Perpetrators: Mr. Kitti, 29
Victims: Mr. Printhon, 18
What: A porridge (ข้าวต้ม) shop in Sisaket was the scene of a deadly stabbing in the early morning hours of December 16th, 2020. The victim, Mr. Printhon, 18, had traveled to the porridge shop with 6 of his friends to eat after a night out before going home.
CCTV footage shows that Mr. Printhon parked his motorbike at the shop and was confronted by a man who’s described as being 25-30 years old. The suspect approached Mr. Printhon and slapped him. Mr. Printhon asked why he was slapped. The perpetrator then pulled out a knife and stabbed Mr. Printhon in the chest and fled the scene. Mr. Printhon collapsed from the stab wound.
Investigators have determined that the perpetrator was Mr. Kitti, 29. Law enforcement hasn’t found the suspect yet.
Mr. Boonmee Pho Thon, the victim’s father, said that on the day of the stabbing his son asked to go to a birthday party at a friend’s house. It’s reported that Mr. Kitti punched Mr. Printhon’s friend there, and that this might have been a source of the conflict.

My take: An unfortunate escalation between two young men. The kid was sticking up for his friend – and then got stuck for the last time. Our condolences to the family for losing their young son.
