On Monday morning a woman between the ages of 25 and 30 was found dead at the view point.
The woman’s body was found by police and medics after a call came in to say there was a body on open ground on Thaweerat Pakdee Road.
Pol Lt Col Pongkachorn Plumashoot, the Bophut police investigator said that the woman’s body was found face up with her mouth and nose sealed by several layers of duct tape. She was partially dressed but there was no evidence of rape, a pair of orange high heel shoes were found in the vicinity. Two pairs of rubber gloves were also recovered from the scene and several cigarette butts.
It is thought that the woman was from Myanmar and had only been working in Koh Samui for around a week. They suspect her boyfriend also from Myanmar may have been involved in her demise along with a second person. So far the woman’s name has not been released.
The police reported that suffocation may have been the cause of death and that a rape may have been intended, however they believe the woman resisted the attack and called for help, the duct tape may then have been used to silence her. The perpetrators may not have realized she was dead when they fled the scene the police said.Stay updated with Samui Times by following us on Facebook.
