Withoon Sritabut or “Em”, a 39 year old from Lampang, has so far not implicated anyone else.  The elder brother of Wannee, 58, found her body in her town home in Jom Thong district of Chiang Mai on Sunday after she had gone missing for some time.  Her hands and feet were bound and an effort had been made to encase her in cement in a fridge that was on its side and plugged in.  She was a wealthy woman from Bang Plee, Samut Prakarn who had donated millions to temples and Chiang Mai University.  Withoon was arrested on a warrant issued in Hot as he rode a motorcycle along Route 1072 in Muang district of Nakhon Sawan yesterday afternoon.  

Cash in the sum of 1,200,000 baht was found under the bike’s seat along with a five baht weight gold necklace.  It was earlier reported that a man had withdrawn 1.2 million baht using the victim’s ATM card. Police said that following the murder Withoon had fled to Kanchanaburi then bought a motorcycle for 160,000 baht in Nakorn Pathom. He was then tracked to Suphanburi, Chainat and then finally to Nakhon Sawan.  Region 5 police chief Lt-Gen Prajuap Wongsuk said that so far Withoon says he had acted alone.  This is at odds with a recorded phone message in the hands of police. The force earlier suggested that two men were involved in the murder and theft of property from the victim including her BMW that was parked at her property in Jom Thong.  Withoon is now under interrogation back in Chiang Mai.
