CCTV Footage tracked murdered British couple prior to their deaths

David Miller and Hannah Witheridge were murdered last September

The trial of two men accused of murdering Hannah Witheridge and David Miller on a Thai island has been shown CCTV footage of the British backpackers shortly before they were killed. Two Burmese workers are accused of killing the two Britons on a beach on Koh Tao last September. Police claimed that Zaw Lin and Win Zaw Htun, both 22, had confessed to the killings, but both later retracted their statements and said they had been tortured into making them. As their trial resumed, police told the court that CCTV had captured the last known movements of Ms Witheridge, 23, and Mr Miller, 24.

Police Colonel Cherdpong Chiewpreecha, superintendent of Investigation Police Division 8, said 17 cameras dotted along a road on the island had recorded pictures of the Britons.
Ms Witheridge and Mr Miller were at the same bar but were seen leaving separately with their friends. The court heard that nobody unfamiliar to them was seen following them.
Defence lawyers acting on behalf of the accused say they will be concentrating on DNA evidence in the case, amid claims that police were incompetent and mishandled evidence.
