Murder for hire: Gang paid just 5,000 baht to murder teen in drugs dispute

Sanook reported that a gang of six young men were paid just 5,000 baht to murder a 17 year old at a school football pitch in Khon Kaen. 

 

The orders came from a man known only to the gang as "Thep So-Lo". He ordered the hit via Facebook and demanded that a video be taken to prove what had happened. 

 

The suspects in custody - whose ages range from 16 to 23 - have told police that the hit order came from a man they didn't know but who was not paid for drugs dealt by the victim.

 

The victim was 17 year old Kurusat who has been named under the moniker "Red Ban Toom" in the media. 

 

All the suspects have been charged with premeditated murder.

 

Two guns, two Sparta knives and a broken baseball bat were found at the home of a 37 year old man who was not involved in the murder, reported Sanook. These items are now in the possession of the Khon Kaen police. 

 

A clip has shown feet and hand held weapons being used in the gang attack earlier this week at a well known but unnamed school at night. 

 

Meanwhile two of the suspects named only as "Bas" and "Ball" have said they were invited by elder friends to take part and felt pressured by Thai cultural mores (graeng jai) to go along. 

 

They said that they only did one kick each and it was their understanding that the victim was just going to be given a "warning" but not murdered. 

 

They apologized to the victim saying it was a mistake to kill him.

 

They believed that when they left the scene the victim was still looking up and alive.

Invited to be part of a team-building exercise? Of course blame cultural norms rather than accept responsibility for one’s actions....

 

only one kick each....so two kicks twice as bad? 

 

he was looking up when they left....Interesting comment

It's not clear from the article that the guy who ordered the murder on Facebook was arrested or not. He should be prime suspect #1.

Thai kids are just learning nothing. A big majority of them simply has very poor family values or education.

What never ceases to amaze me is how the Thai police get all these criminals to actually ADMIT they did the crime. And then, in many cases, they take them to the scene and video record them as they "re-enact" the crime.

And that seems to work with Pharangs, too.

Maybe, we only hear about the ones that confess. In fact, I guess that would make sense. If they claim they're innocent, their faces shouldn't be plastered all over the media sites.
