The man accused of killing 12 people at the historic Washington Navy Yard in the United States had taught himself Thai and recently visited Thailand to begin plans to move to the country, friends and law enforcement said Tuesday. 

Aaron Alexis, 34, lived and worked for three years with Nutpisit Suthamtewakul, owner of the Happy Bowl Thai restaurant in Fort Worth, up to Monday, when he went on the rampage that cost 12 innocent people and himself their lives.
