The police investigation of the body in the freezer case has shifted to the friend called Robert Grundy an associate of the man known as “Peter”.

body-in-the-freezer-storyPeter has implicated Robert Grundy in the killing of the Hungarian born US national found cut up in the freezer at the business premises in Sukhumvit Soi 56 during a passport forgery raid 11 days ago, reports tnamcot.

The man in the freezer was thought to have been killed in 2008 before being cut into several pieces and stored.

Peter is believed to have taken Grundy to be cremated at a temple in Huay Kwang, Bangkok. Police are examining Grundy’s financial transactions as well as those of the other suspects.

They have requested their police counterparts in the US for details about Grundy including his dental records. They need to verify information they have already obtained.

It was also revealed that the cremation – allegedly following Grundy’s death from cancer – was hurried along supposedly to get the ashes to waiting US relatives. However, the ashes were not collected.

Met police chief Sanit Mahathavorn said that the case against the three suspects in custody had made “great progress”. But he remained tight lipped saying that more details needed to be corroborated.

He did confirm that Peter was not the real ringleader’s name and that the three suspects had used at least 10 fake passports between them over the years.

Meanwhile citing unnamed police sources said that “Peter”, an ex Vietnam veteran had lived a life like a star in Hollywood movies of horror and fraud.

He was likened to the central character in “Catch me if you can”.

They said that he had travelled across Asia including Burma, Malaysia, China, Hong Kong and Thailand committing crimes related to drugs and murder. He had used fake passports to escape justice, they alleged.

They also said that his fingerprints were not found in the bags used to wrap the corpse in the freezer but were in fact those of Aaron Thomas Gabel, 40, another of the suspects.

There were also prints of another person, said

they also reported that the dead man of Hungarian descent was the CEO of a Los Angeles firm in building construction and train track laying.

Police have also interviewed Peter’s estranged wife again, they added.
