In September 2017, I wrote a summary on 'The Enigma of the Deaths on October 6' for the Documentation of Oct 6 Project. One of the issues mentioned was the photo of a man holding a chair and using it to beat the body of a hanged victim on Sanam Luang. The photo by Neil Ulevich, which won a Pulitzer Prize in 1977, was one of the most viewed photos of the October 6th incident. The 'chair' in the man's hand has therefore become a symbol of violence. But 40 years have passed and we still do not know who he was; very few people even cared to ask who he was.
