A Thai man has been arrested on suspicion of being involved in the murder of a Japanese national that resulted in male body parts being found in a Bangkok suburb, police sources said Wednesday, with the victim allegedly killed by two fellow countrymen.

The arrest late Tuesday came after Thai newspaper Thairath and other local media reported over the weekend citing police sources that the body parts had been put into black plastic bags and were found in the province of Nonthaburi, which neighbors Bangkok, on Friday.

The suspect confessed to police that he was hired to drive three Japanese men to a factory in western Bangkok and that one of them was later killed and dismembered, according to the media reports.
