The national deputy police chief, Pol Gen Chalermkiat Srivorakhan, visited the crime scene in Chaiyaphum’s Bamnet Narong (บำเหน็จณรงค์) district where the body of a Korean national was found in bushes by a rural roadside.
The victim, identified as 23-year-old Lee Jae-hun, was believed to be dead 12 hours before his body was found in bushes of a roadside in Ban Krathum Phra, tambon Ban Tarn. Mr Lee, said the police, arrived in Thailand on December 11 and he was due to return to South Korea on December 14.
The motive of the victim’s murder remains unknown but police checked CCTV footage along the route where the victim boarded a taxi from Suvarnabhumi international airport until he arrived at Khao San Road.
Police also contacted the South Korean embassy in Bangkok for the victim’s background which might be helpful in determining the motive of the murder.
