Police launched a murder hunt today for a pretty young waitress’s suspected lover after she was raped and had her throat slashed in a locked rented room.
Sriprapha Kosin, 25, had been due at work on Monday but colleagues became concerend when she did not arrive or respond on the Line messaging app.
Friends went to a motel she had been staying at and saw a BIKE LOCK wrapped through the door handle on the outside of the motel room in Prachuap Khiri Khan, southern Thailand.
Police arrived and found the nude young girl inside with her wrists tied to her things, her bra pulled up, her underwear removed, her throat slashed and bruises to her face.
They have now launched a murder hunt after residents said they saw a man – suspected to be a love – drop her off on a motorbike on Sunday evening before leaving the room wearing a surgical mask.
Police Commander Siripanaki Pirati from the Provincial Police Bureau Region 7 said: ‘’Upon arriving at the scene we found a door locked with a padlock. The smell of rotting corpses spread throughout the outside of the room.”
Police said they spoke with Sriprapha’s friends at the restaurant where she worked who told how they had last seen her on Sunday evening.
They said she was a ‘’beautiful person who never quarrelled with anyone’’.
Friend Noi Nam said: ”Rip my friend. I woke up with bad news these recent days. Why is life so cruel?I want to thank you for everything that you’ve been helping me with.
”Thank you for letting this be a dream. I hope they can catch the evil man who did this.”
