Body of 15-year-old girl accused of luring British boy to his death in Thailand is found in woods


The body of Suraphltchaya Khamsa, 15, accused of luring a British boy to his death in Thailand has been found.

She was found in a shallow grave three miles from where Woramet Ben Taota, 16, was discovered last Saturday.

Dual-national, Woramet Ben Taota was beaten to death last Saturday after meeting up with prolific drug dealer Chaiwat Boongarin close to his home in the country’s Lampang’s northern province.

Boongarin claimed that Taota and Khamsa, were involved in drug running for him, and the pair stole the drugs from him.

Khamsa is accused of luring Taota to the forest, where Boongarin allegedly beat him to death.

The pair were last seen riding off together on Saturday night on Ben’s motorbike.

Ben’s remains were discovered the following day, Sunday, in woods about three miles from his home.

The killer, who is known as Wat, confessed to murdering Ben but initially claimed to know nothing of Suraphltchaya Khamsa’s where-abouts.

EsB earlier reported that Chaiwat Boongarin, the 44-year-old sex offender, claimed he hit Taota with a stick when a drug deal went wrong, according to Thai police.

Police launched a desperate search for Suraphltchaya Khamsa, who her family believed was alive but being held against her will.

Mongkol Sampawapol, the commander of Lampang Provincial Police, said: ‘Police received intelligence gathered from the search operation about the location of the body.

‘The suspect who admitted to killing the boy denies killing the girl.

‘He says that somebody else attacked her and buried her body in the woods.

‘We suspect that the suspect is responsible for both murders, however, police will also continue investigating the deaths to check if anybody else was involved.

‘The female victim’s body is now being sent to hospital for an autopsy to find traces of rape or sexual assault, because the suspect has a history of these crimes.

‘There were signs of bruising on her face and it is expected that she was hit with a solid object until she died.’

Her desperate grandfather, 60-year-old farmer Charoon Annaeua told DailyMail: ‘I am very worried about my grand-daughter.

‘It’s been almost a week now and we don’t know what has happened to her.

‘We have been searching for her. We have looked all through the village, the farmland, and in the foothills of the mountains.

‘I fear she is being held against her will. It is a terrible thing that Wat has done.’

But this morning officers revealed the grim news that they had found her body buried in woodland just off the main north-south highway near Lampang.

A police source told DailyMail: ‘The search team have found her body. The killer Wat led officers to her grave.

Ben’s parents, Steven and Ooy have told of their devastation at his death.

They told DailyMail: ‘We are heart-broken. Words cannot describe our pain.‘

‘Ben was lured to meet his killer in some kind of honey trap set by this young girl.’
