16-year-old bar girl found dead in South Pattaya


A 16-year-old bar girl was found dead in her South Pattaya apartment, with police saying a mysterious “man in black” may have killed her.

The body of the Witcha­yapat Nannitichot, who police said worked in an entertainment venue in South Pattaya, was discovered by 19-year-old friend Patchara Dasri Dec. 19, two days after they last spoke.

The girl was found lying face down on her bed, dressed in black with a blanket over her legs. No wound was found initially due to decomposition of the body. Her remains were sent for an autopsy.

Police said security cameras showed Witchayapat and a man dressed in black coming back to her Soi Khopai 5 apartment Dec. 17 and the man leaving alone about an hour later. Witchayapat never left the room again.

Police collected forensic evidence and video footage and are trying to identify the mystery man.
