Young man executed at Layan

THALANG: A young angler was found shot in the back of the head on a bridge at Layan Beach on December 28.

Pol Lt Col Jessada Sangsuree, Investigating Inspector at Cherng Talay Police Station, told the Gazette that Suthin Srisamut, 40, about 10:30 pm that night reported that the body of his son, Worayuth Srisamut, 25, had been discovered on the bridge.

He said that Worayuth was found dead with his fishing rod and two empty cans of Leo beer next to him. He had been shot in the back of the skull with a .38-caliber gun.

The body was sent to Thalang Hospital.

Col Jessada said that Worayuth’s wife had told police that Worayuth had been worried about something, but had not confided in her before taking his fishing rod to the bridge, Col Jessada said.

Police believe that gang involvement or mistaken identity were likely factors in the murder.
