The family has my sympathies, but I won't be surprised if this is an "inside" related job. Sometimes the groundskeeper or cleaners  talk about their employers.

Waritsara and Stephane – shaken but unharmed – called Noen Sa-nga Police Station at 3.05am. Police went to the scene, about 3 kilometres from Ban Non Pa Chat village

I wonder if the police arrived straight away? If so, this must be headline news!
On the two separate occasions my family called the police during the night, they never even answered the phone - and that included dialling 191 as well as Udon Thani police station.
