Police commissioner Sanit Mahathavorn is taking a personal interesting in the investigation into the death of the honours student who died at Bangkok’s iconic Golden Mount temple on Sunday last week.
CCTV evidence shows that the victim – 28 year old Narawut Phuangkasen – was walking all about the temple in the early hours of the morning, reported Daily News.
He was seen waving his hands in the manner of a flapping bird at one point though the significance of this is yet to be explained.
A nun heard a scream made by a man at 5.30am followed by the sound of a temple bell. She was scared so did not go to investigate but called in police who found the body face up.
Blood was found around the bell and all around the corpse that was on level three of the walkway up the downtown Bangkok monument.
Sanit went to the scene of the suspected murder yesterday after an hour long meeting with Samranrat station police to discuss developments in the case that is captivating the Thai public.
Sanit said that no conclusions could yet be drawn in the case that is complex. The background of the victim is being closely examined including his online and social media activity.
Witness statements and evidence is still being gathered though it was revealed that among the groups of people being interviewed were nuns, monks, cleaners and Burmese people.
The victim had a fractured skull and a 5 centimeter gash to the forehead.
The parents are still in a state of shock though they are expected to give evidence tomorrow as soon as their son’s funeral arrangements are completed.
The victim graduated only two months ago from Bangkok University.
