Family members of the deceased arrived at the home upon hearing the news. They were visibly upset with Saneh, causing the police to quickly take him to the Lan Sak Police Station for his safety.

Saneh confessed that he had used a locally-made .38 calibre gun to shoot Krisana. He further explained that he was Krisana’s stepfather and had been living with Krisana’s mother for many years, raising Krisana since he was a child.

“Before this incident, Krisana and I never had a serious altercation. However, our relationship had been strained recently. I endured his insults and derogatory comments. Today, we were both at home alone because Krisana’s mother had taken the grandchildren to visit relatives. We sat down to drink together, and as we became intoxicated, a heated argument ensued. In a fit of rage, I shot him.”
