Chon Buri police are launching a manhunt for a Briton and a South African who are suspected of some involvement in the murder of a British businessman in Pattaya, a police source revealed.
The source said police are looking for Miles Turner Dickens, a British passport holder, and Abel Bonito Caldeira, who bears a South African identity.
The pair had used their ID’s to rent a white motorcycle seen on security cameras being used by the gunman and his getaway driver.
The gunman shot and killed Tony Kenway, 39, on Tuesday.
The source said Dickens entered Thailand for the first time on November 25 at the Suvernabhumi Airport and left again on November 26.
He re-entered Thailand on January 19 through an immigration checkpoint in Trat and left Thailand again via the same Trat checkpoint on January 24 at 3pm, just hours after the killing.
Caldiera entered Thailand for the first time on January 19, also through the Trat border checkpoint, and left the kingdom via the same checkpoint at the same time as Turner.
