A university student who was beaten up and stabbed in the head with a screwdriver during an attack at his dormitory in Phetchaburi on the night of February 25 died from bleeding in the brain, a second autopsy has found.

Silpakorn University student Thirapong Thitatharn, 24, succumbed to his injuries in hospital on March 2.

Chief of the Forensic Police Institute Maj General Pornchai Suteerakune said on Monday that the latest finding by the institute's medical examiner was in line with a previous autopsy carried out by Ratchaburi Hospital, where Thirapong died.

He also praised the Ratchaburi's examiner for conducting the initial autopsy thoroughly. 

“Thirapong died from the bleeding in the brain which was punctured by a screwdriver through the area above his right ear, which is the fragile part of the skull. His body also had some bruises and two shallow stab wounds by screwdriver in his back,” Pornchai said.

He said Thirapong’s body would later be released for relatives to collect for religion rites.
