Indian Man Brutally Murders a bar girl in Chiang Mai
On 18th October, around 5.51 p.m, Chiang Mai City Police Station received a call that a woman had been brutally murdered at a guesthouse on Kochasarn Road, Chang Klan.
Police arrived at the scene with a rescue team and autopsy officers from Maharaj Nakorn Chaing Mai Hospital, where they found the naked body of a woman covered in blood on the bed, with a pillow over her face. Police also discovered pieces of a broken beer bottle, a used condom and the victim's underwear next to the bed, as well as an unused condom and bloody towel in the toilet, however police couldn’t find the victim's clothes.
The medical team checked the body and found bruises on her right shoulder and head. Her neck had also been tied with a rope and cut deeply with a piece of the broken bottle.
The body was later identified as that of Duangduern Harris, 41, a bar owner in the Loy Kroh area.
The investigation revealed that a guesthouse maid found the victim's body when she came to clean the room, which had been rented by a dark-skinned, tall Indian man who had checked in at around 7.30 p.m. on 14th October. On 17th October, a hotel worker claims to have seen the man return to his room with the victim.
The police have so far reported that the man met the victim at her bar and brought her back to his room where they had sex. It is thought he then tied a rope around her neck, cut her throat with the piece of bottle, and then suffocated her with a pillow. After that he is believed to have taken the victim's valuables before turning the air-conditioner to a very low temperature and leaving the guesthouse.
Police believe that the suspect is still in the area and a search is currently under way to arrest him before he leaves the country.
The murder happened at a local guest house (I can't report the name of the guest house) the lady was working at the bar Behind Mandalay nightclub in Soi 2 called the Midnight Bar. Police on the scene were seriously disturbed by what they saw. The murder happened in room 204 on the third floor of the guest house (won't be saying in that room!) Once police arrived the other guest of the hotel quickly checked out.
