Police find bodies of Briton, Thai wife buried on their Phrae land

Police find bodies of Briton, Thai wife buried on their Phrae land

Alan Hogg, a 64-year-old retired businessman, and his wife Nod Suddaen, 61, were reported missing from their home in the province of Phrae last week.

The bodies of a wealthy British retiree and his Thai wife were found buried on their own property on Tuesday, September 25, a week after an alleged contract killing ordered by the woman's brother, police said.

Bia Kamsai and Kittipong Kamwan, both 27, were arrested on suspicion of murder and have allegedly confessed.

Yesterday their bodies were found lying together in a two-metre hole on their estate, said deputy police spokesperson, Krisana Pattanacharoen.

The police officer said an issue that likely contributed to the murders was that Hogg would often buy assets using the names of his Thai family members, including his wife's brother, who wanted to sell some of those assets.

A British millionaire and his wife have been found murdered in Thailand, a week after they were reported missing.

The three told officers they shot and killed Hogg in front of a duck pen on his property and then used a spanner to club and beat Nod to death in front of the garage.

Senate panel receives new Kavanaugh allegations
Nothing on the calendar appears to mention Ford , who has said she was a "friendly acquaintance" of Kavanaugh's at the time . They will both testify in front of the Republican-led Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday at 10am local time (14:00 GMT).


The other two arrests are reportedly local friends of Khun Warut. The men also implicated Hogg's brother-in-law, Warut Satchakit, in the crime.

He added: 'The brother has been released on bail and charged with burglary at night for stealing the vehicle.

Major General Sanpat Praputsra said: 'The progress of the case is moving well and we're in control.

Police initially arrested Khun Warut after CCTV footage showed him entering the couple's home and driving away in the pickup last Thursday but he denied any involvement in their disappearance.

"We are certain that the disappearance comes from a family feud with Thai relatives", Praputsra said.

The authorities had earlier dug to a lesser depth on the same spot two days after the couple's friend told police she could not contact them.
