A police station deputy chief's son on Tuesday confessed to killing a Silpakorn University student with a screwdriver in Cha-am district, Phetchaburi, late last month as the Crime Suppression Division (CSD) took over the case and found nearly 20 suspects.

He reportedly confessed during the interrogation of 16 suspects, aged 18-27, including two women, at the CSD in Bangkok on Tuesday.

The CSD took over the case from local police as relatives and friends of the 24-year-old victim Teerapong Thitathan, a fourth-year student of Silpakorn University's Phetchaburi campus, feared impartiality as some of the suspects are related to police officers and politicians.
