Man wanted for murder in Japan ten years ago turns out to be local government official in Chiang Rai

A man wanted for the robbery/murder of a Thai man and woman in Japan has been located in Thailand after hiding out for ten years.

The Crime Suppression Division said that Bunrit Janthaphoon, 57, had changed his name and was currently acting as the “kamnan” (tambon chief) in Ban Dai sub-district of Mae Sai.

He had been elected to that position.

He jumped bail in Japan where he was set to stand trial for the murder of Prayuth Ngandee and Ratree Duankhreua who were killed by the shore of a lake and robbed of 1,500,000 yen.

Others were also involved in the killing.

Bunrit said without explanation that he had no intention of fleeing and it would all come out in court.

Sanook reported that he had been protected by influential political allies during his time hiding in Chiang Rai province.
