“Ghost” vagrant turns out to be a rapist – he’s arrested just days before statute of limitations expires
A man who raped a 13 year old child in Nakhon Panom in the north east of Thailand nearly twenty years ago has finally been arrested living the life of a hobo in Phrapadaeng near Bangkok.
Wilai, now 51, raped “Bow” after pulling her into bushes in 2000. He was disturbed during the act and neighbors pressed the police to arrest him and finally after several years a warrant was issued.
But by then Wilai was long gone and had assumed the life of an itinerant doing odd jobs. He was called “Ai Phee Dip” (a kind of ghost) by the locals who had no idea he was wanted for rape.
Sanook reported that an arrest team from the CSD finally nabbed the suspect just 12 or 13 days from when the statute of limitations for rape would expire.
