During the course of yesterday afternoon, forensic officers collected ballistics information and also carried out a further forensic examination of the tuk-tuk Mr Sakol was driving at the time of the shooting.

Mr Sakol was shot dead in Kathu on the morning of Oct 25 in what police believe is a personal dispute. (See story here.)

Police have already arrested two suspects for their part in the public slaying of Mr Sakol.

Wattana “Dam” Nawakeaw, 38, was taken into custody after a warrant for his arrest was issued last Friday (Oct 28).

The second suspect, a 17-year-old who police named only as “Thong”, was arrested at a rental room on Sakdidet Rd also on Friday. (See story here.)

However, speaking to The Phuket News yesterday, Kathu Police Deputy Chief Investigator Lt Col Amponwat Seangreung said, “We now have a third suspect who is being detained at Kathu Police Station, but I cannot give any details about this person.

“We have also managed to locate another two suspects who fled the island following the shooting. They have both been arrested and will be sent back to Phuket to face their charges here,” Col Amponwat said.

“There are two more suspects being hunted, but we know they also fled the island after the incident,” he added.

Meanwhile, a forensic officer who attended Kathu Police Station on Tuesday said, “We did manage to find another bullet in Mr Sakol’s vehicle during out inspection today. The bullet was found lodged in to foot well in front of the passenger seat of the vehicle.

“We will add this additional evidence to the evidence that has already been collected,” he said.
