Burmese nabbed in gruesome murder case

A man whose dismembered body parts were found in garbage in Pathum Thani was a Burmese worker killed by compatriots out of anger over a gold necklace going missing, police said yesterday.

Paraded at a press conference was one suspect identified as Per Ler, who said he dismembered the body of victim Win Ni U for Bt8,000 from a suspect on the loose identified as Mew.
Per Ler said he acted after seeing Mew beat the victim angrily while accusing him of stealing a gold necklace from Mew's sister.
The other body parts were found in a canal after the torso was found earlier this week at a garbage disposal site at a major market.
A Bt50,000 bounty has been offered by police for information leading to Mew's arrest.
