Cambodia arrests man wanted for killing Spanish national in Bangkok

PHNOM PENH: The prime suspect in the grisly murder and dismemberment of a Spanish national in Bangkok has been arrested in Cambodia, police said Monday. Multiple body parts belonging to businessman David Bernat were found floating in Bangkok’s Chao Praya river last month. Last week they named their chief suspect as Artur Segarra, 36, also a Spanish national, saying they were confident he remained inside Thailand because he had recently withdrawn money from a cash machine inside the country. But Cambodian police said Segarra was arrested in a restaurant on Sunday in the city of Sihanoukville. The wide Chao Praya winds its way through Bangkok, which boasts a large network of canals, and it is not unusual for bodies to be dumped in the city’s waterways. But it is rare for a foreigner to meet such a grisly fate.
