The grave – a kind of cement tomb – had been broken into and a part of his skull had been removed. It happened at the temple of Wat Pa Songsermtham.  It is thought to be the work of a necromancer who would turn the skull parts into amulets and fetishes.  A bag that relatives had put in the grave that the robber left at the scene is being examined for DNA. 

The theft occurred back on May 12th and the governor Maj-gen Woranat Phanphon has called for the police to step up their hunt for the person or persons responsible.  “Nong Kao” was a six year old boy who died from drowning. Relatives wanted to delay his cremation according to their beliefs and put his body in the tomb.  

They were waiting until his mother got out of prison before proceeding with the funeral.  The part of the skull stolen is known as the cranial girdle.
