PATTAYA: -- The Pattaya Court Thursday issued arrest warrants against a Briton and a South African man accusing of murdering a British businessman in Pattaya on Tuesday.

 

Chon Buri police chief Pol Maj Gen Somprasong Yenthuam said the court approved the warrants against Miles Dicken Turner, who holds a British passport, and Abel Caldeira Bonito, who holds a South African passport.

 

They were charged with collaborating in killing Tony Kenway, 39, and with having gun and ammunition in control without license as well as carrying firearms in public place.

 

Somprasong said immigration record showed that the two had fled to Cambodia via an immigration checkpoint in Trat at 3 pm on Tuesday, not long after killing Kenway.

CHONBURI — A court issued arrest warrants Wednesday for two foreigners accused of gunning down a British businessman in broad daylight earlier this week.

 

Briton Miles Dicken Turner and South African Abel Caldeira Bonito were named by police as the perpetrators responsible for the execution-style killing of Tony Kenway, 39, in Chonburi province on Tuesday. Although police would not confirm any motive on record, officers privately said they suspect it to be a case of an illicit business dispute that turned deadly.

Police release info regarding potential Killers in murder case


PATTAYA: -- Police are launching a manhunt for the killers in a murder case. A Briton and a South African man are now suspected of being involved with the murder of a British businessman in Chon Buri, a police source said.


The source said police are looking for Miles Dickens Turner, who holds a British passport, and Abel Caldeira Bonito, who holds a South African passport.

The two were found to have registered their names to rent a white motorcycle seen on security cameras as being used by the gunman.


The unidentified gunman shot and killed Tony Kenway, 39, on Tuesday.


The source said Turner entered Thailand for the first time on November 25 at the Suvernabhumi Airport and left Thailand on November 26. He re-entered Thailand on January 19 through an immigration checkpoint in Trat and left Thailand again via the same Trat checkpoint on January 24.

Bonitor entered Thailand for the first time on January 19 through the Trat border checkpoint and left the kingdom via the Trat checkpoint on January 24.

 

Kenway’s wife Somporn, 32, told police her husband recently had a business conflict with a former shareholder in their website design company at Jomtien beach but did not know if it was the motive for the murder.

 

A source close to the investigation said Ms Somporn’s statements corresponded to the findings that Kenway had interests in a football gambling website which led him to a conflict with another group of foreigners. Kenway had met the group twice to try to settle their differences but to no avail. This might be the motive for the killing, the source said.

 

Kenway was known to police and immigration officials as in 2015 he had been arrested and charged with working without a valid work permit and employing aliens. He was on bail and awaiting trial for these offenses.

 

Additionally journalists have now discovered that Kenway had an interest in a ‘call-center operation,’ otherwise known as ‘boiler rooms,’ that were established to encourage foreigners to invest money locally in business and property.

 

It is a matter of record that these phony investment schemes led to the losses of millions of baht for victims and in September 2016 Kenway was arrested and charged with fraud.

 

He denied all charges and, despite officials encouraging him to leave the country, he insisted he was innocent and wanted to stay and face trial later in the year. Kenway was on police bail at the time of his murder. His next court appearance was scheduled for February 23.

 

Nong Prue police called in Ms Somporn and six witnesses for additional inquiries on Wednesday. Pol Maj Jeerasak Aabfang, an inquiry officer, declined to comment on the progress of the case, saying only that the slain businessman had four houses but lived with Ms Somporn at a housing estate in Bang Lamung.

If, or more like when, they realize his assets were obtained immorally and are therefore  'proceeds of crime' I hope they strip the lot away.

There is more than a suspicion he is a 'wrongun'

Well IF these are the villains.....it looks like they don't own Porsche cars....or dress like people who do !

A possible answer might be that they were broke riding a rental bike and the guy that was shot maybe bought the Porsche with money that was stolen from them. It looks like a grudge killing to  me.
