A taxi-motorcyclist was found dead on a roadside in Chon Buri’s Si Racha district on Tuesday morning with a gunshot wound to the head.
Nong Kham police got the call at 6am and found the body of Sompong Faesanthia, 43, in tall grass on the side of Nong Phanpuay-Nong Kla Road in Moo 11, his crashed motorcycle nearby.
He’d been shot in the back of the head with a .38-calibre round and showed an exit wound in the forehead.
Police found a bullet at the scene.
Resident Pisek Sakseesuetrong, 39, said he’d heard three gunshots at 4am but dared not investigate until morning, when he discovered the body.
