Police in ChiangMai have launched a murder inquiry after a wealthy woman from Samut Prakarn was found encased in cement in a fridge on its side.
Her BMW is missing.
Wanee, 58, from Bang Plee had bought some business premises near the temple of Sri Jom Thong where she was a disciple and benefactor. She stayed in the premises when she visited the temple.
Her elder brother Woraphan, 59, found the body yesterday. He had grown concerned after contact with his sister ceased from October 18th.
He went to the building in Moo 3 and found the door locked from the inside and a foul odor emanating from inside.
A locksmith was called and they made the gruesome discovery. His sister was contained in a fridge that had been placed on its side. The plug was still connected.
She had been encased in cement.
Jom Thong police and forensics at the scene found two used sacks of cement and ascertained that the victim had been dead for about two weeks.
The fridge was in a kitchen area at the property and had been wrapped in a cloth.
The victim’s BMW is missing along with her phone.
Police are giving weight to the suggestion that this was a case of theft/murder.
The body has been taken to Maharat Nakhon Chiang Mai Hospital for autopsy and DNA analysis.
