Police in Chonburi investigating the double execution style murder in the car park at Buddha Mountain in Sattahip have pointed to two reasons for the hit.
Deputy provincial chief Pol Maj Gen Chettha Komonwatthana spoke to reporters after a meeting at Na Jomtien police station.
He said that the case was either a love triangle or resulting from disagreements at the work place of the female victim.
He said that it is known that the assailant got out of a CRV before gunning down the woman first then the man.
The two victims – on holiday in Pattaya – were both hit several times and died at the scene, a popular tourist attraction.
Maj Gen Chettha said that there was no CCTV at the car park but cameras elsewhere showed that the CRV had gone to Sukhumvit Road and was driven towards Pattaya.
From there whether it went straight to Sri Racha or turned right to the motorway is being investigated, reported Thai Rath.
He said that the police were working on the case and that there should be good news in one or two days. – Thai Rath
