ONE YEAR OLD BOY BEATEN TO DEATH – According to news reports from PhuketNews a little boy at just one year old has been beaten to death in a savage attack.
Last night officials on the holiday island of Phuket, Thailand have refused to name the boy who was rushed to the hospital last Friday evening.
According to the official report, the boy was administered with emergency treatment and then transferred to the state run hospital Vachira, in Phuket.
Doctors pronounced the boy dead the following morning at 8:30am.
An initial autopsy was performed where pathologists discovered the boy had been subjected to such a savage attack that it resulted in internal hemorrhaging after his liver and other internal organs had been severely ruptured.
The police officer in charge of the case, Pol Lt Col Prakob Boonkuan, told reporters that they have so far discovered the boy lived with relatives after the breakdown of his parents’ marriage.
According to investigators, they have questioned the family members as to who was responsible for the boys’ murder; unfortunately police have reported that the family is refusing to assist the police in their inquiries.
The little boy’s body has now been transported to a forensic facility in Surat Thani in order to determine the precise cause of death and assist police with forensic evidence to the identity of the suspected killer.
Meebal.com took to the local ThaiVisa forum in order to get a feel for the mood from its army of readers of whom many are suggesting that the entire family should be held accountable for the little boy’s death and for perverting the course of justice.
Murder in Thailand carries the death penalty, although most avoid this fate by pleading guilty to the crime. In such circumstances the courts will inevitably hand down the lesser sentence of life in prison.
There are also cries of indignation as to how anyone could possibly harm an innocent one year old child; many asking what a one year old boy could have possibly done to be subjected to such a brutal attack resulting in his death.
Other members of the ThaiVisa forum state that such a crime leaves them with the belief that the world is devoid of any humanity.
The case remains under investigation by the local Thai police.
