Since Thailand is very good at getting DNA test done swiftly i am confident that this case will be closed quickly.

they might even find some cigarette butts with DNA that proves that this is atrocity is been done by a Foreigner.

father in law had lots of mates who patrolled out that way and many other places during cpt days.

according to him it was bandit country.

he spent a few years out that way after ctp amnesty, never had any problems, but did mention the people have village based spirit beliefs, as does his own.

have to wait, for the identification of bones before more speculation.

So, what's the problem? Some garbage dumps founded 40 years ago still have new garbage added to them. Similarly, if some people wanting to dispose of bodies know about out-of-sight cremation sites, they may take advantage of them.

I wasn't saying that this is what the bones are, only that it is a possibility which could/should be looked at.

Well well, another article with news from the darker side of Thailand.

It's been a while.

Perhaps a local wat was saving on gas expenses for cremations of locals that were poor and had no families to collect the ashes?

Good thinking, Sherlock! Might be very possible indeed! And if true, we will never know. With the Army currently in power and all....
