Autopsy on Sutthi rules out murder

- +

An official autopsy on environmental activist Sutthi Atchasai confirmed he committed suicide, the Central Institute of Forensic Science (CIFS) revealed yesterday. 

Suwanarong Srisuwan, a CIFS forensic expert, said the bullet that killed Sutthi penetrated the right temple and lodged close to his left temple.

The autopsy also showed the bullet was fired from a gun that was pressed against Sutthi's skin which led the forensic team to believe it was suicide rather than murder as was suspected by some, Dr Suwanarong said.
