25yo British schoolteacher, Harris Binotti, sought after Myanmar murder.

Postby CEOCambodiaNews » Mon Nov 07, 2016 10:44 am

Myanmar police are looking for a British teacher who they believe might have fled the country after his colleague was found dead following a night of drinking in downtown Yangon.

The 45-year-old victim, also a British man, was found dead inside his co-worker’s apartment with wounds on his head and chest, police said. His wife told officers the pair had been out drinking on Friday night and that she had been unable to reach her husband the following morning.

She contacted authorities on Sunday after reportedly discovering his body inside his 25-year-old colleague’s apartment in Yangon’s downtown riverside district.

“The victim and defendant are school teachers from Horizon international school and they are friends,” a local officer said.

The 25-year-old was being sought by police and remained at large, he added.

“The other teacher has left the country today without informing anyone,” said a police officer in Kyauktada township.

The international school, a private institution that offers classes from kindergarten to high school, did not immediately respond to requests for comment. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/ ... found-dead

It has been reported elsewhere that the suspect's girlfriend called the victim's wife during the night because the two men were fighting. It was not reported if the girlfriend was present at the apartment when the murder took place.

According to Binotti's Facebook page, he was teaching at Brainworks-Total School in Yangon, and not Horizon International School as reported by the Myanmar police earlier.

Binotti was teaching at Western International School in Phomn Penh until September 2015, when he moved to Brainworks School in Yangon.

The lifeless body of Peter Gary Ferguson, known as Gary, was found in Binotti's apartment - on the top floor of this building.
A loud argument in English was heard by a neighbour in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Elderly neighbour Myint Myint, who lives on the ground floor of the building where the body was found, said she had heard people arguing.
"I heard their cries, saying: 'Go, go,' but I can't understand the rest as it was in English," she told AFP.
"I heard them throwing things. I think it happened around 4:00 am (on Saturday). Then they became silent."

Peter Gary Ferguson RIP.

Only a truly heartless and callous person would remark that two job slots have opened up unexpectedly.

Good odds he'll be in Cambodia within a week due to past connection, but if he was smart h'ed head to Isaan and chill while he gets some new documents. He won't last long here unless he can bribe his way many times, he'll need a six figure bank account.

Cherchez la femme - where was Binotti's girlfriend on the night ? If she was there when it all happened, then she's the big witness.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, neighbours in three nearby apartments said they heard two men and a woman arguing between midnight and 4.30am on Saturday.
However, it is also reported that Binotti's girlfriend and Ferguson's wife discovered the body together.
The police account is based on interviews with the two women, who told authorities that they discovered the body together on Sunday morning after several phone calls to the victim went unanswered.
In that case, who was the woman heard arguing in the apartment ? Neighbours say they were all speaking English...
