Thai policeman admits murders

A Thai police detective yesterday confessed to murdering two British backpackers at a popular tourist destination last month. He said he shot the man after feeling unable to win a physical argument and then in rage killed the woman by mistake. Sergeant Somchai Visetsingha admitted shooting Adam Lloyd, 25, and Vanessa Arscott, 24, on September 9 near the River Kwai in Kanchanaburi. He surrendered to the authorities yesterday morning. He had been sheltering with ethnic Karen rebels since fleeing Kanchanaburi following the incident, Thai police said. During his emotional confession Mr Somchai apologised to Ms Arscott’s parents, Joyce and Graham, from Ashburton, Devon, and asked for their forgiveness. Group Profile
