A 38 year old Thai man has been arrested and charged over the alleged shooting death of a 9 year old boy and then burying his body in a forest area in Prachuap Khiri Khan’s Hua Hin district.

Third grader Chalermchai Jopratha from Ban Phraek Takhro was reported missing on March 10. He was found yesterday morning in a shallow grave covered with a large rock.

Local man Pramook Khosin was arrested and a hunting rifle and eight bullets seized, according to Nong Pluc superintendent Pol Colonel Chaikorn Sriladecho.

“He has been charged with murder, concealing a body and illegal possession of a hunting rifle and ammunition.”

Pramook told police that he was hunting in the hill area when he shot at the boy who he mistook as a hornbill. He says that when he realised he had shot and killed the boy he dug a shallow grave to hide the body and conceal the crime before returning to work at an ice-selling shop in Pran Buri district.

Chalermchai, one of five children, was a child Muay Thai fighter who joined boxing matches at local events to earn 500 to 1,000 baht prize money to help his poor family.

Police have seized 76 live pangolins with an estimated street value overseas around 10 million baht from a smuggler in Prachuap Khiri Khan.

45 year old Sompol Mekchai from Ratchaburi was stopped in Sam Roi Yot district early this morning after police suspected he was trying to evade their checkpoint on the Phetchkasem Highway.

Seeing his pickup suddenly swerve onto a canal-side road 300 metres from the blockade, officers chased him, pulled him over and searched the pickup.

The pangolins were bundled up in 18 mesh bags stashed in the cargo bed beneath planks of wood and other construction materials.

Police claim Sompol confessed to having smuggled live pangolins three times before. He says he was paid 8,000 baht each time. But, as usual, he was unable identify his employer, having received his orders by phone.

He told police that pickups, already carrying the animals, were always left at a designated location for him to use. This time he collected the truck in Muang Prachuap Khiri Khan and was heading for Pathum Thani,.

Sompol has been charged with possessing protected wild animals without a permit.
