A police informer has been found tied, hooded and riddled with bullets. He was dumped by the side of the road in Surat Thani.
Sawiat district police said that 21 year old Sakon Inthaworn was a hairdresser who had helped police with information about the activities of drugs dealers, reports Daily News.
He was found in undergrowth near a bridge on the Sawiat – Vipawadee road on Thursday. A motorcycle was abandoned nearby.
He had multiple gunshot wounds to his head, shoulder and arm. These had been inflicted with a revolver. His head was tied in a hood. His neck was trussed in nylon and his hands were tied behind his back.
There were no signs of a struggle or other evidence at the scene so police said that he was clearly executed elsewhere. Later on some 3 kilometers away they found the execution site in a shack in a palm plantation.
The victim’s mother said that he had driven off on his motorcycle on Wednesday saying he was going to the dentist. He was not seen again.
Police said that the gruesome nature of the execution style killing was meant as a warning to other informers in the area.
They said that the victim had previously told them he believed that drugs dealers suspected he was an informer.
