PATTAYA: -- A former Pattaya cop is in custody after the murder of an ex-colleague found headless in a local reservoir.

 

Four men have been charged with murder over something that began with an unpaid debt of just 3,000 baht.

 

The body of volunteer cop Jirayu Srithanu, 23, was found by a member of the public in the deserted area on Friday afternoon. The corpse was headless but was identified due to the victim's Thai ID being in his pocket.

 

An urgent police investigation by Nong Preu cops resulted in the arrest of four men yesterday.

 

They are former volunteer cop Somkiat Jankrajang, 36, the leader of the gang, and three associates.

 

One was a friend of the victim called Weerawong "Ton" Kliangsamphao, aged 20. Also arrested was Theera Thatsa, 18.

 

The other is a juvenile aged 17 given the assumed name of "Petch".

 

Officer Rapanat Chayanphat of the Nong Preu police said that the investigation centered on the mother of the victim and posts that had been made on Facebook.

 

This soon let to the gang who have admitted their involvement and been charged with premeditated murder. The three adults have been ordered held while the fourth is being detained by the juvenile court.

 

Rapanat said that the problem started several months ago when the victim did not repay a 3,000 baht debt to Somkiat.

 

Both Somkiat and Jirayu were volunteer cops on the same detail.

 

On June 30th Weerawong lured his friend on a motorcycle to a depot in Soi Chaiyapreuk, Jomtien where Somkiat worked as a security guard and all the men were drinking. An argument soon developed in which Jirayu was attacked with a bottle.

 

He was later transported by pick-up and dumped in the isolated spot before Weerawong attacked him with a "Sparta" chef's knife and kicked the body into the reservoir.

Life is definitely cheap when you can get murdered for such a pathetic amount of money. Five young lives all ruined for peanuts. Thailand never ceases to amaze me.

The more crime I read about in Pattaya the less interest I have in returning.
