A drunk Burmese man stabbed his 29-year-old Thai “friend” to death at a drinking party and fled early this morning.
Pol. Lt. Col. Manod Thipwet was notified of a murder at a worker’s camp in Banglamung, Chonburi, and rushed to the scene with Sawang Boriboon rescuers early today, November 20th.
The victim, Mr. Natthaphong Namkot, a 29-year-old Thai national, was found deceased with a knife stuck in his right chest. Pol. Lt. Col. Manod questioned an eyewitness Mr. Jetsada Thepchai, 24, about the incident and was told the victim was stabbed by his Burmese friend only identified as “M.”
Jetsada said Natthaphong, him, and M were drinking white liquor, known locally as Lao Khao, when Natthapong and M suddenly began to quarrel. The two friends then challenged each other to a fight before M reportedly stabbed Natthaphong in the chest with a knife and escaped.
The nature of the argument was not made clear.
Pol. Lt. Col. Manod was examining CCTV footage to track down the suspect.
