Chon-Buri, the 8th of August 2010: At approximately 5:30pm on Sunday, Lieutenant Colonel Phakin Theekhawong (Koh Jan Police Investigator) was notified of a double homicide at a eucalyptus farm in Koh Jan, Chon-Buri. At team of police were dispatched to the incident to investigate.

At the scene, officers discovered the deceased bodies of Master Sahakit Tontrakun [13] and his brother Master Phatthana Tontrakun [9] in a patch of bushland adjacent to a local eucalyptus farm. The boy’s throats had been brutally slashed with a knife and left strewn on the ground. Initial estimates are that the boys had been dead for approximately 3 hours.

Further investigations revealed signs of a struggle, while a Honda Wave motorbike, belonging to the youngsters, was found laying on the ground approximately 15-meters from the murder scene.

Interrogations with the distressed parents of the deceased, Mr. Weera and Mrs. Sommai, revealed that the boys had been selling food for their mother at the local market and would have been on their way home at the time of the fatal attack. Mrs. Sommai revealed that they would have had approximately Bt1,000 in cash from the sale of the food, which was not found at the scene.

Both parents maintain that the offender knew the boys intended route home or had been following them prior to the attack, due to the remote location of the incident. Mr. Weera discovered the devastating murders when he went looking for the pair after they had not returned home from the market.

At present police suspect that the heinous crime was committed over the boy’s resistance of an attack instigated in order to steal their money, or a possible revenge killing perpetrated against the boys close family or relatives.

Officers are now appealing to the public for any information regarding this tragic incident, while investigations into the identity and whereabouts of the offender are continuing.
