Police found the body of an unidentified man, about 45 years old, lying on the floor. He was clad in green shorts, but no shirt. He had tattoos all over his body. Blood was spurting from his mouth and nose. There was a spent bullet lying near his body. On inspecting the body, police found what appeared to be a gunshot wound on his head. There was also a cut under his right armpit and a bullet buried in his right shoulder. Police believe that the man had been dead for about five hours.

Police questioned the owner of the house, Mr. Noi Narong (48) and his wife. They said that the man was a drifter and had asked permission to stay in the shack for four days. They said that they did not know his name; only that he was from Suphanburi Province and that he formerly worked as a construction worker in Pattaya. The couple occasionally gave the man food. They did not know if he had any enemies.

On the evening of 29 August, 2007, another drifter, Mr. Niran, who sometimes stayed in the shack, returned to retrieve his belongings. Mr. Niran and the unidentified man seemed to get along and drank some whiskey together. At 8 PM that night, Mr. Niran took some of his possessions and left the unidentified man alone in the shack.

The next morning, Mr. Noi entered the shack and was shocked to find the unidentified man bloody and dead. He immediately informed the police. While awaiting the arrival of the authorities, Mr. Niran returned for the rest of his belongings. Mr. Niran hurried away and disappeared.

The police found Mr. Niran about five hundred meters from the shack and detained him as a possible suspect or a material witness. According to the police the man, whose full name was Mr. Niran Tang-Gnern (55), form Nakorn Rachasima, appeared to be intoxicated.

Mr. Niran denied any involvement in the man’s attack. He claimed that after drinking with the deceased, he went to stay in another deserted house, not far from where the incident occurred. When he returned to retrieve his clothes, he saw the man in a prostrate position, but didn’t realize that he was dead. Mr. Niran suggested that Mr. Noi, the owner of the shack, could have been the perpetrator, as he had tried, unsuccessfully, to evict the man from the shack.

However, police weren’t buying Mr. Niran’s theory and will investigate further. They also detained Mr. Noi, the owner of the shack, as another possible suspect. Possible motives for the crime are that an enemy of the victim killed him or that the victim got into a drunken brawl with someone. Police are not ruling out that there were more than one attacker. Police will pursue the investigation and bring all guilty parties to justice.
