Body of murdered woman dumped in Samoeng identified as San Sai council worker

The body of a murdered woman found dumped beside a road in Samoeng yesterday, July 18 has been identified as a council worker from San Sai.

The body of Miss Wilawan Boonruang, 50 from Moo 3 San Sai Noi was discovered besides Chiang Mai – Samoeng Road in Moo 10 Tambon Samoeng at around 1 p.m. wrapped in a vinyl advertising sign.

Miss Boonruang was found to be suffering from multiple blows to her face and head, initially making her initially unidentifiable. A number of “talisman” tattoos on her back allowed relatives to positively identify her overnight.

The victim, a well-respected accountant for San Sai District, was last seen on July 16 at around 1 p.m. but last posted to Facebook at 5 p.m. the same day.

While no one has been arrested at the time of writing (3 p.m. Friday), it’s known that Miss Boonruang was in a relationship with a married former military officer and there had been some conflict previously.

Police are investigating including studying CCTV footage in an attempt to identify who dumped Miss Boomruang’s body.
