Chumphon drug suspect hangs himself in cell

A drug suspect, who was re-arrested this week nine months after his release, hanged himself inside a detention cell at a police station in Chumphon’s Lamae district early Tuesday, police said.

 

When police checked the cell at 6am, they found that Sarawut Kramut, 39, was dead.

 

Sarawut was arrested on Monday and detained at the police station after officers seized 207 methamphetamine pills and 3.93 grams of crystal meth at his house.

 

After finding him dead, police checked footage of a security camera in the detention cell and found that at 1.48am, the suspect had tied one end of the cord from his shorts to a cell bar and the other end around his neck.

 

Two minutes later, the footage showed Sarawut jumping from the bars, followed by his body shaking briefly prior to his death, police said.

 

Sarawut had been released from the provincial jail nine months ago. 

 

However, on Monday, police arrested two drug suspects, who implicated him, alleging that he had sold them the drugs that officers had found in their possession. 

 

Police then raided his house, where they found meth pills and ‘ice’ and arrested him.

 

A doctor determined that Sarawut had died from a broken neck. 

 

His body was sent to the Chumphon provincial hospital for autopsy.

The illusion of easy baht to be made, so there will be another opportunist ready to step into the void left by this dead trafficker.

I guess they do not do regular physical cell checks

Why was the CCTV not monitored?

Or the authorities just do not have any responsibility towards those in custody?

Did he use a chair or stool to get high enough to hang himself?

it's got nothing to do with society being the fault.

The guy knows right from wrong .... when he first took drugs he knew it was wrong ... but he chose that path so please don't try to blame anyone except him.

yes he took drugs. most probably just bc he has nothing else to do or nothing better to do. of they have never show him good ways, no one to guide him through the right path etc etc.

you have to realize the system we live is never fair or people are never equal or they never receive equal rights or opportunities.

and not all of us are lucky. this guy was not.

especially in thailand.

You really expect a Thai to be awake in the dead of night with nothing happening? Our condo has 2 towers , 4 security at desks at all doors all fast asleep

They could have made up a more convincing story. The job of a hangman is quite complex as the idea is to use the weight and rope length to break the neck. This requires great experience and precision as breaking the neck is not an easy thing and often fails. In this case the prisoner has used a thin cord tied to a 'cell bar' from which he jumped and miraculously managed to get the drop exactly right, the knot exactly right and just the right kind of cord to break his neck. What a stroke of luck....
