A head-less corpse found cut up and dumped in a black bag in protected woods in Rayong has been revealed as the remains of a South Korean. 

 

According to records he was on on a blacklist forbidden to enter Thailand after falling foul of gambling laws in Thong Lor in Bangkok. 

 

The remains were found in Nong Sanom, Nern Phra sub-district of Muang district and at first police had no clue who he was. They were searching for the head. 

 

But Pol Lt Gen Jitti Rotbangyang, chief of Region 2 police, said after a meeting yesterday that two bags that had been connected to the victim had been found five kilometers away at Takuan beach. 

 

A number on one of the bags indicated that the victim was 34 year old Choi Myonghoon from South Korea.

 

Tattoos on the body were being examined though it was not known at this time what gang or mafia group he might have been involved with. 

 

Lt Gen Jitti theorized that he had been killed by compatriots but would not go further than that. He told reporters that Choi had run into trouble with Thong Lor police three years ago and had been blacklisted from entering Thailand. 

 

The report gave no explanation as to how he might have come back into Thailand.

South Korean man accused of killing and dismembering his compatriot arrested

POLICE yesterday arrested a South Korean man suspected of murdering his friend, dismembering the body and disposing of the remains in plastic bags.

Kim Chang-hoon

 

Kim Chang-hoon was accused of killing fellow South Korean Choi Myong-hoon, in testimony given to police by Hong Jun-kim yesterday.

 

Kim was arrested in Chanthaburi's Muang district at about 80 kilometres from the Ban Pakkard border checkpoint. 

 

Hong told police via a translator that Kim stabbed Choi to death and forced him at knifepoint to help dismember the body.

 

“I feared that I would be killed like Choi, as Kim used the knife that killed Choi to threaten me,” Hong said.

 

Choi’s remains were discovered when a dog was found chewing on a human calf and foot. The dog’s owner alerted police, leading to the discovery of plastic bags nearby stuffed with more body parts.

Still missing are the head, a leg and an arm of the corpse.

 

The grisly discovery made local headlines for days before police finally identified the victim, who had previously been arrested on gambling charges before being deported.

 

Hong, a computer programmer by profession, told police that Kim had recruited him to work on his online gambling website so he sneaked into the Kingdom to work at a three-storey house on an estate in Muang district.

Choi Myong-hoon

 

“The three of us stayed in the house. I worked as a programmer while Kim and Choi handled online gambling activities and sent income to bosses in South Korea,” he said.

 

Hong said that on January 16, he was working on the third floor when he heard Kim and Choi quarrelling. He came down and saw them fighting and was ordered back upstairs.

 

When he ventured down again, he saw Choi dead and Kim with a knife in his hand, threatening him. “He said if I did not help him, he would kill me too.”

 

Hong told police they moved the body to a bathroom to drain the blood then stored it in an air-conditioned room for three days. The two then dismembered the body before stuffing the body parts into large plastic bags which they placed in two suitcases. 

 

Hong said they threw two of the bags into forest nearby and dumped those containing the head and an arm in the Pradu Gulf.

 

The two then parted ways before Hong asked the South Korean Embassy in Bangkok to coordinate with Thai police to clear his name over the murder. Escorted by a Korean diplomat, Hong surrendered to the Crime Suppression Division.

 

Police yesterday continued the hunt for body parts at sea and checked with shops where the suspects bought the bags, chainsaws and knives used to dispose of the remains.

 

Pol General Chaiwat Kateworachai meanwhile visited the house where the killing allegedly took place. He revealed that forensic officials had found traces of blood on curtains and the toilet floor.

 

Chaiwat said he believed the murder motive stemmed from business conflicts.

Seems the thirst for gambling is eclipsed only by the need for singing Karaoke in the Asian region.
