Two held in frozen body case are Amer­i­cans

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Thai po­lice said two men ac­cused of hid­ing a dis­mem­bered body in a Bangkok house freezer and run­ning a fake pass­port ring are Amer­i­cans. The pair were ar­rested last week along with a third sus­pect who al­legedly opened fire on po­lice dur­ing a raid on the shop­house they used as a crime den in the Thai cap­i­tal. They were caught in pos­ses­sion of mul­ti­ple pass­ports, a cache of drugs and three guns. A search of a pad­locked freezer found the body of a for­eigner chopped into six pieces. “We con­firm two of them are Amer­i­cans,” said Bangkok’s po­lice chief Sanit Ma­hatha­vorn af­ter sev­eral days of lias­ing with US au­thor­i­ties to iden­tify the three men.
