Double homicide claims 20-year-old girls | Thaiger

KOH KAEW: Phuket City Police are searching for a man who shot and killed two young women on a motorbike early on Friday.

At about 2 am on November 28, Phuket City Police were notified that two women had been found murdered at the mouth of the access road to Laem Hin in Koh Kaew Village 7, Muang District.

Police officers, including Phuket Provincial Police Commander Apirak Hongtong, rushed to the scene with Kusoldharm Foundation workers.

At the scene they found the body of one young lady lying in the middle of the road with a Phuket registered motorcycle on top of her. Nearby, the body of another young woman was found in a roadside drainage ditch. Both had been killed instantly from gunshot wounds to the head, fired from a 9mm weapon.

The first victim was identified as 20-year-old Praphasri Limpanon, a resident of Tambon Srisoonthorn Village 5. The other victim was later identified as Khansina Sanhaad, a 20-year-old resident of Pa Khlok.

A third woman who survived the attack said all three women were riding on a single motorbike on Thepkrasattri Rd southbound when a man on another motorbike began chasing them. They turned onto the road to Laem Hin in an attempt to escape, but the man overtook them and cut them off, forcing them to stop.

Once they had, he pulled out a pistol and shot Miss Praphasri, then Miss Khansina. The third woman, whose name was not reported, ran for her life and managed to escape as her assailant got back on his motorbike and sped off.

Police say they know the identity of the killer and are searching for him now.

One Thai language newspaper gave the name of the attacker, as identified by the woman who survived. She was quoted as saying he was a 37-year-old jilted former lover of Miss Praphasri.

The two homicides raise to ten the number of shooting murders in Phuket over the past three months.
