Police have released a facial sketch of a possible suspect in Monday’s massacre of a village headman and seven members of his family in Krabi.



The sketch, based on a survivor’s description of the assailant, shows a young man wearing a cap. 

He is wanted in connection with the murder of Worayuth Sunglung and seven members of his family and the wounding of three other family members.

Police are checking surveillance recordings from CCTV cameras along the route the assailants are believed to have used when fleeing the scene, and from others around the Tambon Ban Klang Administrative Organisation office a kilometre away.

The assailants made off with a computer hard drive also containing a recording of Worayuth’s house.

Police are looking for two black Toyota Fortuner SUVs seen passing back and forth in front of the house on the eve of the attack.
