After confessing to Phuket police to the murder of his girlfriend Pischa “Lek” Nampadung, Nico Papke has revealed what drove him to kill the young woman and what happened in the days after it took place.
Papke was escorted by police from Vachira Phuket Hospital to Chalong Police Station on Tuesday after he had been receiving treatment after attempting to slit his own throat with a box cutter when he learnt police were on their way to arrest him on the 9th of July.
Officers closed in on the German man after Ms Pischa’s body was found in the Phuket jungle on July 9th. Police questioned the suspect on July 18th. Lt Chanat Hongsittichaikul who was conducting the questioning recounted to the media what was said over the course of the questioning.
Mr Papke said that on July 2nd he had a serious argument with his girlfriend after finding messages and photos on her phone making him believe she was seeing another man. Originally denying any involvement with another man Ms Pischa told him that she was in fact in love with someone else.
Papke apparently climbed on the woman and with all of his weight on top of her strangled her until she was silent on the bed. He admitted to being angry and confused and left to purchase cigarettes returning back to Ms Pischa’s rented apartment about an hour later. Realising that she had not moved, tried to wake her it was then he realised he had killed her.
Shortly after friends of his girlfriend came to visit her but he told them she was unwell and had taken medicine to help her sleep. He stayed in the room with her dead body for two nights before fluid begun leaking out of her mouth due to decomposition.
Lt Chanat told the media that tests carried out on the mattress on July 12th confirmed this part of the story to be true. Under cover of darkness on July 3rd Papke loaded Ms Pischa’s corpse into the boot of a rental car a Toyota Vios, then drove to the site where he dumped her body the following morning.
Her body has been sent to a forensic laboratory in Surat Thani to try and ascertain if the cause of death is as the German man describes.
Police confirmed the area where the body was left by using information left in the Sat Nav of the rental car.
