Police baffled as charges are dropped
Police have opposed the prosecution's decision to drop murder charges against Dr Wisuth Boonkasemsanti.
Investigators were adamant Dr Wisuth should stand trial on charges of murdering his missing wife, Dr Phassaporn, but the prosecution said there was not enough concrete evidence.
Pol Maj-Gen Jongrak Chuthanond, deputy city commissioner and head of the investigation team, said the case would be forwarded to the attorney-general for a final say.
Dr Wisuth would have been charged with the premeditated murder of his wife, illegal detention, forcing her to follow his instructions against her will and destroying and hiding her body.
Pol Maj-Gen Jongrak said there was enough evidence to substantiate the charges. He said he would send the attorney general the investigation report into the murder case and another on the forgery of documents.
The physician allegedly forged two letters in his wife's name and sent them to her boss and her children in March.
He was charged with killing his wife after DNA tests showed human flesh found at a building where he rented a room belonged to her.
