Cops offer THB5,000 reward for knives used in Chao Phraya murder

Cops have offered a THB5,000 reward to track down a box of knives they think were used in the murder and dismemberment of Spanish businessman David Bernat.

They believe the prime suspect, Artur Segarra, used the knives to murder Bernat and cut up his body, which was found in separate locations of the Chao Phraya River last month, and then dumped the box, Khaosod English reported.

Cops are appealing to anyone who has information about the box to come forward. They believe the box was left by a bin near a bridge over Khlong Lor Lae, between sois Ramkhamhaeng 156 and 158, around 12.30pm on Feb. 1.

Meanwhile Royal Thai Police chief said yesterday that police had found surveillance footage of Segarra entering a construction materials shop and buying something, although he did not elaborate on what that item was, Thai PBS reported.

Police are also awaiting the results of DNA testing of evidence found at three locations.

Those locations include a condo at Rama IX where they believe Bernat was held against his will and killed, and a house on Soi Ramkhamkaeng 174 where they found a freezer they believe was used to store the remains of the victim before he was disposed.

Spanish national Segarra claims he is innocent, although he has admitted to knowing the victim.
