Security guard, 26, murdered in Kamala | Thaiger

KAMALA: Police are investigating the murder of a security guard found beaten and shot to death outside a room at an apartment building in Kamala on Saturday afternoon.

Duty Officer Pol Lt Chaiyapong Thamasurin of the Kamala Police identified the victim as 26-year-old Jirasak Khundamri, who was employed as a security guard by a private firm in Cherng Talay.

He was found outside apartment A1 at an unnamed apartment block on Soi OrBorTor in Bangwan village, tambon Kamala.

The victim died from a single 38-caliber bullet to the left side of his lower ribcage, Lt Chaiyapong said.

Several of the victim’s teeth were found on the ground near the body, which together with other injuries indicated he had been badly beaten before he was shot.

Although the murder weapon was not found, police collected at the scene the .38 caliber bullet which passed through the victim’s body and exited through his back, he said.

Police have already questioned several witnesses in the case, including the owner of the apartment block, 61-year-old Kosol Korkaew, and his daughter Supak, 36.

Lt Chaiyapong declined to say if they had any suspects in the case, though he said a relationship between the victim and K. Supak was thought be a factor in the motive for the killing.

The victim’s family, who are Muslims, were required by their faith to bury their son as soon as possible and thus have not yet been questioned, said Lt Chaiyapong.
