- Journalist Noelia Cañas receives a letter from Artur Segarra, sentenced to life imprisonment in Thailand for murder
- Noelia Cañas: “In the letter, he referred to me as ‘cousin’ so as not to raise the suspicions of the officials.”
- The similarities between the two cases are that they killed famous people after a dispute and mutilated their bodies
‘Let’s see’ received exclusively a letter from Artur Segarrathe Spaniard, who is serving a life sentence in a Bangkok prison for his killing and mutilation by David Bernat in 2016. In particular, the letter is addressed to our colleague Noelia Cañas, and in this, Artur explains his daily life in a prison in Thailand known for being one of the toughest in the country, with more to say about the case of Daniel Sancho.
In the letter, Segarra called the journalist “cousin” and did not raise suspicions from prison officials: “He wrote it so that those who controlled the letters would think I was a relative and not know he was writing to a media outlet,” Noelia explained.
In his letter, Segarra invites people to visit Thailand but warns about the place where, according to him, many crimes are committed:
“I encourage you to visit Thailand, which is a beautiful country with beautiful, humble, kind people who are always smiling! With excellent food and beautiful beaches (…), I encourage young people to come; there are some scandalous parties and some beautiful women! But, above all, do not visit Kho Thao, where, unfortunately, the murders number in the dozens”.
Segarra also has the letter of support for Daniel Sanchothe, accused in the murder of Edwin Arrieta, and with whom he has similarities regarding the crimes they are accused of:
“Please pray for Mr. Sancho and that his presumption of innocence will be respected. Prayer is a good defense against grief and helps a lot.
The similarity of the crimes of Sancho and Segarra
The crimes for which Segarra was sentenced to life imprisonment and the ones that kept Sancho in prison were remarkably similar. As Noelia Cañas explained, both confessed murderers of people with whom they have a relationship and those who killed after the dispute.
In addition, in both cases, there is the mutilation of corpses: “Both try to pick up the pieces of their victims; one throws them into the river, and the other into the sea”.
