Police vow quick action on stabbing death

PHUKET: Metropolitan Police have vowed to quickly solve the stabbing to death of a homeless man whose body was found stuffed in a sack near an anti-government rally site earlier this week.

Pol Maj-General Thitirat Nonghanpitak, deputy Bangkok police chief, chaired a meeting of police investigators on the case that was told that the man with six stab wounds in the torso and bruised face was Ubon Ratchathani native Kringkrai Prappol, 49, a vagrant who stayed in the area around Phan Fa Lilat Bridge.

He was estimated to have been dead for three days.

After mulling over possible motives such as a personal conflict and checking surveillance-camera footage in the area for clues, police did not rule yet that the homicide was related to politics, even though the body emerged near where the People’s Army to Overthrow the Thaksin Regime had camped out.

Thitirat affirmed police would probe this case thoroughly.
