Police to arrest Israeli suspect’s son

Susak Prakkamakul, Commander of Nonthaburi Provincial Police, said Shimon Biton’s son told investigators that he acknowledged his father had killed a man.

However, Biton’s son, 17, did not witness the murder, according to Maj Gen Susak.

He was speaking yesterday (Nov 13) after a meeting with Bang Bua Thong police investigators who are now overseeing the case after it was transferred to them from the Crime Suppression Division (CSD).

Investigators had asked the court to issue an arrest warrant for Biton’s son, who is a minor, Maj Gen Susak said.

According to police, Biton killed a former Israeli police officer and hid the dismembered body parts inside a wall following a heated argument over a woman.

Biton was nabbed during a raid on Saturday (Nov 12) on his rental home after the CSD had been asked by the Israeli embassy to search for Eliyahu Cohen, a 63-year-old man who was reported missing last Wednesday (Nov 9) from a condominium in Bangkok’s Bang Phat district.

Mr Cohen’s relatives earlier lodged a complaint with the Israeli embassy about his disappearance.

During the raid on Biton’s house in the Phattharawan housing estate in Nonthaburi’s Bang Bua Thong district, police discovered body parts they believed belong to Mr Cohen inside a wall.

Police found three black bags after noticing a stench and knocking two bricks from a wall which they said looked out of place.

The bricks were covered with cement.

An initial investigation found the first bag contained a head with a severe cut down the middle; the second contained a left leg with a black sock; and the third, the largest bag of the three, contained parts of the torso and a right leg.

Biton, who was in the house during the raid, allegedly told police he killed Mr Cohen on Wednesday out of jealousy after discovering his girlfriend had been involved in an intimate relationship with the victim.

However, police are not convinced jealousy was the cause of the murder.

Jirapop Phuridej, Superintendent of CSD’s Division 1, said Biton admitted killing Mr Cohen after several hours of interrogation.

The suspect initially denied the accusation.

Mr Cohen, Biton and his son had met at a restaurant on Khao San Road.

According to investigators, Biton frequently borrowed money from Mr Cohen.

Officers also found money was withdrawn from the victim’s account and spent in Nonthaburi. Samut Ketya, deputy superintendent (Inquiry) of Bang Bua Thong police station, said investigators had questioned four witnesses including Biton and his son.

They found nothing suspicious in the two other witnesses’ accounts.
