Bodies of British millionaire and wife found at Thai mansion

Thai officers stand by the area where the bodies of a murdered Briton and his Thai wife were found in Phrae province Thailand Tuesday Sept. 25

Police in northern Thailand have arrested three men over the brutal murder of a British millionaire and his wife.

The bodies of a wealthy British businessman and his Thai wife have been recovered near their luxury home in northern Thailand after they were allegedly murdered in a contract killing ordered by the woman's brother, the police confirmed on Tuesday.

They've confessed to killing 64 year old Alan Hogg and his 61 year old Thai wife Nod Suddaen.

Blood stains were found in the sink and changing room area around the pool at their home, with signs they had been wiped down, but no bodies have been found.

He was charged with theft and released on bail - but has since fled.

The wife's brother, Warut Satchakit, was arrested over the disappearance after CCTV showed him entering the home and stealing the vehicle on Thursday.

They say killed them at the couple's sprawling home and then buried the bodies in the garden. The couple's daughter, Robyn, flew to Thailand from the United Kingdom over the weekend to assist the search.

Over the weekend, police Major-General Sanpat Praputsra told reporters that investigators were "certain" that the disappearances were connected to a "long-standing conflict within the family" and that they were "confident" the culprit would be brought to justice.

"The brother-in-law had problems with money and there were family issues", Prabpudsa told the Guardian.

Alan, originally from Edinburgh, Scotland, arrived in Thailand several years ago having worked as an engineer in Australia but was still involved with a number of businesses in the UK.

Neighbours described his wife as "the most handsome woman in the town" and said that Mr Hogg was "very friendly" and often helped them.

Mr Hogg's brother-in-law denied any involvement in their disappearance and police did not have enough evidence to charge him.
