Thanid was a 20-year-old Muay Thai boxing champion. He had short black hair and wore red and white ropes on his arms, as well as a mongkol of the same color on his head. At the time of his death, Thanid wore blue boxing trunks, and somehow lost his mongkol. It is known that Thanid's blood type was AB+.
Thanid was found strangled in a boxing ring. Based on the wound's pattern, Angela deduced he was probably strangled with some sort of short rope. She also determined the killer was able to approach and attack Thanid because the Muay Thai boxer was drunk, but still had to be physically fit to struggle with him. This meant the killer was physically fit.
At the Ayutthaya ruins, Jack and the player found a mongkol (a traditional Muay Thai headband) belonging to the victim, which was filed as the murder weapon according to Lars' analysis. The mongkol had traces of lemongrass, which meant the killer used lemongrass.
Killer and motives
The killer turned out to be a bookmaker named Chon Sansurin.
After denying involvement, Chon admitted he strangled Thanid with his own mongkol after he refused to throw his fight against Baxter Fraser, violating their agreement in which Chon would bet for Thanid’s defeat and then give him part of the profits. Judge Adaku sentenced him to 20 years in prison for the murder.
