BANGKOK: -- The police investigation of the body in the freezer case has shifted to the friend called Robert Grundy an associate of the man known as "Peter".

 

Peter has implicated Robert Grundy in the killing of the Hungarian born US national found cut up in the freezer at the business premises in Sukhumvit Soi 56 during a passport forgery raid 11 days ago, reports tnamcot.

 

The man in the freezer was thought to have been killed in 2008 before being cut into several pieces and stored.

 

Peter is believed to have taken Grundy to be cremated at a temple in Huay Kwang, Bangkok. Police are examining Grundy's financial transactions as well as those of the other suspects.

 

They have requested their police counterparts in the US for details about Grundy including his dental records. They need to verify information they have already obtained.

 

It was also revealed that the cremation - allegedly following Grundy's death from cancer - was hurried along supposedly to get the ashes to waiting US relatives. However, the ashes were not collected.

 

Met police chief Sanit Mahathavorn said that the case against the three suspects in custody had made "great progress". But he remained tight lipped saying that more details needed to be corroborated.

 

He did confirm that Peter was not the real ringleader's name and that the three suspects had used at least 10 fake passports between them over the years.

 

Meanwhile sanook.com citing unnamed police sources said that "Peter", an ex Vietnam veteran had lived a life like a star in Hollywood movies of horror and fraud.

 

He was likened to the central character in "Catch me if you can".

 

They said that he had travelled across Asia including Burma, Malaysia, China, Hong Kong and Thailand committing crimes related to drugs and murder. He had used fake passports to escape justice, they alleged.

 

They also said that his fingerprints were not found in the bags used to wrap the corpse in the freezer but were in fact those of Aaron Thomas Gabel, 40, another of the suspects. 

 

There were also prints of another person, said sanook.com.

 

they also reported that the dead man of Hungarian descent was the CEO of a Los Angeles firm in building construction and train track laying.

 

Police have also interviewed Peter's estranged wife again, they added.

Which begs the question "Why did 'Peter' keep a cut up body in his freezer for 8 years if he didn't kill him?"
Imo 'Peter's' telling porky pies.

This will keep the plods busy until something else more sensational lands on their lap.

Somebody trying to hold something over the other guy?   Waiting for the perfect time to get the body cremated or find a place to do it and work out the details of delivering a cutup corpse to a place for cremation with no questions asked?

Why do they keep mentioning cremation if the body is still in the bag?  Were certain parts cremated?


The other guy was cremated, not the frozen guy.

They are making a big deal out of this because it is so easy to solve as they know these guys are guilty of all kinds of stuff, and they have admitted it. Great work by the Thai Police in deed. If the lady next door hadn't gotten suspicious these boobs wouldn't have a clue of anything about it.

That's how the wallopers get a lot of their leads, dropped in by neighbours, friends, etc.  All's fair in love and war.

 

I find it intriguing that the body wasn't disposed of gradually over eight years, bits buried in different parts of the country, dumped in the sea, etc.  Then he's only have to answer for passport forgery and shooting at a raiding cop.

This is why the guy who posted that it may have been to hold something over another is feasible .

The fact that this Herbert La Fon moved around the world so often with impunity on forged passports not only makes a mockery of Thailand's passport security but many other countries, including Interpol.

Ex Vietnam, wanted by the FBI , moves around the world on forged passports while escaping all the time while being involved in murder and fraud on a global scale.

He sounds like a CIA operative, maybe some other nasty that was involved had something over him, and the fridge was the insurance stale mate, who knows, then what other reason is there other than complete insanity.

Yeah remember the Hotel owner turning in the bomber, The cops solved that one too, and took the reward money, If I were Thai I would never take the risk of implicating someone like that after that fiasco.

       Yes there must have been a reason to keep that body, or any half sane man would have gotton rid of it by now.

Or at all. I think in eight years I could have found the time to dump the pieces
