Burmese fisherman murdered | Thaiger

PHUKET TOWN: A Burmese fisherman was found murdered in a rented house near the fishing port early yesterday morning. Pol Lt Kaneuing Pitakkultorn of Phuket Town Police Station told the Gazette that, at around 10 am yesterday, he received a phone call informing him of the murder. In the house on Anuphasphuketkarn Rd in Tambon Rassada, Lt Kaneuing found the victim lying face down. He was wearing blue fisherman’s pants and an unbuttoned white shirt, and had 16 stab wounds in his stomach and chest, possibly inflicted with a sharpened steel reinforcing bar. There was no identification on the body, but neighbors told the police that the man was Burmese, and had worked on a boat operating out of the fishing port on Sri Sena Rd. The neighbors said that the man had last been seen partying with friends in the house the night before. They also told the police that they had heard the sounds of fighting just before dawn. This tallied with initial autopsy results, which indicated the man died around 4 or 5 am. The victim was the sixth person found murdered in the area of the fishing port this year.
