publication.
This is not the first horrible occurrence involving Poles in Thailand; in fact, two Poles were charged in December with viciously abducting and beating a woman in Pattaya. Later, the men were able to escape Thailand.
