A Nigerian man identified as Anabon Chka Hen and a Vietnamese woman’s murdered bodies have been found buried in a shallow grave in northeastern Thailand, Police forensics investigators have said.
It was learnt that the Nigeria Anabon’s fingerprint assisted in identifying him, while the serial number of the Vietnamese woman’s silicone breast implants helps in her identification.
Nakhon Ratchasima police reported that the implant was sent to Vietnam. They later coordinated with the Vietnamese embassy in Bangkok to help examine the woman’s fingerprints.
Açcording to Chiang Rai Times, there was a match between the results and that of Nguyen Thi Van, a 33-year-old Vietnamese woman.
Police also checked the man’s fingerprints with Immigration police, and the results showed that the body belonged to 38-year-old Anabon Chka Hen from Nigeria.
Police are now investigating to determine what led to their murders.
A wild mushroom harvester was said to have discovered their bodies in a forest at Chok Chai district in Nakhon Ratchasima on the evening of July 28, 2022.
According to the report, the man noticed a fresh pile of earth covered with branches about 500 metres off Highway 224. The village head and other residents went to check it out. They dug into the soil and quicky stopped when they uncovered part of a human body.
Police were called to the scene and rescue workers dug deeper, uncovering the bodies of a man and a woman buried less than one metre down. The bodies were naked.
