Police in Cambodian beachside province Sihanoukville hunt for alleged Pattaya killers

Police in the Cambodian beachside province of Sihanoukville have asked for the public’s cooperation in finding two suspects in the murder of a Briton in Pattaya.

The two suspects, identified as South African Abel Caldeira Bonito, 23, and Briton Miles Dicken Turner, 27, entered Cambodia on Jan. 23, the same day they allegedly shot Tony Kenway, 39, to death at the wheel of his Porsche in Pattaya.

Alongside the suspects’ photographs, Nop Sambo, a Sihanoukville immigration officer, posted a plea for assistance in a Facebook group for Sihanoukville residents yesterday.

“Need all of you to cooperate with the information that involves with two of these men specifically where the place of their accommodation,” the post says, according to Cambodia Daily.

It is reported that Bonito, who was identified as the alleged shooter, worked at a Phnom Penh bar last year, but he later told colleagues that he was taking a new job in Sihanoukville.
