Swede found shot dead in Cha-am home

A 64-year-old Swedish man was found shot dead at his Cha-am home on Monday morning.

The man, whose name was withheld pending notification of relatives, was found lying on his back in the kitchen of the house in tambon Rai Mai Pattana of Cha-am district, Pol Lt Natcharee Siriwarin, an investigator at Cha-am police station, said. 

Pol Lt Natcharee said the Swede, a former police dog handler, was shot in the stomach and right elbow. He had been dead for about 24 hours. The house is part of Kennel Scandinavia - a property providing boarding facilities for dogs, cats and birds, and also has a dog training centre.

Police found a spent cartridge from a shotgun behind the house and a bullet hole in the driver’s door of a Toyota Hilux parked in front of the house. 

Nearby residents said they heard a loud bang at the place about 9am on Sunday and two more shortly after, but did not suspect anything was wrong.

An animal caretaker at Kennel Scandinavia, said he found the Swede’s body on the kitchen floor about 8.30am on Monday and called police.

Pol Col Pakin Siwamethakul, superintendent of Cha-am police station, said the dead man had lived in Cha-am and operated the pet business for several years.

He said it appeared his attackers shot at him when he was using a laptop computer inside the house. He had tried to escape through the kitchen window, but was followed and killed.

Police initially assumed the murder was generated by a personal conflict, because the deceased man had often quarrelled with local youths when he was drunk.

He also had a conflict with his former wife, a Thai, and a court case in which he was accused of killing a cow owned by a local family in a car accident, Pol Col Pakin said.

Neighbour held in slaying of Swede in Cha-am

A Thai neighbour charged with murdering a Swedish man in Cha-am claimed the victim had insulted him and his family many times, police said on Saturday.

A resident of tambon Rai Mai Pattana in Cha-am district, was arrested on a road in his community on murder charges on Saturday. Seized from the suspect was an 11mm pistol. A shotgun and other bullets were later seized from his house. Police also said he tested positive for speed pills.

The Swede, a former police dog handler, was found dead with multiple gunshot wounds at his house on the morning of July 18. The house is part of Kennel Scandinavia -- a boarding facility for dogs, cats and birds with a dog-training centre.

Pol Lt Gen Charnthep Sesawet, chief of Provincial Police Region 7, said investigators found car tyre skid marks on a road near the dog-raising facility of Samrarn Ruengsiri, about 50 metres from the victim’s house.

Charming i must say, Guns n drugs don't mix

He then fired one more shot at the man. As the man fell, the suspect walked up to him and fired another shot in the head before fleeing.
Police also said he tested positive for use of methamphetamine.

Thaiga.  Notice the billboard pictorial and the other little red pictorials placed in the picture, evidence, accused, etc. LOL.   Someone is trying to cover their ass and my guess is that it isn't the suspect.....and what's up with the musket and the terminology, "11mm pistol?"  Why don't they just say what it is?  I'm going to assume they're talking about a .45 or maybe a .44 magnum, but most Thais can't afford either let alone be allowed to buy one because typically, those larger calibers are typically sold to only the police and military.  Even then, you will rarely see those agencies packing those calibers.  For one, ammo in Thailand is fcken expensive (1,700-2,000 baht for a box of 50 bullets in .45acp FMJ. Hollow points cost even more.).  Even the 9mm which is what a lot of the police and military carry, and .38's will run you around 900-1,000 baht for a box of 50.   Whenever I go to the shooting range, I'm almost always the only one there, unless I bring my wife (who is one hell of a shot) or one of my friends. This is because the GD ammo is so expensive.

My guess it that those firearms just might have been obtained illegally.
