Thailand: Update--Scotland Yard to Join Thais in Investigating British Double-Murder

According to The Associated Press, London’s Metropolitan Police reports that Scotland Yard detectives will travel to Thailand to help with the investigation into the killing of two British tourists, David Miller, 24, and Hannah Witherage, 23,  who were brutally killed on September 15.

Police said in a statement Saturday (October 18) that officers would work with Thai police “in ensuring that whoever murdered David Miller and Hannah Witheridge is brought to justice in a fair and transparent way.”
Witheridge and Miller were found September 15 on a beach on Koh Tao Island.
COMMENT: Thai police contend that two migrant workers from Myanmar have confessed to the killings, but last week the British government summoned a senior Thai diplomat to express concern about the way the investigation had been handled.
The British delegation follows talks this week between Prime Minister David Cameron and Thai leader Prayuth Chan-ocha.
This report will be updated as new information becomes available.
