SURAT THANI - A 22-year-old Burmese man was found dead on the southern island of Koh Samui this morning, less than a week after his cousin was murdered on the same island.

Thet Soe Tar’s body was found on the side of the road near Wat Sawang Arom Temple in Bo Put at around 8 am today. According to police reports, Thet suffered wounds on his throat, chest, and left torso. He is believed to have been killed five hours prior to the discovery of his body.

The local resident who found Thet's body said he drove past a man lying by the side of the road on his way to the market early this morning. He said he became suspicious when he saw the man in the same location on his way back, and decided to alert the police.

Thet was a waiter at a bar on Chaweng beach, his friends told police. He was last seen at around 2 am, when the bar closed down and he drove away on his motorcycle, police say.

According to police, Thet is a cousin of the 22-year-old Burmese woman named Sor Ngae Ngae who was murdered on Samui island four days ago, though they have not determined whether the two cases are connected. Three Burmese workers were arrested in connection with the killing of Sor.

" They like to use violence" What?? most people who kill people use violence you tools!!

They have yet to determine if the 2 cases are connected!! Here is your answer .YES!!

What are the chances of a random victim being related to someone murdered less than a week ago on the same island?? Very slim i reckon.

This also makes me think they have the wrong people under arrest for the first murder or the right people but there is still more of the same gang on the loose. I think the guy new something and was silenced before he could tell anyone.

With this mentality prevalent on Koh Tao and Koh Samui, how can a Burmese get a fair trial?

KOH SAMUI: -- A 22 year old Burmese man has been found dead at Wat Sawang Arom Temple in Bophut less than a week after his cousin was murdered.

According to police reports Thet Soe, 22 suffered wounds to his throat, chest and torso.

The local resident who made the grim discovery said that he rode past the man on the way to the market early this morning, he became concerned when he was still lying in the same position when he returned from the market, so alerted the police. It is believed the man had been dead for around five hours when rescue teams arrived at the scene.

Thet’s friends told police that he worked as a waiter in Chaweng, where he was last seen alive at around 2am when the bar closed, he left on his motorbike. Thet is a cousin of the 22 year old Burmese woman Sor Ngae Ngae who was murdered on the island four days ago. It is yet to be determined if there is any connection between the two cases.

Local police in Koh Samui have been reported as suggesting that they believe there were at least two perpetrators to the crime and believe due to the violent nature of the crime it was likely committed by members of the Burmese community. CCTV footage from the bar where Thet worked is now being analyzed for clues as to who may have killed him.
