Region 7 RTP chief Pol Lt-Gen Thanayut Wuthijarasthamrong updated the press on the murder of a British man and attempted murder of a compatriot at a briefing at the Muang Kanchanaburi police station yesterday afternoon.

 

In custody after his arrest on a warrant is Prasoot Thipthep, aged 22.

 

Taken into evidence was a sickle and the shoes and clothes worn by the alleged assailant.

 

He is under stress and his father was present as investigators tried to get to the truth, reported Thai Rath. He was reluctant to speak.

 

The incident happened at 4 am outside some rented rooms in Soi Sri Lanka in Tha Makham sub-district.

 

Murdered was Marcus John, 50, and Seriously injured and now in hospital was Shaun Kevin.

 

These are clearly first and middle names, notes ASEAN NOW. Other information circulating online and unconfirmed suggested the decease had the surname Evans and is 49. 

 

Lt-Gen Thanayut said that the assailant had come out of a nearby house and fled to a relative's house after the attack.

 

A mental health evaluation of the suspect is underway.

 

Thanayut promised justice for both sides.

 

Tourism officials have visited the injured man in hospital.

The BBC are reporting that the Royal Thai Police have confirmed the the deceased guy is Marcus Evans, 49, who was originally from Weston-super-Mare and has been in Thailand for five years, and the injured guy is Shaun Dagnan, 54, who has been in Thailand for three years and is from Nuneaton.

"And know that there is Mr. SHAUN KEVIN, 54 years old, British nationality. Was armed with a knife, wounded teeth, taken to Phahon Phon Legion ... ".

 

I'm guessing this refers to the assailant's knife, but it doesn't read that way.

I'd bet my bottom dollar the immigration status of the Brits has been checked (black clad assasination squad looks familiar from other immigration raid press conferences.) If any discrepencies, you can safely say that the outcome will be......"If they hadn't had come to Thailand this wouldn't have happened."

and people wonder why visas are getting hard to get

How can a sickle be described as a knife?

One thing is a bit unusual in this incident.

 

There were two Brits , sitting together and presumably talking to each other. 

 

If they were talking to each other for several hours the music might not have been that loud since who in their right minds wants to shout above music to be heard for several hours ?? Sore throats much.

maybe not loud to a normal person but loud to a person with disabilities

 

 

Also let me share this too .. 

 

Education For Children with Disabilities

Legally, all disabled persons are entitled to 12 years of free, basic education. However, the vast majority of schools in Thailand do not cater for disabled children. As a result, a child with a disability attends a special school which caters only to children with similar disabilities. Not many schools cater to disabled children so it is not always easy for children with disabilities to get an education.

Except perhaps in extreme cases, the concept of "mental health" is somewhat nebulous and subjective.

 

Hope the mental health issue doesn't allow this 22 year-old to walk (and re-offend) after a token stint in jail.

It's called "Care in the Community" in the UK.

I count 14 photo-cops proudly claiming credit for the arrest of a mentally disturbed man.

There's no indication in the report that even one of those pictured was "claiming credit for the arrest".

Folk will soon learn there is no real justice in Thailand. .... Ever 

Maybe it is because we all look the same to them? Compared to the rest of the world Thailand is low on homicides and low on crime. Whether this is from the police force or the good nature of the Thai people your guess is as good as mine
