Man executed in Thalang forest | Thaiger

THEPKRASATTRI: Thalang Police are investigating the murder of a man found dead from a single gunshot wound to the back of the head in a remote part of Bang Khanoon Forest in Village 5 on Wednesday afternoon.

Thalang Police Duty Inspector Anukul Nuket identified the victim as Lor Ramphang, a 45-year-old resident of Thepkrasattri Village 1.

Local residents discovered the victim’s shirtless body lying face down on a path in a plantation area. There were no signs that a struggle had taken place.

Mr Lor’s body was taken to Thalang Hospital by Kusoldharm Foundation workers for further examination.

The caliber of the bullet has not yet been reported.

Maj Anukul declined to give an estimate of the time of the shooting, nor would he confirm the details of a report in a Thai-language newspaper that quoted the victim’s son as saying he’d heard from villagers that two other men who went out to the plantation on Tuesday had been arrested by government officers on charges of encroachment on public land.

No government officers were under suspicion in the case, which might have been related to a land dispute in the village, said Maj Anukul.
