Immigration Police on Tuesday announced the arrest of a German man in connection with the death of a German woman who was found dead in Chonburi province. 

 

Immigration Police Commissioner Lt Col Sompong Chingduang identified the dead woman as 77-year-old Margund Schaefer, who is understood to have ran a beer bar in Pattaya with the arrested man.

 

Police began their investigation after being contacted by German authorities who in turn were contacted by family members who had lost contact with Ms Schaefer.

 

As part of that investigation, police tracked down the 52 year old German man, identified only as Mr Richard, after discovering his visa had expired in June 2017.

 

Police later discovered the man has charges in his native Germany for deception and fraud after swindling elderly women out of more than 6,000 Euros. 

 

The German man’s Thai girlfriend told police that Ms Schaefer died after falling in the bathroom in January.

 

She said the German man put Ms Schaefer’s body in a makeshift coffin, loaded it onto the sidecar of a borrowed motorbike and dumped it in a canal in the Saensuk area of Chonburi.

 

The girlfriend also told police that the German man had access to Ms Schaefer’s pension money, which he had been using for his day to day expenses.

 

Police said Ms Schaefer’s body was found on 12 January this year. A warrant was then issued for the German man who was eventually arrested at a rented house in October on 18 October. 

 

The German man denies any involvement.

 

Immigration Police Commissioner Lt Col Sompong said the results of DNA tests will help to confirm how Ms Schaefer died.

 

The investigation continues.

Moral to story: Never run a beer bar in Pattaya.  Though kudos to this lady doing it at 77 years old

So, she stayed with him after knowing he was a criminal ? Tell the police or accept the money for a new hairdo and nails ? Hard decision
