  1. July 17, a fire broke out at a cafe located on the hilltop of Koh Kwag in Ban Koh Kwag, Village No. 3, Nong Thale Subdistrict, Mueang District. The blaze caused extensive damage, with the central part of the café and the kitchen on the lower floor being completely destroyed. The fire is suspected to have been caused by an electrical short circuit due to strong winds and heavy rain in the area. It is believed that a broken branch from the storm hit the power lines, causing sparks that ignited the fire. The café, being constructed mostly of wood, provided ample fuel for the fire. The estimated damage is over 15 million baht. Mr. Sorasak (last name withheld), a 20-year-old employee, was sleeping in the café with a friend when he woke up to find smoke and flames. They managed to escape without injury. He recounted waking up to use the bathroom and discovering the smoke and fire. The village head, reported that around 03.00, he was informed by locals about a fire on the hilltop, suspected to be at the café. He alerted the relevant authorities, who then worked to control the blaze. The café is well-known in the area and contributes to local employment and economy. Mr. Prompriang (last name withheld), the 60-year-old owner of the café, stated that the initial estimate of the damage is over 15 million baht. He plans to discuss with his family the next steps for the business. If they decide to continue, they will prioritise safety measures. He expressed a desire to reopen and serve their customers again in the future. https://workpointnews.com/search/NMPAI25

  5. So please show me where my information is wrong? My quotes were taken from the research I quoted. I will provide you the links to the relevant research, so you can do you own fact checks. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9322444/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7532833/ https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2468170923000759 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3834424/ Your arrogance is a poor disguise for your ignorance.

  7. At 16:06 on July 17, Police Lieutenant Colonel Tanongsak Inphadung, an investigator with the Pattaya City Police Station, received a report of a fatal fall from a height at a building in Soi Buakhao, South Pattaya. Upon receiving the report, police coordinated with Pattaya City Tourist Police, Sawang Boriboon Thammasathan Rescue Unit, and Pattaya City Fire Department to investigate. The incident occurred at a six-story residence, where a crowd of tourists had gathered. On the second-floor awning, they found the lifeless body of a 70-year-old Dutch national. He was lying motionless, severely injured, and bleeding profusely. Rescue personnel faced difficulties due to the awning's metal structure bending under the weight, necessitating the use of a cherry picker to safely retrieve the body. No signs of physical assault were found on the body. According to building’s staff, the deceased had checked in on July 11, and before the incident, he had inquired about extending his stay but had not yet decided. Shortly after taking the elevator, a loud crash was heard as his body struck the second-floor awning. Upon investigation, they found him unresponsive and immediately contacted authorities. Preliminary investigations by Lt. Col. Tanongsak Inphadung and the Pattaya City Tourist Police revealed CCTV footage showing the final moments of the foreigner wandering on the rooftop before falling to his death on the second-floor awning. The body was transported to Bang Lamung Hospital by rescue officials and will be sent to the Police General Hospital’s forensic institute for an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death. https://workpointnews.com/around/news/N2KDKTF Pictures from Thai media.
  8. Thai media report. “At the Office of Police Forensic Science, Police Lieutenant General Trirong Phiwphan, the Commander of the Forensic Science Division, attended a briefing on the evidence found at the crime scene at a renowned hotel in the Ratchaprasong area, following the deaths of six foreigners. The evidence, collected last night (July 16), included five glasses found on a tea table and one glass on a dining table, all of which tested positive for cyanide. Additionally, three metal teapots were examined. Two showed no traces of cyanide, while one was found to contain the poison. A tea bag containing cyanide was also discovered, with another cyanide-laced tea bag found in a trash bin, distinguished by its dark color. Other items tested did not reveal any traces of cyanide. "Cyanide, when mixed with water, is tasteless and odorless, making it undetectable to those who consume it. Once ingested, it prevents the blood from exchanging oxygen, taking effect in less than five minutes depending on the amount. The victim's skin turns pink, and their breath emits an almond odor," said the Commander of the Forensic Science Division.” Video of the Commander at the Forensic Science Department, with some of the evidence.

  9. The issue maybe the time between death and the autopsy. Research by Sam Houston State University, U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense; and South Dakota State University shows that. “Unless cyanide is discovered at the time of death on the mouth or nose, elevated cyanide concentrations can only be found for up to a maximum of two days under toxicological blood testing. The problem at autopsy is that due to the relatively short half-life of cyanide, toxicological detection of cyanide to confirm cyanide poisoning may only be feasible within the first few hours following exposure. Cyanide levels in blood samples taken at autopsy the next day have been reported to decrease by approximately 79 percent.” Other more advanced testing techniques are available, such as from liver and blood samples using Headspace-Ion Mobility Spectrometry, but do the RTP have access to such equipment, or maybe the FBI were able to help. Other evidence of the effects of cyanide on the body will be evident at autopsy, as cyanide basically prevents cells from using oxygen to make energy molecules, as It acts as an irreversible enzyme inhibitor,. Tissues that require this form of energy molecules, such as heart muscle cells and nerve cells, quickly expend all their energy and start to die. When a large enough number of critical cells die, you die, and the evidence of this damage remains.
  10. Possible theory, but will the autopsy to be able to confirm if this was cyanide poisoning. Testing of the reported found, suspect substance maybe the best option. Cyanide - “After oral intake, the inhibition of psychophysical abilities occurs within a few seconds to 1 or 2 min. In some cases, a latency interval of 5–10 min or longer has been reported. Soon after loss of consciousness, convulsions, hypotension, apnea, shock, and, eventually, death from cellular asphyxia have been observed.” - Dorooshi G, Dorostkar A, Rahimi A, Zoofaghari S. An unusual acute cyanide intoxication. Adv Biomed Res.2020;9:42. Research by Sam Houston State University, U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense; and South Dakota State University shows that. “Unless cyanide is discovered at the time of death on the mouth or nose, elevated cyanide concentrations can only be found for up to two days under toxicological testing. Problem at autopsy is that due to the relatively short half-life of cyanide, toxicological detection of cyanide to confirm cyanide poisoning may only be feasible within the first few hours following exposure. Cyanide levels in blood samples taken at autopsy the next day have been reported to decrease by approximately 79 percent.” Newer research and testing techniques are available, such as from liver and blood samples using Headspace-Ion Mobility Spectrometry, but do the RTP have access to such equipment, or maybe the FBI will be able to help, as they are now involved in the investigation.
  11. Yes in 2017, a Saab JAS 39C Gripen impacted airport terrain after a loss of control in flight during an air display for the Children's Day Airshow at the Hat Yai International Airport, the pilot Group was killed. https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand/general/1180041/gripen-jet-crashes-during-air-show-pilot-killed
