Arrested on a warrant for murder on Sunday was Wachira “Chorn” Kunchorn, a friend of the victim. He had fled to relatives in Chainat. Bloodstained clothing allegedly discarded by Chorn was found outside a factory in Bang Plee.

Chorn claims self defence. He said that the victim had caused trouble at an alcohol shop on one occasion when a knife was drawn. He said that this situation ended with no one hurt. 

Later he met Theerayut who was riding a motorcycle on the road by the expressway and asked him what the problem was. He claimed that the victim came at him again with a knife and as he attempted to disarm him he was fatally stabbed in the neck. 

Police have dismissed this story and are pressing charges of murder. 

Chorn has been detained.
