A heinous murder has shocked the community after a 36 year old mini-mart owner was brutally killed and his body dumped in remote woodland near Chonlprathan Canal, Bang Luek Subdistrict, Chumphon Province, on the evening of January 7. The 27 year old prime suspect, Jenarong Wongsuwan, also known as Em, was a close friend of the deceased.

The intense manhunt ended on January 10 at 11.15pm when police apprehended Jenarong in Hua Hin, Prachuap Khiri Khan Province. After initial questioning, he was formally arrested for the murder of Jirasak Triyuang at Hua Hin Police Station before being transferred to Chumphon City Police Station.

When questioned by reporters upon arrival, Jenarong confessed that a heated argument led to the violent altercation. He claimed the victim, who he had been living with for a long time, was distancing himself from starting a relationship with another man, which sparked jealousy and resulted in the deadly fight.

Jenarong admitted that the victim fell, hit his head, became unconscious, and later died. He expressed remorse for the incident but refrained from giving further details, reported KhaoSod.
