Arrest warrant issued for Farang Restaurant killing

PHUKET CITY: Police have issued an arrest warrant for a man suspected of carrying out the murder of the owner of the popular Farang restaurant chain.

Phuket City Police Superintendent Wanchai Ekpornpit gave the name of the wanted man as Prapan Inkong, 27. He declined to release the man’s address or other information for fear of jeopardizing the investigation.

Police believe that Mr Prapan Inkong was hired to kill Chit “Tik” Raknanga by a third party.

Col Wanchai told the Gazette that romantic jealously resulting from a love triangle was the apparent motive for the killing.
