BANGKOK – The body of an Israeli citizen, 63-year-old Eliyahu Cohen, was found buried in concrete at a home in Bangkok, Thailand on Saturday, the Reshet TV website reported.

Eliyahu Cohen, a 63-year-old Israeli policeman, was found Saturday, three days after he had been reported missing, at a home in Bang Bua Thong district rented by Yaakov Shimon Sakira Bitton, 50, and his 17-year-old son, both Israeli.

Police in Bangkok reported that there is evidence linking the two suspects—a 50-year-old Shimon Biton and his 17-year-old son—to the crime. The Shimon Biton, is a suspected criminal with known ties to drug smuggling who  was previously accused of murdering another Israeli in Thailand. He was later acquitted of murder but convicted of disposing of the body.

Cohen, a retired police officer who had been living in Bangkok, was reported missing several days ago, prompting a search by police.

Local officials said some of Cohen’s remains were found in concrete at the pair’s home, and some in a suitcase also discovered at the house.

The Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem said it was following the investigation and was assisting the victim’s family in dealing with Thai authorities. – Watch Arrest Video Click Here
