In the case of the ex-Fah-Mai local council candidate of Pattaya, who was murdered on May 31, a Banglamung Police superintendent announced, on June 1, that they had found a witness who had seen the victim involved in a serious dispute with two people on a motorcycle, slightly before the time of the murder. Police now consider adultery the prime motive.

Referring to the case of Mr. Jakrit Kamseng akaTing (37), the ex-candidate in the election for Pattaya City Council shot dead by the side of the Pattaya railway line in the early morning of May 31, Pol.Col.Sarayut Sa-gnuen-bpo-kai, at 1pm on June 1, informed relatives and friends of the deceased that there were many likely motives for the killing, especially as he had many enemies. First and foremost, he was a Pattaya volunteer police and a bailsman in criminal cases. He was also involved in investigating contentious cases of music copyright violation, whereby he would inform police of bar-owner suspects who would be subsequently arrested.

However, Pol.Col.Sarayut further informed the interested parties that police had found an important witness who had seen Mr. Jakrit having a serious argument with a Thai male motorcyclist (30-40) and a female pillion passenger just prior to his being killed. After the dispute, Mr. Jakrit had attempted to quit the area quickly on his motorbike, but the mystery Thai couple had pursued Mr. Jakrit and about 500 metres away had pulled out a gun and shot the victim dead, subsequently riding off at speed.

Although, police now consider adultery to be the prime motive, they have still not ruled out a litany of other motives, including Mr. Jakrit being a private loaner in conflict with a bad debtor; animosity caused by the music copyright investigations, or by being either a bailsman, or a volunteer policeman. They have, however, ruled out being a candidate for election as not being a sufficiently strong cause for murder.

Police believe that the gunman probably knows Mr. Jakrit very well and had made an appointment to meet to clear up some problem, which they were unable to resolve. However, police already have a clue to who was the likely killer and expect to arrest the criminal imminently.
