Children among 8 dead in Krabi execution-style shooting

Post by buksida » Tue Jul 11, 2017 4:27 pm

THREE children were among eight family members shot dead early Tuesday in what appeared to be an execution-style killing by several gunmen in Thailand’s Krabi province.

Police said three others, including two girls, suffered serious injuries after the group of about six men stormed the house of a village headman over a “personal dispute”.

According to Bangkok Post, the armed men dressed in camouflage gear arrived at the house of Vorayuth Sangklang, a village head in Ban Klang, in two vehicles at around 4pm on Monday.

Masquerading as government officials wanting to conduct an operation, they then demanded entry to the house to search the property, also warning its occupants not to leave the vicinity.

At the time, however, the village head was not home. The gunmen reportedly waited until he arrived at 8pm. According to witnesses, he was handcuffed.

Pol Capt Suwit Kawpreecha, an investigator in the case, said the family members were killed at around midnight, most of them shot in the head.

Neighbours reported hearing the gunshots shortly after 12am. The killers then made off with Vorayuth’s Toyota car.

Police said they were alerted to the massacre at about 1.30am, The Nation reported, after which they found five people dead at the home while another three, including Vorayuth, showed signs of life before they were rushed to the hospital, where they died. ... Prh9Qgj.97

Yeah, this is a bad one. Bunch of cowards killing children too.

Always amazes me how brazen the perps are in these crimes and the impunity that they think they have to do as they see fit. The dark forces here know no bounds.

Can't trust anyone anymore. Fake news, fake cops, fake soldiers, fake goods, fake politics, fake businesses, fake everything these days and there seems to be no shame...just a free-for-all and greed fest for money, vanity/face, revenge and power.
