Akeyuth’s lawyer submits 13 points of suspicion regarding murder


BANGKOK, June 18 – The lawyer for the Akeyuth Anchanbutr family today filed a complaint with police, seeking a thorough investigation into 13 suspicious issues relating to the murder of the businessman.

Suwat Apaipak, Akeyuth family’s lawyer, submitted the letter to Metropolitan Police Commander Kamronwit Thoopkrachang, asking why the suspects threw away Akeyuth’s valuables if robbery was the motive of the murder.

He asked police to find the missing mobile phone belonging to Santiparb Pengduang, Akeyuth’s driver and alleged co-conspirator in the murder, and Mr Akeyuth’s missing briefcase.

Other requests included searches for some witnesses including a 10-wheel truck driver whom Mr Akeyuth ran to ask for help, and a missing hard disk from a closed-circuit camera which might have recorded activity involving the murder.

Mr Suwat said Mr Akeyuth’s family wanted continued investigations to find the truth behind the murder, adding that his cremation on June 29 may be postponed, if necessary.

Pol Lt Gen Kamronwit said police were waiting for more evidence and information from forensic officials and that investigation will take some time since the case involved several provinces.
