Three weeks have passed since it came to light that Daniel Sancho, the son of actor Rodolfo Sancho, went to a police station in Thailand and, after denying it several times, confessed to the murder and dismemberment of Colombian surgeon Edwin Arrieta. Little by little, more details about the relationship they both had are becoming known and some details about the case are being clarified, as well as the day-to-day life of the chef in prison. This Saturday, Watcharapong Boonsaior, the director of the Koh Samui prison, revealed more details about the chef's situation.
The director of the prison where Sancho is being held has spoken exclusively with the Fiesta de verano program. "He is behaving very well and is collaborating in everything. Now he is in the nursing area, where he usually exercises daily," he assured. "Since the first day he entered, he has had acute pain in his back. He is improving. It depends on the doctor. If he is mentally well, if he is prepared to go out with the others, he will come out. But if he has some fear, they will not allow him to go outside. the common area. For now they are preparing him both physically and mentally. He has to be one hundred percent," he said.
Boonsaior has denied to the Telecinco program that there was a risk of suicide on the part of the young man, but he has said that in his first days in prison he showed signs of being in 'shock'. "The first day in prison is the most normal and common. Nobody is prepared to be in this place. At first, every inmate is. In the case of Daniel, we do not think there was a risk of suicide. The medical team is watching him 24 hours", said the Thai.
Regarding his state of mind, the man assures that after the visit from his mother, Silvia Bronchalo, he is "happier." "He's not crying every day. At first he seemed sad. He's still sad, but he's not as exaggerated as at the beginning. The first week for all the prisoners is a shock in his life," he confesses. On the other hand, the prison director has confirmed that Sancho now has short hair. "He cut his hair for hygiene. It is something common that is done to all prisoners. It is a prison rule," he sentenced.
One of the topics that has been talked about a lot in recent days has been the number of inmates that can be in the same cell in Thai prisons. On this subject, the director has avoided going into details and has not revealed how many people Sancho shares his time in prison with. He has also indicated that the young man's attitude has changed to positive after the recent visits from his mother and has denied that there is favorable treatment for him, although he admits that his case must be treated with caution due to the great media coverage. of the.
On the other hand, he has ensured that the chef keeps his torso uncovered to see if there are signs of bruising and ensures that his mental health is monitored daily. "We psychologically assess Daniel every day," sentenced the highest authority of the prison in which the Spaniard is found.
On the other hand, the investigation of the case continues its course. A few days ago, the cause of Edwin's death came to light. "We already have the definitive results of the autopsy. First they fought, according to the evidence, at the scene (of the crime). Daniel punched him, then the doctor fell and hit his head on the sink, but he did not die in that moment, but when Daniel Sancho began to cut his throat, according to forensics," the Thai police said. Now we will have to wait to know how the case continues to develop.
