Third suspect in massacre of six people in Vietnam arrested

Police in the southern province of Binh Phuoc decided to prosecute the third suspect in the killing of six people in a family in Binh Phuoc Province early July, one month after the capture of the other two alleged murderers.

Tran Dinh Thoai, 27, an inhabitant of the Mekong delta province of Vinh Long, temporarily residing in a suburban district of Ho Chi Minh City, Go Vap District, was nabbed by Binh Phuoc police.

Thoai is now under investigation on charges of murder and robbery.

According to Binh Phuoc police, after one month interrogation, Nguyen Hai Duong, the leader of the bloodbath, confessed that before he entangled Vu Van Tien in the murder and robbery, he asked Thoai to partake; however, at last, Thoai refused to participate in the murder thanks to his relative’s advice against not doing.

Thus, the man is considered a suspect in the murder because he agreed to be Duong’s accomplice on July 7, when wood magnet Le Van My, his wife, son, daughter and two other relatives were allegedly killed by Nguyen Hai Duong and Vu Van Tien, even though he was not at the scene when the bloodbath took place.
