Woman strangled while showing room to man who previously stole from her
Police are hunting for an unidentified Chinese man for having allegedly strangled and robbed a Thai woman while she was showing him a condo room he said he wanted to rent. The Bang Khen police station was alerted at 1.30am on Tuesday after the body of Araya Supsawan, 69, was found on the bed inside her room on the second floor of the Newport Place Condo on Soi Phaholyothin 52 in Bangkok’s Bang Khen district. Araya’s neck was bruised as if it had been tightly tied by a rope. Her gold necklace worth about Bt20,000, gold bracelet worth about Bt40,000 and her gold ring worth about Bt5,000 had disappeared. Her daughter, Pornthip Chuasuksarnthong, 41, told police that her mother left her clothes shop at noon on Monday, saying she would was going to rent the condo room to someone. After Araya did not return home, her son went to the condo to check and found her body. Police checked footage of security cameras at the condo and saw an Asian man walk into the room with Araya at 1pm and then leave the room several times. As he left for the last time, he could be seen carrying a blue plastic bag with a nylon rope inside. Pornthip told police she believed the murderer was a Chinese man who had claimed to be Araya’s relative. Pornthip said her mother’s ancestors had migrated from China and instructed her to help any relative from China if they were in need. Pornthip said two years ago, a Chinese man claiming to be Araya’s relative had come to rent the room and borrowed Bt120,000 from her. The man later stole her ATM card and withdrew Bt400,000 before fleeing back to China. Pornthip said her mother had filed a complaint with the Bang Khen police....
