On two previous visits to the room in Wiset Road the forensic team had failed to find it.

So, alerted by the shocked relatives, they came back for a third time and used a box cutter to slice out the section of mattress and take the dried blood sample to the lab for analysis.

Picha, 35, was found in a ravine in deep jungle in the Wichit area of the island at the weekend.

A warrant for premeditated murder and concealment of a corpse is set to run out as the suspect has been in hospital all week so the police are applying to the local court for permission to jail him when doctors decide he can leave, reported Daily News.

No explanation was given by Daily News as to how the investigators could have missed such an obvious piece of evidence.
