Antonio Bagnato Arrested In Cambodia Tyler Gerard Charged

Thai police have made significant progress in solving the kidnapping and murder of Australian gangster Wayne Schneider earlier this week in Pattaya.

The prime suspect, Antonio Bagnato, is now in custody in Phnom Penh following his arrest by Cambodian cops on Thursday afternoon at hotel on 82nd Street, according to the kampucheathmey.com news website.

The chief of military police in Phnom Penh’s Daun Pehn district confirmed the capture of Bagnato to local media saying senior officials will co-ordinate with Thai authorities to extradite him back to Thailand.

Meanwhile, 21-year-old American Tyler Gerard, who was captured trying to flee the country on Wednesday morning, has been charged with kidnapping, premeditated murder and concealment of the body following a confession to police of his role in the murder plot.

He told interrogators that he drove a rented pickup to the home of Schneider in the Jomtien Park Villas estate with four others, Bagnato, American Isaac Stetson and two Australians identified only as Jay and Toe, where they beat their victim unconscious before putting the body in the back of the truck and driving to a secluded area in Sattahip district where the gang buried the body.

It is unclear at this time where the killing took place.

Deputy national police chief Pol Gen Pongsapat Pongcharoen and two other deputy chiefs, oversaw Gerard re-enact the crime on Friday morning.

Bagnato’s wife, Siriphat Saimart, 25, has been cleared of any involvement in the plot after she was detained and questioned on Wednesday after investigators discovered she had rented the vehicle used by her husband and his gang.

Thai police believe some of the suspects are still hiding in Thailand while others have escaped but expect to make more arrests in the next 48 hours.
