Mr.Nirut, from Chantaburi province, was head shot by three .9mm bullets and died instantly, yesterday, July 23, in front of his office “Kunaparp”, located at 519/38, in Niran Grand Villa Condo, Soi Arunothai, Central Pattaya. It is known that the victim was running several illegal businesses, including non-governmental loans and was also involved in drug pushing.

As of yesterday afternoon, July 23, Pol.Col.Nopadol Wongnom, Pattaya Superintendent, announced that the case had been handed over to Pol.Lt.Col.Chartchai Ruen-thawin, Deputy Superintendent. The relatives, the”lieutenant “of the deceased and witnesses were questioned late into the night. What progress there has been relates to the motives for the murder and the appearance of the suspects.

As regards the two suspects, police investigators checked all the CCTVs in the area of the condo and managed to get a positive identification from the camera installed in front of building B, about 50 metres away from the incident. This camera had clearly detected the face of the gunman who left the pillion seat of the motorbike to shoot the victim. In addition, the camera had also detected a black Toyoto Vios car, which apparently came to point out the victim, escort the murderer’s motorbike and observe the killing, after which it drove away at speed. The last two numbers of the Vios’ license plate were 33; a Bangkok plate.

A witness confirmed that the motorbike driver suspect, who was wearing a helmet, had a chubby appearance and was about 170 – 175 cms. in height. The gunman, however, did not wear a helmet. Both of them were wearing black and using a blue and white Yamaha Fino motorbike, licence 249, Chonburi. Police checked the licence number and found out that it was a fake.

Pol.Col.Nopadol Wongnom added that the deceased had had a criminal record, having been arrested by Pattaya police, for the possession of a gun and Yah Ice (Methamphetamine) in the period July – November 2006. Both cases are still going through the courts, but will now be dropped as he has been murdered. Police revealed the fact that there were 5 major motives for the killing, such as Illegal business dealings, non-governmental loans, gambling, drugs and adultery. However, police are not prepared to reveal the details in order to prevent the case being compromised. Pol.Col.Nopadol is hopeful that the case will be solved within the next few days.
