As police continue to search for the boy’s identity, they ask that anyone reading this who might recognize the description and who knows of a missing boy about 7 years old, to please contact them immediately.

They gave no contact details, but any police station should be able to assist.

Pol. Capt. Sirisak Aransri, Investigating Inspector of Najomtien Police Station in Sattahip, was the attending officer.

The young victim had a gaping hole in the back of his skull, three stab wounds to the abdomen, and severely damaged legs.
