Rubber plantation workers told police that there was a foul smell coming from the area and when they went to investigate they found the bodies.

Police later learned that missing person reports had been filed for the man and woman at Thab Put police station in Phang Nga and also in Nakorn Sri Thammarat on Sunday (May 3).

After police contacted relatives of the two, they were identified as Taweesak Janweing, 39, and Jinda Janweing, 42, husband and wife who were pangolin hunters.

On Sunday their bandoned Chevrolete pick-up truck was found parked on a road in Nakorn Sri Thamarat. The vehicle had been ransacked.

Police believe that the couple came to Klongtom to hunt for pangolins. At some point they were strangled and killed and then dumped in the forest. The murderers are then likely to have driven the couples vehicle to Nakorn Sri Thammarat away from the scene of the crime.

The bodies of the couple were taken to Klongtom Hospital for autopsy.
