Phuket TV Murder: 'Other Woman' Under Arrest, Hunt for Fourth Man

Tuesday, June 12, 2012
PHUKET: Police have arrested a woman over the shooting murder of Supattra Namfach as she watched television in her home at Kathu in central Phuket on Saturday.

The woman was arrested in Thalang by one group of officers as a second group were on their way to Koh Yao, off Phuket's east coast, to arrest a man.

Police believe the woman ordered the killing and the man found the shooter who carried out the murder.

Three men have already been arrested. Sawit Jongrak, 28, allegedly fired at Khun Supattra, hitting her in the head. Aroon Patan, 28, and Sanawg Punerng, 26, are accused of being accomplices.

The three men were in a pickup stopped by police at Tachatchai checkpoint, on the main road leading off Phuket, minutes after the shooting. Khun Supattra, 55, died soon after in hospital.

Investigators have yet to determine the motive for the shooting, for which the men were allegedly paid a 40,000 baht deposit on a fee of 80,000 baht.

A British man is believed to have been friendly with both women.

No idea what you are talking about, egres. Does that mean we have something in common?


Just read that money might have been involved. Old GF not happy with new GF getting cash. I'm sure it will all come out shortly.

As I read, even Millions of Baht involved!
What surprises me, is the age of the women involved.
Late 40is and Mid 50is!
Usualy you have the older guy who falls for the much younger women and gets robbed of his assests.
The story shows, that greed can have a negative influence in any age!

What striked me in this case, is the amount of cash needed to get a (comically but deadly) killer team to really kill someone. Life is still so cheap?

Just read in a local newspaper more details about the case. Best friend in the arms of your BF. It's happened to me in the past (the other way around) and it sucks.

Notice the tabloids don't have the latest on the drowning or the ''I lied'' rape case. As usual great coverage of stale news.
