Written by World News

Cambodian police have arrested a third suspect in the murder in Thailand of a South Korean man, whose body was found in a plastic barrel dumped into the Map Prachan Reservoir in Bang Lamung district of Chon Buri.

Pol Maj-Gen Noppasilp Poonsawat, deputy commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, said today that he learned that Cambodian police apprehended the suspect at lodgings in Phnom Penh on Monday, and are now making preparations to have him extradited to face charges in South Korea.

As far as the Thai police investigation is concerned, he said that identification of the remains in the barrel by the victim’s elder sister, as well as DNA comparisons, have confirmed that the deceased was Roh Eui Jong, who was reported missing earlier this month.

He said that investigators are waiting for official reports from the Institute of Forensic Medicine, at the Police General Hospital, before they can wrap up the case and seek warrants for the arrests of the three suspects on charges of pre-mediated murder, illegal detention and concealment of a dead body to conceal a crime.

One of the three suspects is in Thai police custody, while the two others are in Cambodia and South Korea
