Thai police are searching for a dual Hungarian-Israeli citizen suspected of murdering a business partner and dumping his body in a rubber plantation in Phuket, the Bangkok Times reported this week.
According to the Times, police issued an arrest warrant for 35-year-old Moshe David on Sunday, who also goes by the nae Andras Ngmgth Gabor, after the body of Peter Reize was found last Friday.
The Times said the two men ran a business together on the island of Koh Samui, and police believe the killing followed a dispute over a land deal worth some 15 million baht, or nearly a half a million US Dollars. The paper also states that Reize had filed a complaint with police back in November, saying that David had threatened to kill him.
On Monday the Times ran a story saying that police questioned the Thai wife of David, who they refer to as “her common-law Hungarian husband”. The article says police see her as a possible accomplice to the killing, and believe that at least two other people were involved in the crime.
