Police are hunting for an unidentified Chinese man for having allegedly strangled and robbed a Thai woman while she was showing him a condo room he said he wanted to rent.

 

The Bang Khen police station was alerted at 1.30am on Tuesday after the body of Araya Supsawan, 69, was found on the bed inside her room on the second floor of the Newport Place Condo on Soi Phaholyothin 52 in Bangkok’s Bang Khen district.

Araya’s neck was bruised as if it had been tightly tied by a rope. Her gold necklace worth about Bt20,000, gold bracelet worth about Bt40,000 and her gold ring worth about Bt5,000 had disappeared.

 

Her daughter, Pornthip Chuasuksarnthong, 41, told police that her mother left her clothes shop at noon on Monday, saying she would was going to rent the condo room to someone.

After Araya did not return home, her son went to the condo to check and found her body.

 

Police checked footage of security cameras at the condo and saw an Asian man walk into the room with Araya at 1pm and then leave the room several times. As he left for the last time, he could be seen carrying a blue plastic bag with a nylon rope inside.

 

Pornthip told police she believed the murderer was a Chinese man who had claimed to be Araya’s relative. Pornthip said her mother's ancestors had migrated from China and instructed her to help any relative from China if they were in need.

 

Pornthip said two years ago, a Chinese man claiming to be Araya's relative had come to rent the room and borrowed Bt120,000 from her. The man later stole her ATM card and withdrew Bt400,000 before fleeing back to China.

 

Pornthip said her mother had filed a complaint with the Bang Khen police.

 

Pornthip said the man, who she knew only by the sound of his first name as “Kukko”, had called her mother to say he was visiting Thailand and wanted to repay her the money.

Someone who was 'Cuckoo' had called her mother... 🙂

 

And yes, he had first stolen the woman's ATM card and her money, fled the country, but then came back to return the money! - Is he, by any chance, a taxi driver?? 😉

Good guys in, bad guys out, unless you are Chinese. His intentions were not of a compassionate nature.

Rapist's, thieves, paedophiles and murderers have always been welcomed to Thailand. Thai Immigration knows better than stupid farang governments who check tourist's criminal records.

A Chinese man was arrested on Koh Samui in Surat Thani on Tuesday, a day after he allegedly strangled a Bangkok condo owner.

 

The suspect was identified as Wu Zhuoming, 29, who comes from Guangdong, in Guangzhou province, southern China.

 

Immigration Bureau chief Pol Lt Ge Surachate Hakpal confirmed that Wu had been arrested by Samui immigration police.

 

Bang Khen police in Bangkok were told of the death of Wu’s victim, Araya Supsawan, 69, at 1.30am on Tuesday.

 

Police checked and found that Araya took Wu to view her condo on Monday afternoon. Wu was seen on CCTV footage taking a nylon rope and plastic bag into the room, before finally leaving at 3pm.

 

Surachate said the suspect took a bus from the Southern Bus Terminal to Surat Thani, from where he caught a ferry to Samui.

Sometimes it's better not to forgive and forget.

A little unlikely given that they only new him by the sound of his name.

Immigration can't be expected to ask every Chinese visitor if their name 

is kukko.
