The investigation exposed that the silicone was sold in Vietnam. The police then coordinated with the Vietnamese embassy in Bangkok to help examine the woman’s fingerprints before the results revealed the identification of the 33-year-old Vietnamese woman.

The man’s fingerprints were also examined and the results matched with the body of a 38-year-old Nigerian man named Anabon Chka Hen. The police believed that such crucial information will lead the investigation team to find more evidence and identify the murderer.
