On the day of the discovery, after finishing his shift at 8am, Krisada returned to his room to rest. Concern grew when he did not respond to messages, prompting Nattaphum to check Krisada’s residence. Finding the house locked and the air conditioning off, Nattaphum entered through a window and upon breaking into the locked bedroom, he found Krisada in a pool of blood.

The Deputy Chief of Ayutthaya Police, Thirawut Sangmani, was promptly informed of the death. He disclosed that the investigation was underway, focusing on Krisada’s relationship with his girlfriend, who lived in a different province.

Communication between them on the morning of the incident indicated a sombre farewell from Krisada, after which there was no activity from him, despite his girlfriend’s attempts to reach out between 7am and 9am, reported KhaoSod.

The absence of any signs of struggle or forced entry into Krisada’s room led to a detailed collection of evidence, and his body was sent for an autopsy at the Forensic Science Institute in Pathum Thani.
