Police Lieutenant Colonel Padungsak Suekumnod, a Sattahip Police Inspector, received notification today, 14 March 2008, that Mr. Sompong Taptimthong or Mr. Kak, (42) who lived at 81 /1 Soi Rai Chaimongkol (Sattahip – Sukhumvit 31) Moo. 3, Sattahip had been shot and was lying dead on Sukhumvit Road behind a new group of shops.

Responding to the report, Police Colonel Supatee Boonkrong, Sattahip Chief of Police and his team, accompanied by Rojanatam Satan of the Sattahip Rescue Team, rushed to the crime scene where they discovered the dead body of Mr. Sompong , wearing a black leather jacket and jeans, lying on his side. There was a bullet hole in his forehead from which his brains and blood were dripping onto the road.

Police also found a black bag, which had been dropped on the road near his body containing the ID cards of two Thai females: Ms Nootsara Ang-silah (20) and Mrs kreah-fah KeunThai (25). As a result, the police then went to find Miss Nootsara Ang-silah, who had been Mr. Sompong’s ex-partner, to see if she could shed any light on murder of her ex-husband.

Ms Nootsara told the police that on 14 march, at 00.20 am., she had brought Mrs. kreah-fah, her friend, to stay with her in Soi Rai Chaimongkol, which was located near where her ex-husband, Mr. Sompong, had been staying. It came to Mr. Sompong’s notice that she had returned to live in the same soi, so he then went to visit her and begged her to return to him.

However, Ms Nootsara refused his offer, at which point, Mr. Sompong became angry, grabbed her bag and left the premises. She followed him and tried to recover her bag, but, instead of returning it, he beat her up badly. Ms Nootsara then went to report the matter to the police at about 2.00 am, returning to her residence afterwards.

She told the police that the following morning, she heard that her ex-husband had been shot dead, but had no idea who had shot him. The police then went to question a neighbour of Mr. Sompong’s, who said that he’d heard a gunshot at around 2.00 am., which woke him up, but he did not get up to investigate because the sound of the shooting was too far away, at the beginning of the soi.

Following this, the police went to question Mr. Sin, the father of the dead person, who said his son had left home at about 7.00 pm., saying he was only going to the end on of the soi, and had told his father not to worry because he would soon be back, but Mr. Sompong never returned.

From witnesses’ reports concerning a tall man who had accompanied Ms Nootsara to the police station to report the attack the previous night, the police suspect that at least two people had been involved in Mr. Sompong’s murder: his ex-wife and her boyfriend. In addition, police also suspected person or persons unknown due to Mr. Sompong’s previous history and police record as a suspected drug dealer and vehicle thief. He had also been arrested a few years ago, accused of murdering a lady boy and putting her body in a bush in the Banglamung area. However, as there had been no witnesses, Mr. Sompong was released for lack of evidence. He had also managed to avoid conviction in nearly every other criminal case he had been suspected of being involved in.

Police will further investigate his ex-wife and her boyfriend, as well as extending their search in an attempt to bring the killer to justice.
