The victim had lived in Thailand quite some time which he said added to the need for a speedy resolution to the case.

So far no motive has been discovered and despite the fact that those close to the victim had been interviewed there was no arrest.

Witnesses further afield in the area are still to be fully interviewed but this is expected to be concluded in a couple of days.

Meanwhile in other news from the police bureau word has come down from the top to regional commanders nationwide to ensure the safety of millions of people returning home after the long five day break.

Krissana said that over the last five days one million vehicles had ben stopped and checked resulting in 100,000 offences. Though he said that most of these were for helmet and seatbelt infractions.

He asked the public to understand that it was for their own good that such checks were being made.

The commissioner of police has also called for police in all areas to be strict about speeding especially for public vehicles like minivans who may go to fast in order to add extra trips to their schedules.

Police were also ordered to be on the lookout for drugs as gangs may use the heavy flow of traffic as cover for their distribution activities.
