A former municipal councillor has admitted to murdering a wealthy man from the Netherlands in 2003. He had been on the run ever since after being granted bail then sentenced to death in absentia by the Pattaya court.

 

He conspired with the victim's Thai wife with whom he had started a secret affair.

 

Finding out that the Dutch man had 100 million baht in assets he conspired with the foreigner's wife and her elder brother to murder him. Jules Odekerken was bludgeoned to death with clubs then after coming round was finished off with a rock. He was then dumped in a soi in Chonburi.

 

Mr Odekerken, then 49, was the well known owner of "Quick News" (in Pattaya) reported Siam Rath. Elsewhere Thai media reported that he owned other media outlets in the resort and in Phuket.

 

He was murdered on 16th November 2003.

 

Siam Rath reported that Jules married Marisa Promma, 37, whom he met in Pattaya and the couple later had two children.

 

They hired former municipal councillor of Lang Suan, Chumphon, named Anupong Suthanee, now 54, who was also a building contractor, to build them a house.

 

Anupong started a sexual affair with Marisa then the pair conspired together to murder Jules hoping to get his large inheritance. Her elder brother Seksan Phromma was also in on the plot.

 

In 2003 Anupong and Seksan caught Jules alone and beat him with a club then strangled him with rope. They believed he was dead but he came round and begged for help as they were transporting the body. He was finished off with rocks then dumped in Soi Greenway in Muang district of Chonburi.

 

Anupong was granted bail and repeatedly failed to turn up in court resulting him in being sentenced to death in absentia in 2007 and a warrant being issued by the Pattaya court for his arrest.

 

He has now been arrested by the Crime Suppression Division in Phrae in northern Thailand.

 

He has reportedly admitted to what he did and had hoped that the statute of limitations would run out meaning he would not have to face justice.

 

Other media in Thailand reported that both Marisa and brother Seksan are serving life imprisonment for the murder.

 

The CSD's Pol Maj-Gen Jiraphop Phuridech and a large contingent of police announced the arrest yesterday as the murderer was taken to Pattaya.

We would hope the 100 mil went to both the children. So I wonder where he met this upstanding trustable wife in Pattaya?
