    Life, Arusa Pisuthipan, Published on 17/09/2018

    » For almost three weeks, we have been hearing a string of updates about 40-year-old Surasit Palasak, who was charged with the rape of a 17-year-old girl. This is not a straightforward rape case, by the way, because Surasit, a native of Si Sa Ket province, has claimed to be spirit medium of Fiery-Eye Hermit. A surprise twist here is that Surasit has suffered from polio since birth, at least according to his mother.
