Dad claims son was ‘lured to death by drug dealer in ruthless honeytrap murder’

A Brit father has claimed his teenage son was lured to his death by a drug dealer who set up a ruthless honeytrap murder plot.

Steven Graham, 60, believes his son was lured to his death by a drug dealer in Thailand and has since confronted the killer, with police staging a reconstruction of the murder in Lampang.

Fighting back the tears and yelling at suspected murderer Chaitwat Boongarin, Graham was held back by police as he hurled angry comments at the man believed to have killed his son, Ben Taota.

He was filmed screaming at Boongarin, with Graham screaming: "Look me in the eyes, you b*****d."

Ben's mother, Ooy, and his father, Steve, spoke to DailyMail about the tragic death of their son, and Steve believes he was lured to meet his killer by a 15-year-old girl.

The girl was believed to be hooked on methamphetamine pills, with Ben riding to a secluded spot with the girl on the back of his bike.

That 15-year-old, Suraphltchaya Khasma, had subsequently disappeared and was sadly found dead, with Thailand police confirming they had found a body.

Ben's father, Steve, said: "Ben was lured to meet his killer in some kind of honeytrap set by this young girl. She is only 15. She and Ben have known each other since they were young. They were close.

"But she is believed to have been in a relationship with this man Wat. He had recently been released from prison and it is clear he was a prolific drug dealer. A very evil man.

"Wat was supplying her with drugs. Somehow Ben got involved with him. This is because the girl was involved."

Police are continuing interrogations of Boongarin, who has allegedly admitted to killing Ben but denied murdering Suraphltchaya.

Speaking of his reaction to seeing his son's potential murderer, Steve added: "Usually I am very English and reserved about my emotions and my anger.

"But after spending that long flight from the UK thinking about my beloved Ben I was just grabbed by the throat by the situation. I used some terrible words. It just flowed out of me."
