CCTV footage shows UK man picking up Thai sex worker before allegedly murdering her
CCTV footage shows a British motorcycle picking up a Thai sex worker on his bike before allegedly killing her with a snooker cue and machete.
Neil Henry Elliott, 46, was on Friday (May 1) taken on a public parade in handcuffs to point at the spot where he collected the woman, named Onn, and drove her away on his motorbike on Wednesday night (April 29).
He was barefooted and wearing handcuffs, a surgical mask and a blue sports t-shirt.
The motorcycle fanatic - who had pictures on his chat messaging app Line suggesting he works for the Kawasaki Racing Team - allegedly confessed to killing the sex worker.
Leading the investigation, Police Colonel Chiddecha Songhong, from the Bang Lamung district station, said today (May 1): ''We are checking cameras and have ordered investigations across the area to identify the victim.
''We know from CCTV that the suspect picked her up at 9:13pm and took her back to his house where he killed her.
''If anybody has information about who she is they must tell the police immediately.''
Police checked cameras from a building across the road that appear to show Elliott chatting with the woman aged between 35 and 40 for around two minutes before riding away with her on the back of a motorcycle.
She was wearing a short dress and trainers while a second sex worker stands besides her before turning away.
Police are still trying to identify the woman after she was found dead in Elliott's home in notorious 'Sin City' resort of Pattaya, eastern Thailand, yesterday. Officers said she did not have any identification on her.
Elliott, from Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, allegedly admitted to police that he picked up the woman from the red-light street Soi Buakhao, a road packed with bars, strip clubs and massage parlours, before they returned to his single-story home.
They then took Yaba - a powerful form of methamphetamine.
Elliott allegedly later hit Onn with a wooden snooker cue until it broke during the struggle before slashing her with a 60cm long machete on the wrists and neck, police claim.
It is believed he then left the building and crashed his motorcycle before paramedics who treated him alerted police.
Pictures from the property yesterday afternoon show the broken snooker cue on the blood-covered ground and the machete on the covered snooker table. A large Northern Ireland flag was hanging at the entrance to Elliott's single-storey property and police confirmed Elliott was from the country.
Elliott was immediately arrested on suspicion of murder. He was handcuffed and hauled into a police pick-up truck before being driven away to the station for questioning.
The police chief said: ''We found the victim in the bathroom. She had stab wounds on her neck and on her right wrist.
''The suspect he met her on Soi Buakhao and took her home. He said they both used drugs which lead to chaos and he attacked her until she was dead.
"Initially, we have not found his identification documents yet but he has admitted his crime.
"He will be remanded at the station for interrogation while the officers will search his house thoroughly again.
''There were blood stains on the floor and blood on many areas of the room. A snooker cue was broken and a knife about 60 centimeters with blood stains was on the floor.''
Pattaya, on Thailand's eastern seaboard, is best known for its notorious round-the-clock sex industry and is popular with British tourist and expats.
