A hired gunman has told police in Phang Nga province in southern Thailand that he was paid just 2,500 baht to commit murder. 

 

The money came from a person who was owed money by the victim and who claimed that they were stabbed after going to try and get it back.

 

Leuang, 38, a crab forager from Buriram, was found in a ditch in a palm oil plantation in the Takuathung police jurisdiction on Saturday.

 

She had been shot in the head.

 

Police soon arrested Phakorn, 26, the hired killer at a house in Muang district and took a shotgun and ammunition into evidence. 

 

After the suspect was questioned a warrant for the arrest of the person who hired him was sought. 

 

Phakorn - charged with murder and weapons' offences - admitted everything, said provincial police chief Pol Maj-Gen Tharatcha Thomphat yesterday.

 

The killer said that he went to the palm plantation on August 3rd and had a short chat with the intended victim. 

 

He then shot her in the head and fled the scene. He said he didn't know how much the murdered woman had owed but the person who hired him had said when they went to get it back Leuang had stabbed them. 

 

Maj-Gen Tharatcha confirmed the details saying it was a case of revenge and in the public interest in the area.

 

A warrant for the person who hired Phakorn had been applied for.

I had been quoted 30,000 baht a few years back by a local cop which I thought was reasonable, e.g. if you need to get rid of someone, you call me, not that I ever would Tiruk.

I wonder how much, to get rid of barking/biting dogs?

             How do you find  a gunman ? Yellow Pages ? 

     Was that his first ?    Looks like his last.
