Police in Kalasin have arrested a 16 year old boy who they say hired three teenage friends to murder his 60 year old father.
But the attack made to look like a theft went wrong. The father was slashed about the head and body with a sharp object but was not killed. He lived and ended up in ICU needing 100 stitches to various wounds, reported Sanook.
Police originally thought that the attack on Friday night was made during the course of a theft of fighting cocks that a man named only as Sompong, 60, raised at his house on the Hua Khu Bypass in the north eastern Thai town.
But they soon discovered this was not the case and arrested the man’s 16 year old son who was named only as “A”.
He admitted that he had hired three friends for 20,000 baht to kill his father. They were supposed to make it look like a theft and cause the chickens to make a lot of noise and wake his father. This happened and his father came out to investigate but the murderous attack was bungled leaving Sompong grievously wounded but still alive.
The son said that he had argued constantly with his father. He claimed that he had been assaulted and abused all his life.
Kalasin police have discovered that the assailants for hire are aged 16 and 17 but no further arrests have yet been made.
Police will be interviewing the son in conjunction with child protection authorities to get to the bottom of why he paid for his father to be killed. This will determine what charges will be laid against him.Facebook.
