The lead vocalist and bass player of Thai metal band “Surrender of divinity” was only 36 years old when he was brutally stabbed to death in his own living room while his wife and child were upstairs.
Samong Traisattha, informally known as Avaejee, was murdered by Prakarn Harnphanbusakorn, who dropped by his house in Sai mai, Bangkok, under the pretense of silk screening some T shirts and having a couple of beers.
Samong’s wife left the room to put their child to bed and returned to a bloody murder scene. He had been stabbed a total of 30 times.
Self-proclaimed “Satanist”, Prakarn Harnphanbusakorn, who went by the Facebook username “maleficent.meditation”, posted an update on his page confessing to the crime, along with a gory photo of his handy work.
In a wall of text he confessed that the reasons he committed the murder weren’t relevant, as he was planning to commit suicide. However he did go on to elaborate that the reason for the slaying was because Samong wasn’t a real Satanist. Harnphanbusakorn claimed to have real faith in the Devil and admitted the he was going to kill 30-50 more people, but his plans were foiled by the police check points that had been set up around the city.
He described his actions in detail, commenting on how much better it is to kill with a knife than it is with a gun. Although the media reported that Harnphanbusakorn was a fan, he denied it and along with the comparison to the death of John Lennon, and claimed it was nothing of the sort and that he didn’t even like the band. He finished off the post by thanking those who had read it in its entirety, and said that he hoped to be with Satan soon.
Prakarn Harnphanbusakorn is currently in prison serving a 20 year sentence.
