Bod­ies found with gun­shot wounds

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

TWO bod­ies have been found with gun­shot wounds af­ter a Bri­tish man and his wife (left) went miss­ing in Thai­land last week.

Alan Hogg, 64, orig­i­nally from Ed­in­burgh, and his Thai wife Nott, 61, were re­ported miss­ing by friends last week af­ter fail­ing to ar­rive at an ap­point­ment.

Two bod­ies with gun­shot wounds were dis­cov­ered buried in the gar­den of their prop­erty, Ma­jor Gen­eral San­pat Pra­put­sra, Phrae’s po­lice chief, re­vealed.

They are yet to be for­mally iden­ti­fied but next of kin in Scot­land have been in­formed of the de­vel­op­ment.

Two men, Bia Kam­sai and Kit­tipong Kamwan, both 27, were ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of mur­der and have al­legedly con­fessed to the killings.

Po­lice say they have claimed Mr Hogg’s brother-in-law, Warut Rat­tanasa­jakit, paid them about 50,000 baht (£1,172) to do it be­cause of a fam­ily feud.

Rat­tanasa­jakit de­nies any in­volve­ment in their dis­ap­pear­ance but has now been ar­rested in con­nec­tion with the mur­der.
