Manhunt in Krabi: Murderer out on bail slays stepson’s wife, toddler

Legacy Phuket Gazette



PHUKET: A man out on bail for murder is charged with killing again and is being sought by Krabi Police for slaying his stepson’s wife and toddler.

Police in the Khao Phanom District of Krabi received word just after midnight last night that two people had been shot dead in Phru Tiao subdistrict.

When police and rescue workers arrived at the scene, they found the bodies of Siripan Noorod, 24, and her 19-month-old son Autthakorn Noorod lying near each other on a mattress on the floor.

Ms Siripan had been shot once in the chest and once in the neck, her son shot once in the eye.

“Police collected as evidence three bullet casings, believed to be from a .357 Magnum,” said Khao Phanom Police Investigator Somkid Kerdsang.

“Neighbors told us that Samran Suetrong, 60, had killed the pair,” said Lt Col Somkid.

“Mr Samran is the stepfather of Ms Siripan’s husband. He had quarreled with his wife and she left their house. He thought his wife might be at Ms Siripan’s house, so he went looking for her there.

“When Ms Siripan told him that his wife wasn’t there, he became angry and shot her and her son before running away,” Col Somkid said.

Pursuing the investigation, police found that Mr Samran had been arrested and charged with murder in Surat Thani last year, said Krabi Provincial Police Deputy Commander Boontawee Toraksa.

“He was sentenced to 20 years in prison, but was out on bail as he had appealed the decision,” he said.

“Krabi Provincial Court has issued a warrant for Mr Samran’s arrest and police are searching for him in the Krabi area,” Col Boontawee added.

“We found his pickup truck in front of his house, but that’s it so far,” he added.
