Police on Tuesday said they found CCTV camera footage showing a Ukranian woman shortly before her death on the Island of Koh Samui. Police investigators said the footage shows her on the same day she was reported missing.
Olha Frolova, 32, was found dead earlier this week in a case police suspected foul play was involved.
Koh Samui police said that the route Olha took was “traceable” to the spot her body was found. However they were still unsure how she got there since the rural area has few CCTV cameras, Khaosod reports.
Olha’s body was recovered Sunday by a local mushroom picker, two weeks after her husband reported her missing.
The CCTV camera footage, recorded 1:08pm on May 25, showed Olha walking along a sparsely-populated rural road in Maret subdistrict in Koh Samui. Police said she had just returned her rental bike before setting out on foot.
In the footage, she was wearing the same clothes that were found on her body.
Kumrop Dechratwichai, director of Koh Samui Hospital, said that Olha’s body was currently undergoing a detailed autopsy at the Police Hospital in Bangkok. The results of her autopsy will take about two weeks.
Koh Samui Police said on Monday they suspected Olha was murdered, since there were apparent attempts to conceal her body. They are treating her death as a possible homicide case. no suspects have been named.
