Police in Bangkok have launched a murder investigation after the body of a Thai boxer was found covered in blood in the city’s On Nut area. His throat was slit. Photos of the crime scene show blood splattered and smeared across the hood of a white Toyota Vios.

Around 10pm Sunday night, local residents heard screams and called police. The body of the 46 year old boxer, known as Wichan Noi Jep Yao, was found covered in blood. He had no shirt or shoes. Reports say a pair of underwear was found near the body. Dried bloodstains were all around the car and in the back seat. No weapons were found at the scene.

Wichan was a boxing instructor at the Rama 2 camp, according to the Thai media outlet Sanook. Reports say the boxer travelled from Suphan Buri to Bangkok for business. Police are still investigating.

      In general, it’s quite a nice neighborhood, but not w/o problems. You may recall there was a fatal brawl between rival motorcycle taxi drivers there not too long ago.

        Yes I remember that that incident. I believe it happens often due to the rivalry or territories who owns or compete for customers. It happens slot near Bang Na area

      Since On Nut became an internet popularized farang dumping ground few years ago the area has gone down hill. A lot of bald fat sleazy garbage landed in On Nut around 50 after Pattaya and Phuket went into lockdown and have made things even worse. Anyone who does come back and finds a cool place to stay…..don’t brag about it on your countries chat sites. There’s no better recipient for disaster than to suicide your building on Facebook. .
