In Tambon Jed Yod, in the early hours of the morning at 1AM, a 27-year-old individual named Brian Andrew Burggraf was apprehended by the police. As he traversed the road on foot, law enforcement spotted him and decided to conduct a search. The search unearthed a potentially lethal item – a knife approximately 15 centimeters in length hidden in the man’s trouser pocket. Alongside it was a packet of hashish marijuana.
The police argue that Burggraf openly confessed to executing a brutal assault on a Dutch father-son duo – Erik Jan, 52, and his son Colin Mike, 20. The victims were a part of a group of eight Dutch tourists. They were leisurely ambling along the historical Chiang Mai moat in the region at about 9pm when this dreadful ordeal unfolded. When questioned, the suspect refrained from explaining his motive behind this horrendous act.
Several eyewitnesses conveyed their account of the incident to the law enforcement officials. They portrayed a disturbing scene where Burggraf sauntered up from behind this group of innocent tourists and then unleashed his brutal assault on them. The brutality of the attack was such that Jan was met with a horrifying 10-centimeters long cut across his throat and two viciously deep stab wounds in his back. Meanwhile, his son Colin Mike suffered from a deep, elongated slash on his arm.
After the vicious onslaught, the pair was immediately transported to the Chiang Mai Hospital. The authorities were alerted in due time, and the victims received medical attention promptly.
However, something peculiar struck the local populace and they relayed their concerns to the police. They expressed their suspicion that this wasn’t the first time Burggraf had lashed out in such a brutal manner. In fact, they believed that he may have attacked yet another foreign tourist in the same vicinity with a similar weapon of choice – a knife. The victim of this previous assault also had stab wounds on the back, quite akin to Jan’s. What struck them odd was the attire that Burggraf was spotted in. It supposedly matched the description of the assailant from the previous attack they spoke about, throwing more fuel onto their suspicions.
