German man admits to Phuket girlfriend’s murder

Thai Rath reported at 4.20pm on Tuesday that Nico Papke had finally admitted to the murder of his girlfriend in Phuket.

The 36 year old German national had been in hospital since July 9th when he had slashed his own throat with a cutter after police moved to arrest him in Rawai sub district.

Yesterday he was released by doctors into police custody and taken to Chalong police station on a warrant for premeditated murder and concealment of a corpse.

Thai Rath said he was dressed in sports clothing and looked stressed.

In the presence of a lawyer and interpreter provided at the suspect’s request by the German consulate on the island he continued to deny involvement until the late afternoon when he admitted what he had done.

His 35 year old girlfriend Pitcha “Lek” Nampadung had been found on July 9th in woods off the Muang Jao Fa Road in Wichit sub-district.

Bloodstains were found under a mattress in a room.

Police told Thai Rath that the suspect would be taken on a reenactment to two locations.
