Relatives find blood-stained mattress in slain Phuket woman Lek’s room

PHUKET: Police are investigating a large blood stain found on the mattress in the room of slain Rawai beautician Pischa ‘Lek” Nampadung that was discovered by relatives who were gathering Ms Pischa’s belongings after her funeral on Wednesday (July 12).

Police arrived at the room, in Moo 2 Chalong, at about 10:20am yesterday (July 13) after relatives made the disturbing discovery on Wednesday night.

The room had reportedly already been searched by forensic police twice before.

Ms Pischa and her ex-boyfriend Nico Papke, now under guard at Vachira Phuket Hospital and charged for Ms Pischa’s murder (see story here), used to live together in the room, said police.

“Ms Pischa’s relatives were collecting her belongings yesterday night (July 12) after her cremation in the afternoon,” one forensic officer, who asked not to be named, told The Phuket News yesterday (July 13).

“They searched for things that Ms Pischa might keep in the secret places,” he added.

“They turned the mattress over and found a brown curtain, a white towel and a plastic bag still stuck the mattress. They removed these and found the blood stain underneath.

“It is believe the suspect used these items to cover the mattress and prevent the blood from flowing down onto the floor. Forensic police cut the blood-stained section of the mattress and sent it for the further investigation,” the officer said.

Lt Chanat HongsitthiChaikul of the Chalong Police confirmed that Papke remains in custody at Vachira Hospital.

The doctor has not allowed him to leave yet. He has to stay in hospital for two to three more days,” Lt Chanat said.

Police are still awaiting autopsy, DNA and fingerprint results which will form part of the evidence in the investigation, Lt Chanat confirmed yesterday. (See story here.)

Police on Monday also found blood stains inside a car rented by Papke (see story here.). Samples of the blood found were sent to determine for DNA tests to deteremine whether it was that of Ms Pischa, whose body was found wrapped in blankets and dumped in the Phuket jungle last Saturday (See story here).

Asked this morning how forensic police failed to find the blood stain on her mattress, Lt Chanat declined to answer.

Of note, forensic police are specialised division within the Royal Thai Police separate from regular officers and investigators, and are called in by regular police to conduct forensic-level inspections of crime scenes.

TIAT.....This Is Amazing Thailand

This just askes a massive question on the ability and results of 1,000s of other " investigations" if things like this are missed twice. These rented rooms are not large estates with many rooms, grounds and out buildings. They are 1 or two small rooms with minimal items in. The bed is the largest thing in the room and the biggest holder of blood, other fluids, hair and other sources of DNA. Then to have the towel and plastic bags stuck to it too. This is impossible to miss by anyone. Yes forensics is a separate department but that still does not mean the investigation team can not look around again afterwards. Under the mattress is always a " hiding place" where people hide things and as the mattress is turned over every few weeks anyway you will have material on both sides for sure. Its crazy things like this that do sum up much of Thailands burocracy and administration. Each department has its own set in stone rules and paperwork and neither talk to or have any links to any other department. This is for everything from visa's, tax, work permits, driving licences and just about all other official items needed in day to day living. This is why there are massive loop holes in everything that are exploited by officials as some ares are covered twice by different departments (with different rules and different criteria and different requirements) and other areas as highlighted here totally missed by everyone. I can only assume thats why there are so many " suicides" here. This is very sad for what seems to have been a very well like young lady with a good career and happy life in front of her.
