Villagers try to lynch top policeman’s son in Phetchabun re-enactment

Re-enactments, where a person, who has admitted their guilt, is taken to the scene of the crime to re-enact it, often in public view, is a common practice in Thai police investigations.

Video footage on the Thai Rath Facebook page shows the moments when a top policeman’s son was taken on one of these re-enactments, this time for a horrific crime that took place in Phetchabun province in central Thailand.

20 year old Watcharaphon Sima, dubbed “Ai For”, was escorted by 100 police to the house where he repeatedly stabbed 56 year old Sanom Kaesorn and her 11 year old grandson Attakowit Monthajan last week.

A crowd of 70 villagers arrived at the scene trying to get to the arrested 20 year old. After the reenactment at the house he was taken to apologise at the coffin of the deceased. The re-enactment was staged the same day as the cremation of the deceased. The 20 year old is the son of a senior policeman according to Thai Rath.

He broke into the house in Nong Khawai in the early hours of July 25 after arriving on a motorcycle that he’d borrowed. He claims that he thought the house was empty at the time. The occupants woke up, he murdered the young boy first with a knife. He then stabbed his grandmother 40 times, all for a mobile phone and a piece of gold jewelry.
