Thai police claim that two Burmese migrant workers have confessed
to killing British tourists Hannah Witheridge and David Miller on the Thai island of Koh Tao. Witheridge and Miller, both in their early twenties, were found slain on Sept. 15 near the beachfront spot where they were vacationing on the popular tourist destination. Police questioned three workers in connection with the murders. Two confessed to the crimes while the third denied involvement.
After autopsy results on Witheridge's body revealed traces of semen from two men, investigators conjectured that Witheridge had been raped and killed by two men while a third watched. David Miller's father stated that he suspected his son was killed while attempting to stop the assault on Ms. Witheridge.
Medical examiners concluded that Witheridge died from head wounds while Miller succumbed to blows to the head and drowning.
Authorities are currently awaiting test results to see if the DNA samples left on Witheridge's body match any of the suspects in custody.
