Cousin of Burmese Woman Killed on Koh Samui Found Dead
KOH SAMUI – The Dead body of a 22-year-old Thet Soe Tar from Myanmar has been on the southern island of Koh Samui, less than a week after his cousin was murdered on the same island.
According to police reports, Myanmar National Thet Soe Tar’s body was found on the side of the road near Wat Sawang Arom Temple in Bo Put in the early morning. According to Khaosod News , 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.
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.
The officers told reporters that police are studying CCTV footage from the bar where Thet worked and roads around the crime scene to identify suspects.
