Police said Mr Segarra, 37, was still in Thailand due to two records of cash withdrawals made from ATMs. Money is the likely motive for the killing and up to 10 Thais could be accomplices, Gen Mamen said. The murder came to light after body parts, believed to belong to the businessman, were found at several sites along Chao Phraya river.
