Murder Investigation Launched in Bangkok: Two Scottish Suspects at Large Following Fatal Altercation


At 11:15 PM on February 13th, 2024, the Lumpini police received a report of a murder involving a Myanmar national at an apartment located in Soi Sukhumvit 4, Khlong Toei, Bangkok. Two Scottish suspects remained at large as the police investigation commenced.

Upon arriving at the crime scene, forensic teams and law enforcement officers discovered the body of Mr. Kyam Zeyar, a 53-year-old Myanmar national, having sustained injuries to his face and having a significant bloodstain on his head. Additionally, authorities found luggage and a large safe deposit box as evidence in the case.

According to statements by the victim’s mother who was at the scene of the crime, whose identity was withheld by the police, her son had been engaged in business dealings with two Scottish individuals, identified only as Mr. John and Mr. William. The victim allegedly was asked by John and William to borrow 5 million baht, leading to the murder.

Following discussions in the Wat Phraya Krai area of Bangkok, the three of them returned to the apartment, resulting in the victim’s death and his mother being rendered unconscious by the suspects, as reported to the police.

Initially, the Lumpini police speculated that the murder was caused by a business dispute between the victim and the suspects, exacerbated by the alleged theft of 5 million baht, said the victim’s mother.

While preliminary examinations indicated wounds consistent with blunt force trauma, the police pledged to conduct a thorough investigation to determine the cause of death and the underlying motives behind the murder.

Meanwhile, the police gathered CCTV footage and collaborated with Thai immigration officers to prevent the suspects from fleeing the country, ensuring that they would be held accountable for their alleged involvement in the crime.
