Body in a Freezer – level 3
Police charged three men after they raided a building in Thailand and found a body in a freezer. A police officer was injured during the raid on the four-storey building in Bangkok, where they also found guns and drugs.
Thai police suspected that a gang was using the building as a passport forging operation. The raid led investigators to discover a dismembered body. It was wrapped in a black plastic bag and hidden in a freezer. With a high number of visitors each year, Thailand has a booming black market for fake identity documents.
Gangs are known to sell passports on to drug traffickers while other passports are suspected to have ended up in the hands of Islamist militants.
Difficult words: raid (attack), forge (illegally make a copy of something), dismembered (cut into pieces).
