OF­FI­CIALS have yet to come to a con­clu­sion in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of a dou­ble homi­cide in­volv­ing a mil­i­tary en­gi­neer and his wife.

Ma­jor Wai Phyo Aung and Dr Khin Sandi Kyaw were found dead with stab wounds last week, ac­cord­ing to the Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion Depart­ment.

The CID is con­duct­ing lab­o­ra­tory work, ac­cord­ing to Po­lice Colonel Zaw Khin Aung of the Nay Pyi Taw Re­gion Po­lice Force. He added that the grisly mur­der was a rar­ity for the cap­i­tal.

“The CID has to con­duct a DNA ex­am­i­na­tion. That in­for­ma­tion is im­por­tant. We can use ma­chin­ery and sci­en­tific tech­niques to try to get to the bot­tom of the case as ur­gently as pos­si­ble,” he said.

Maj Wai Phyo Aung, who worked at the Pan­g­long Mil­i­tary En­gi­neer­ing Reg­i­ment, was re­turn­ing from a busi­ness trip with his wife and daugh­ter in the car on Septem­ber 13. He and his wife be­gan quar­relling.

While on the phone to his brother, the ma­jor dropped the line af­ter say­ing that his wife was try­ing to stab him, ac­cord­ing to the brother.

The ma­jor was found dead from stab wounds near mile­post 8/4 on the Tatkon to Pan­g­long road on the night of Septem­ber 13. His wife was found at mile post 5/1 with 31 stab wounds on her body the fol­low­ing day.

The cou­ple’s five-year-old daugh­ter was found asleep in the back­seat of the car. The knife and blood-stained cloth­ing have been sent to a lab­o­ra­tory in Yan­gon.

Ac­cord­ing to the Tatkon po­lice sta­tion, the fam­ily mem­bers of the de­ceased are on op­pos­ing sides and each blame the other for the in­ci­dent.
