The suspect stabbed the fuel attendant 10 times, leaving him in a pool of blood, and drove off without paying — once home, he shot his neighbor in the head.
The man named in both incidents is Mr. Sarawut Khanseri, 25 years old.
Investigators found blood-stained pants and 3 knives in his home.
The deceased fuel attendant is identified as Mr. Sarawut Nakawichai (same first name as attacker), 39 years old. He was found dead, stabbed 10 times: four in the neck, in in the chest, one under the navel, two on the left side, and two in the back.
Blood was found all over the scene. The victim’s phone was found and he was trying to type out a message on Facebook while the suspect stabbed him to death.
Mr. Khanseri drove his motorbike up to the gas station and asked for 40 baht in fuel. He wasn’t able to pay, and drew a knife. Mr. Khanseri drove away but came back and started a fight with the deceased. The victim tried to run away but Mr. Khanseri tracked him down and stabbed him to death.
Mr. Nakawichai had worked at this station for many years and lived in a nearby home.
After slaying Mr. Nakawichai the suspect then drove home. Without any apparent motive, he went to his neighbor’s house and found his next victim sleeping in a hammock. Her name was Ms. Maliwan, 40 years old.
He took a .38 caliber and shot her in the head, killing her at the scene.
The suspect’s mother said her son had never had a manic episode before. Most of the time he stayed home and was quiet. They weren’t aware of his drug abuse until being informed after the attacks.
Mr. Khanseri was arrested and was unable to give testimony because he was “still psychotic.” The report says that if his symptoms improve, a criminal investigation will commence.

Defend independent crime reporting in Thailand.
Stay informed with weekly digests of top crime stories & original reports. No selling, no spam!
My take: Two lives taken for no apparent reason. No motive, no past insult or injury according to the reports. Just purely random lashing out leaving two dead and several families grieving.
Meth induced paranoia is all that we can point to.
