Chilling Crime in Chon Buri: The Map Prachan Murder Mystery Unraveled

In the shadows of the serene waters of Map Prachan reservoir in Chon Buri, a gripping tale of mystery and murder unfolded, straight out of a noir thriller. One that would see the tranquil Thai district of Bang Lamung become the backdrop for a chilling crime that gripped the nation and beyond.

Under the cover of night, divers emerged from the depths, their find: a barrel. But this was no ordinary barrel. Inside, encased in concrete, was a tale of betrayal and murder that spanned countries, friendships, and the dark underbelly of expat life.

The saga began with a shocking revelation from South Korean authorities. A Korean man, ensnared in a web of crime, confessed to the heinous act of murdering his compatriot. His victim, identified as 34-year-old Roh Eui-jong, was not just killed; he was betrayed by someone he may have considered a friend, and then callously stuffed into a concrete-filled barrel on an ill-fated journey towards Pattaya.

What seemed like a plot lifted from the darkest of crime novels was, in fact, the result of an investigation by the diligent officers at Khlong Tan police station. They had pieced together the tragic end of Roh, whose body was discovered concealed within a plastic barrel, unceremoniously dumped in the Map Prachan reservoir.

Of the three suspects implicated in this macabre deed, two have thus far been ensnared by the long arm of the law. One found his flight from justice end in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, while the other was captured in South Korea’s own Gyeongnam province. Yet, the third, Kim Hyung-won, remains a specter, evading capture near the Myanmar border, always one step ahead in this deadly game of cat and mouse.

The twisted tale took a darker turn as the South Korean police extracted a confession from the arrested suspect. A tale that began in an entertainment venue in the bustling RCA area, where Roh was drugged with a sleeping pill, his resistance nullified as he was bundled into the night in a car. A brief struggle for freedom on the path to Pattaya ended with Roh being strangled to death, a life extinguished in the blink of an eye.

The perpetrators, in a bid to hide their grim deed, took Roh’s body to a secluded house in the Rom Klao area in Bangkok. There, they committed the final act of concealment, stuffing Roh’s body in a barrel and consigning him to the depths of the Map Prachan reservoir.

In response to this heinous crime, the Khlong Tan police acted swiftly, seizing the suspect’s car for forensic examination. A beacon of hope in the quest for justice, as the Southern Bangkok Criminal Court issued arrest warrants for the trio, charging them with murder, body concealment, illicit confinement, and theft. A clarion call that justice, however delayed, will not be denied.

This tale of betrayal, murder, and the relentless pursuit of justice serves as a stark reminder of the fragility of trust and the depths to which humanity can sink. And as the waters of Map Prachan reservoir continue to lap against its shores, they whisper a cautionary tale of the darkness that lurks in the hearts of men.

    This story is like something out of a movie. It’s chilling to think that such a betrayal could happen in real life. Makes you wonder who you can really trust.

    • TrueCrimeFanatic May 15, 2024

      Right? I’ve been following this case closely and the details just keep getting more twisted. It’s sad that Roh had to meet such a tragic end.

      • Skeptic101 May 15, 2024

        But don’t you think there’s more to it than meets the eye? Maybe Roh was involved in something dark too. It doesn’t justify the crime, but could explain the escalation.

    • JaneDoe101 May 15, 2024

      Definitely makes you wary of the company you keep. Such a tragedy for Roh and his family. I’m following to see if they ever capture Kim Hyung-won.

    What stands out to me is the efficiency of the police work across borders. It’s a testament to international cooperation in law enforcement. Hope justice is served swiftly.

    • WorldWatcher May 15, 2024

      True, but let’s not forget that this is an exception, not the norm. Many cases don’t get this level of attention or effort. It’s tragic but highlights global inconsistencies in justice.

    This murder is a grim reminder of the depths of human depravity. However, it also shows the resilience of society to bring such acts to light and seek justice, a duality of human nature.

    • Cynic22 May 15, 2024

      Is it really resilience or just a desire for vengeance? Sometimes, I think people are more interested in the punishment than in understanding why these things happen.

  4. TravelBug May 15, 2024

    It’s shocking to hear something so horrific happening in such a beautiful place. Thailand, and especially Pattaya, has always felt so welcoming and safe to me.

    • Nomad May 15, 2024

      Unfortunately, no place is immune to crime, regardless of its beauty or perceived safety. It’s incidents like these that remind us to always be aware of our surroundings.

  5. MysterySolver May 15, 2024

    I wonder if there will be a documentary or some true crime coverage on this case. The details are just too eerie and the international aspect adds another layer of complexity.

    • FilmFanatic May 15, 2024

      Oh, for sure! This has all the makings of a hit documentary. The intrigue, the international chase, the mystery of Kim Hyung-won still being at large. I’d watch it.

      • EthicsInMedia May 15, 2024

        While it could make for compelling viewing, let’s not forget that at the heart of it, this is a real tragedy. I hope any coverage respects the victim and their family.

  6. ConcernedCitizen May 15, 2024

    This case raises serious questions about the dark side of expat life and the dangers lurking when laws are flouted. It’s a wake-up call for many living abroad.

    • ExpatLife May 15, 2024

      Absolutely. As an expat, it’s easy to feel invincible in a foreign country. But we must remember to stay cautious and keep an eye out for each other.

  7. bookworm May 15, 2024

    The way this article is written reminds me so much of a thriller novel. It’s gripping and horrifying all at once. I’m hooked but also deeply saddened.

  8. GlobalNomad May 15, 2024

    In all of this darkness, the ray of light is the effort put into the investigation. It’s reassuring to see countries collaborate to seek justice for Roh.
