'Thai Ted Bundy': Hundreds Of Human Bones Found In Pond Of Alleged Serial Killer
Hundreds of human bones have been found in a pond at the property of an alleged serial killer in Thailand.
Police made the grisly discovery on Friday while searching the home of 40-year-old Apichai Ongwisit after he was arrested over the suspected murder of his girlfriend.
It's claimed the wealthy property heir, who has been likened to notorious American serial killer Ted Bundy, forced his girlfriend Warinthorn Chaiyachet, 22, to sleep in a metal casket to stop her leaving him.
Britain's The Sun newspaper said Ongwisit appeared to have targeted a large number of women, killing them in a gruesome manner before disposing of their remains.
It's believed his girlfriend, nicknamed Kik, suffocated before he allegedly threw her body into the pond on his Bangkok property which is full of carnivorous alligator gars.
The alleged murder occurred last July, but the missing woman went undiscovered.
That was until police received a tip-off earlier this month that Kik had been murdered. On January 9 they found her body in the pond, tied to a metal gate and weighed down with dumbbells, The Sun reports.
She was identified by the large fish tattoo on her back.
Later police divers uncovered another 298 human bones in the water which suggests there could be many more victims, including a 12-year-old girl from a property nearby whose family believe she could be in the pond.
Ongwisit has been remanded in custody while investigators consider further charges.
Police are now looking to drain the pond in order to get a better understanding of the extent of his alleged killing spree.
The Sun said Ongwisit is the son of wealthy businessman Chalermchai Ongwisit, who was jailed for butchering a 15-year-old girl in 1983 but later shot dead.
However, the publication added his mother was accused of being the mastermind behind the crime but fled abroad with his younger sister.
