Robbery believed motive behind brutal Rayong killing of Cambodian woman


Rayong police say robbery likely was the motive behind the brutal killing of a Cambodian seamstress in Paknam.

The body of 40-year-old “Chiang” was found at a garbage dump on Soi Samrit 1, slumped over the seat of her pink Turbo Master bicycle with her head covered with a fertilizer bag and hands and feet tied to the bike. Her face was badly cut and bruised.

Local Cambodians told police Chiang lived in apartment on Paknam Soi 6 and was often seen riding to work at a local temple wearing a gold chain. Police did not find the necklace at the scene.

Police believe Chiang was robbed, then killed elsewhere, probably by two men, before being left at the dump.
