Jul 02, 2021 | 

Two ladies who sold insurance and who had been missing since June 23rd have been found dead. 

They were in a submerged pick-up in a klong in the Ban Nayom area of Nam Pong district in Khon Kaen in the north east of Thailand. 

Arunrat,52, had been driving the Toyota Revo that had been reported missing. In the passenger seat was 55 year old Nicha. 

Initial investigations revealed they had died from lack of oxygen. There were no injuries on the bodies and all their possessions were intact. 

The ladies had been to collect insurance premiums and had last been seen at a som tam restaurant where they stayed from 2 pm to 8.30 pm. 

A Facebook appeal was launched after they failed to return home. 

Nam Pong police said it looked like an accident noting that the driver may have been unfamiliar with the road that was unlit. 

Tire marks were found on the road. 

They are inclined to rule out murder in the case though investigations continue.
