Upon arrival, officers and rescuers discovered the bodies of the two victims, one 14 and the other 15, who had suffered five stab wounds each and fatal head injuries inflicted by a 3-kilogramme rock.

At the scene, officers found a bloodstained rock and a 6-inch knife, which were collected as evidence. The incident allegedly stemmed from prior disputes on social media and a disagreement over damage to the suspects’ motorbike. The victims’ guardians had agreed to pay 2,000 baht in compensation for the damage, but a chance encounter led to the deadly confrontation.

Police have identified all seven juvenile suspects, aged between 14 and 16, whose names have been withheld due to their age. They were taken to Bang Na Police Station for further legal proceedings on charges of murder and other related crimes, reported Pattaya News.
