"What ever happened to Tepparod?" a somewhat morbid story.

Richard Gould-Saltman | Feb 19, 2003 12:12 PM

Days or weeks ago, someone posted a "what happened to" inquiry about, among other places, Tepparod Thai, one of the first Thai places in LA, which used to be around the corner from the Loz Feliz Theater and what was then Chatterton's Books.

Just stumbled across this in a website about the Phoenix Thai Temple murders:

"Nine days before the temple murders, someone at Wat Promkunaram called the Thai Tepparod restaurant in Hollywood. The restaurant, which closed recently, was owned by two Thai citizens, one of whom -- Bruranasombat Chow -- is now a fugitive wanted by the FBI for questioning in connection with the contract murder of a police informant. An FBI spokesman says that though there are no outstanding warrants for Chow's arrest, he is believed to be involved with the heroin trade in Florida, Las Vegas, and New York".

Don't have any independent confirmation of the accuracy of this, butr if true, certainly a more interesting turn of events than, say, a health code violation.
