The second suspect who acted as a lookout for the rapist murderer of the 13-year-old girl on train retracted his confession claiming he was threatened by the police to confess.

murderer ThailandMetropolitan police deputy commissioner Pol Maj Gen Thitirach Nonghanpitak who is in charge of the rape and murder case of the 13-year-old girl, said the second suspect Natakorn Chamnan, 19, alias Nueng, has retracted his confession of acting as a lookout for the rapist murderer Wanchai Sangkhao.

He claimed he was threatened with bodily harm by the police if he refused to confess to the crime, the officer said.

The officer said retraction of his confession was what the police have anticipated as it was the legal right of the suspect to defend himself in the prosecution process.

But he said the police have substantial evidence to prove his conspiracy part in the case to the prosecutors and the crime committed by the rapist murderer Wanchai.

The police submitted details of the murder case to the prosecution to prosecute the two suspects today.

Natakorn retracted his confession during the prosecution inquiry.
