Two murdered in stabbing attacks

PHUKET TOWN: Two men, both the victims of stabbing attacks, were found murdered at separate locations on Friday. Officers answering a call about 7 am found a body, dressed in jeans and a black T-shirt, beside Si Sena Rd, near the Rassada port. Pol Capt Kaneuing Pitakkultorn of Phuket Town Police Station said a work permit card in the name of Mor, age 26, had been found in a pocket of one of the victims, a Burmese fishing boat crewman. Mor had been stabbed in the chest and back about 28 times and was estimated to have been dead at least seven hours. Villagers living nearby, as well as fishing crews, said they did not know the man. Officers presume he was stabbed during a quarrel. Six hours later, the naked body of another man was found in water at the end of Saphan Hin Cape. Pol Maj Chockchai Suttimeke of Phuket Town Police Station said there were three stab wounds in the victim’s chest, seven in the stomach and 11 in the back. Police estimated that he had been dead for three days or more. Police are hoping to be able to identify the man, but say that so far they have no clues.
