Myanmar rubber worker found dead in Phuket plantation, police detain ‘friend’ suspect

At 10.50am Police Sub Lieutenant Thanom Thongpaen of Tha Chadchai Police was alerted of a dead body at a shack in the middle of a rubber plantation in Mai Khao sub district’s Moo 1 locale.

Police and rescue workers reported to the scene, located behind a Tim Sum restaurant, near the turn-off for the airport, where they found the body of a man lying on his back side in front of the shack and wearing only black shorts.

An initial inspection of the body unveiled a slash wound near the man's left ear, and stab wounds on his back and right arm. Police estimated that the man had been dead for no less than six hours.

The man was identified as 25-year-old Mr Sor of Myanmar, a labourer who extracted rubber from the trees in the plantation.

Police questioned other Myanmar nationals in the area, who speculated that Mr Sor had most likely been attacked by his “friend”, another Myanmar national.

After searching the premices, police discovered another shack in the rubber plantation, where they confronted a Myanmar national, named as Mr Yao, who was identified as the “friend” of the deceased.

Police detained Mr Yao, who was said to be "acting suspiciously", and brought him back to Tha Chadchai Police Station for further questioning.

Mr Sor’s body was transported to Thalang Hospital for further inspection.

The incident is the second suspected murder involving Myanmar “friends” today. The other incident occurred on a boat at sea off Phuket this morning.
