British man wanted by Thai police detained in Spain


GUARDIA Civil officers in Ibiza have detained a 46-year-old British man wanted by Thai police for the grisly murder of a woman in 2014.

Shane Kenneth Looker, 47, is being held by Spanish police who will await extradition papers from Thai authorities.

He is wanted in connection with the murder and butchery of bar girl Laxami ‘Pook’ Manochat, reportedly his girlfriend.

Her dismembered body was discovered stuffed into a suitcase and floating in the Mae Klong River in Kanchanaburi on November 13, 2014.

Thai authorities issued an international arrest warrant through Interpol for Mr Looker, after he was identified on CCTV as leaving a bar on Sukhumvit Road on November 1.

It was the last time she was seen before her body was discovered.
