Thai police are on the hunt for the suspect of a brutal killing of a female bar worker who was mutilated and buried in separate garbage bins.
The victim, identified as Warisara Klinju, was killed and then cut in half by an assailant with an alleged “personal vendetta”, reports Daily Mail.
Farmers discovered pieces of Klinju’s chopped up body inside plastic bags buried in shallow garbage pits near a village in Khon Kaen Province in Thailand. The terrified farmers immediately notified the local police.
In an interview with the local press, Khao Suan Kwang district police Lt. Gen. Suan Khamai described the horrific scene that the villagers found.
“Villagers were walking and approached the area where the body was found,” Lt. Gen. Khamai was quoted as saying. ‘There were black sheets and they began digging. When they opened the bag they found body parts. Police immediately rushed to the scene.”
He added that the 23-year-old victim worked nightly as a drinks hostess who entertained customers in a city bar complex. She was identified by the distinctive tattoos found on her back and one tattoo which read “Poppy” found on her left chest.
“The dead girl was killed elsewhere, cut somewhere else, then put into a bag and transported in a car to be buried in the area,” Lt. Gen. Khamai explained. “We believe this was a personal vendetta. When the opportunity arose they killed her and sliced the body into two pieces. We expect it to be a person issue related to sex and relationships.”
The case is still under investigation as officers conduct DNA testing to help identify the killer.
