Shane Kenneth Looker, 47, was being held by Spanish police who will await extradition papers from Thai authorities, the Euro Weekly News reported early today (June 9).

He is wanted in connection with the murder and butchery of bar girl Laxami “Pook” Manochat, reportedly his girlfriend.

Her dismembered body was discovered stuffed into a suitcase and floating in the Mae Klong River in Kanchanaburi on Nov 13, 2014.

It was the last time she was seen before her body was discovered.
