Among the crowd of onlookers police found the body of Mr. Grairerk Kamrim or Aoun [34], residing at 236 Moo. 10 Nongprue, in the seat of his motorbike which had fallen against a road-side food stall, which was now in total disarray from the shooting. The victim still held a 100-baht bank note in his hand. He had been shot twice by a 9mm pistol – one to his right temple, and the other to the back of his head. Police also found a bullet case on the ground, 2 bullet holes on the wall and 2 on a kitchen pot.

An eye witness said that two men on a motorbike [a blue-silver, Honda wave 100, reg. no. Por-6226, province unknown], had been waiting for the victim close to a food stall. When Mr. Grairerk arrived to order some food, the man on the back seat pulled a gun and fired 3 shots. Mr Grairerk fell against the stall, and then the shooter walked towards him and pointed the gun at the victim’s forehead and fired the last shot and rushed back to his motorbike. The two men then sped away.

Mr. Somchai Tantaton, [40], the food stall owner told the police that Mr. Grairerk lived 500 metres away and was a very popular person in the area. People called him “Aoun behind the market”. On that night he stopped by to order some food. While he was giving Mr. Grairerk the bag of food and was just about to take the money, a motor bike arrived with two men on it and the one on the back seat pulled out a gun and shot Mr. Grairerk until he fell down.

The victim’s relatives told police he had a restaurant behind the market but he and his family also ran a loan shark business. He also had several loan shark business partners.

Another reliable source said Mr. Grairerk had a conflict with Mr. Nuay [last name unknown] who was in the same business and they were due to have an appointment the following day.

At this stage police presume Mr. Grairerk was murdered because of his shady business interests or due to debts or gambling.

However his relatives and associates will be questioned further and his body would be sent for autopsy. Police hope to bring the killer(s) to justice soon.
