Young woman's killer still here, police believe
Nonthaburi police said they were confident they would soon arrest a young man suspected of brutally killing his girlfriend during the New Year celebration.
Police believed the suspect is still in the country as they had monitored his friends' movements and they would not be able to help him flee.
Suspect Pairoj Nantatanti, 22, was earlier feared to have fled to Cambodia with help from one of his friends.
Police believe Pairoj fatally stabbed and burned his girlfriend out of jealousy, as she was attractive and had drawn the attention of many men.
