SATTAHIP – November 20, 2012[Pattaya Daily News]; at 2:30 a.m., a report of a boat crewman being murdered was received by Pol. Sub. Lt. Sinsamut Boontassana, investigation officer, Sattahip police station. He went to inspect the scene with Pol. Col. Chonnaphat Nawalak, Superintendent, Sattahip police station; Pol. Lt. Col. Prakorb Saengpring, Deputy Superintendent; Pol. Lt. Col. Niphon Pomsanarm, Deputy Superintendent; Pol. Lt. Col. Thapanat Chayarnphat, Inspector; the detective police team and the rescue officer of Sawangrojjanathammasathan Sattahip foundation.

The incident occurred at the Pethai bridge Moo 4 Tambon Bang Saray, Amphur Sattahip, Chonburi province. At the scene in the middle of the bridge, police found many crewmembers standing around to look at the dead body of the unidentified male crewmember, lying in a pool of blood.

The long-haired, dark-skinned victim was approximately 30 years old. He was wearing jeans and a short-sleeve blue shirt. His face and mouth were stabbed repeatedly by a knife. There were also severe wounds on his neck, breast and arm. He had been stabbed a total of 10 times. About 20 meters away at the end of the bridge, police found traces of blood that had dripped all the way along a trail to the body, and broken bottles of liquor lay scattered around.

Police questioned a witness, Mrs. Noi Pimphannee, age 40, nationality Cambodian. She told police that she saw the victim sitting and drinking liquor with four crewmember friends.

Then they got drunk and had a quarrel, but the victim shouted to scold his friends, until they got angry and together beat him. They used a spata knife to hack at his mouth and his face, and also used a sharp long knife to stab him repeatedly. The victim tried to run away, but only ran a short distance before he collapsed and died. The trouble-making crewmen then ran away to get on their boat and escape to the sea.

From their initial investigation, police assumed that the victim and the trouble makers were foreign crews who came into Thailand illegally and were all probably friends.

As for the motive behind the fatal stabbing, police assumed that the victim got drunk and was abusive, which made his friends angry, so they killed him cruelly. Initially, the police have an inkling about the group of trouble makers. So the commander sent the detective police team to follow up to arrest the suspects. He expected that the detectives will be able to arrest them soon.
