Thai police have confirmed that all three of the suspects in the passport forgery and body in the freezer case are Americans.

INN reported Natthathorn Phrosunthorn of the immigration police as saying this could now be confirmed after receiving information from the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the US, reported Sanook.

The man earlier named as “Peter William Johnson” has now been named as Herbert K. ‘Louvran’ (surname transliterated from the Thai report may be incorrect). He is said to be 63.

This was confirmed after fingerprinting evidence and information from relatives. He was previously wanted on a charge of fraud though the statute of limitations had run out on this.

The second suspect was named as James Douglas Eger who had come in and out of Thailand 148. He had been permitted to stay in Thailand until 2017. His latest arrival was 2nd November 2014.

The third suspect was named as Gabriel Aaron Thomas who also had been in and out of the kingdom many times. He was said to be involved with three Thai women two of whom had no criminal background though the INN report was not clear in this regard.

Immigration told INN that they were happy with the technology used for checking passports saying that forgeries had been detected in the past in high profile cases.
