A shocking execution-style murder in the early hours of yesterday morning has left the Thai boxing community in mourning. The 56 year old, owner of a boxing camp, known as Sia Dam, was brutally shot in the head and neck by an unidentified gunman, resulting in his immediate death.

 

The incident, which took place around 4am yesterday, April 22, unfolded in the presence of his son at a religious celebration in Buriram province.

 

The tragedy struck just as the celebrations at Nong Teng Temple in Nong Teng subdistrict, were concluding. Sia, a respected figure from Chokna Sam Subdistrict, Prasat District, Surin Province had brought two of his boxers to compete at the event, which also included an honorary ceremony for the abbot.


The assailant, who remains at large, used a grey Hyundai van with a Cambodian license plate as the scene for the cold-blooded killing.


Sia’s son, whose identity has been protected, recounted the harrowing moments that led to his father’s murder. After the boxing matches, they were heading to the van to rest. As his father opened the door and leaned on the seat, a man in a long-sleeved green shirt and a hat suddenly appeared and shot Sia point-blank, right before his eyes. The son, in shock, was left frozen as chaos ensued around them.

 

The victim’s wife, 46 year old Nittaya is devastated by the loss of her husband, who she insists had no known enemies. Sia was a simple businessman, selling bottled water and managing a public restroom in Chong Chom market. The van in which he was killed was loaned to him by a friend as collateral.

 

The Provincial Police Region 3 Chief, Major General Ruthaphon Naowarat revealed that despite no apparent disputes on the night of the murder, no leads will be disregarded, including those related to the boxing circles.

 

A team of police investigators from various units, including the Provincial Police Region 3, Buriram Provincial Police, and Krasang Police Station, are intensively gathering evidence and collaborating with Surin province officers to unravel the case, reported Khaosod.

Maybe some betting on the fight, and someone forgot to throw it.

I thought he owned a boxing camp?

Maybe not such a good fighter, and no students. Have to make up for it by cleaning toilets and selling water. As people can kill for 20 baht, I assume it´s enough if the water is no cold or an unflushed toilet to warrant the murder.

Loaned to him by a 'friend' as collateral ?? was he in the loan shark business? as well as boxing, selling water, and 'managing' a toilet, whatever that may mean. Sounds like he could have several enemies to me.

Sounds like the police have a chance if they find a man with a hat and a long sleeved green shirt diving a grey van with Cambodian plates now suicide has been ruled out ..but 🤔Rip

Police first action to call Chong Chom border crossing and notify them to stop and look for a man wearing along-sleeved green shirt and a hat and also stop all grey Hyundai vans .

The incident, which took place around 4am yesterday, April 22, unfolded in the presence of his son at a religious celebration in Buriram province.

 

So at 4 am they are having a religious ceremony? This makes no sense with the rest of the story.

The ceremony was probably held in the restroom with people woken up early to participate.😋
