Police investigators found pieces of human remains identified as German national Uwe Keienburt, 45, an engineer, scattered over a 50-metre radius in a rubber plantation in Banglamung district Friday morning. His driver’s licence was also found at the crime scene, but his head was missing.

A BMW sedan, 523 I , No.4007 , presumed to be Mr Keienburt’s vehicle, was parked 100 metres from his remains.

Mr Keienburt’s Thai wife, Mrs Araya,[40], told the police investigators that her husband had left home in Bangkok’s Sukhumvit Soi 24 at 9.00 am on Thursday, August 20. She notified Thonglor Police Station in Bangkok about the disappearance and asked for help in finding him.

His wife said he had been under threats from foreign nationals in the real estate business for a long time and he was always watching out. 

She also said he had sued some foreign nations in court and they have responded with death threats.

Pol Lt-Col Prakorb Sangpring, head of the police investigative team at Huay Yai Police Station said an explosive device believed to be C-4 bomb had been attached to Mr Keienburt’s stomach apparently to force him to negotiate or to reveal certain information. He speculated the victim was killed after refusing to give in.

In an attempt to speed up the case, Pol Maj-Gen Bandid Kunachak, regional police chief, said investigators were seeking clues from foreigners and foreign mafia gangs in Pattaya as the circumstances surrounding Mr Keienburt’s death bore the hallmark of a mafia-related attack.
