Murder: Second Burmese worker confesses to killing British lovers, at “Thailand beach”
A local barman, reportedly told police he had “become aroused” and decided to rape Hannah Witheridge then kill both her and companion David Miller. Police in Thailand said today that “after being interrogated” the two Burmese men had admitted to the horrific killings on the paradise island of Koh Tao.
A third man detained by the authorities denies taking part.
The bodies of Hannah, 23, and, David, 24, were found in a rocky alcove on a beach on September 15 close to the hotel where they were staying.
One of the suspects is a 21-year-old barman working at a beach pub near the scene of the crime.
A police source said he had ”become aroused” after seeing Hannah and David on the beach and decided to rape her and kill them both.
The other man said to have confessed is thought to be the mystery “guitar man” spotted playing songs nearby shortly before the Brits were beaten to death. Police Major General Kiattipong Khawsamang said: “We are interrogating them. So far, accounts from the two men matched and they confessed they killed the tourists.”
DNA taken from the suspects is being analysed. Although detained the men have not yet been formally arrested.
