Satit said a search of the suspects’ residences turned up a knife that was reportedly used in the attack; previous police reports indicated that Mr. Volker was stabbed by shards of glass from a broken beer bottle.

“They fled the crime scene without knowing that the victim was dead,” Pol.Col. Satit said.

The three suspects have been charged with premeditated murder.
