CityNews – Police are hunting down the suspect in a homicide case involving a 61 year old woman who was stabbed to death.

On the night of May 19th, Sombun Insan, 61, returned home in Nong Tong, Hang Dong District from a house blessing ceremony. Tossaphorn Kaewnoi, her son-in-law was at home and heard the sound of her car. Then he heard Sombun scream. He rushed to the scene and saw her being assaulted by the suspect. Sombun had already been stabbed. The suspect shoved her away and fled when her son-in-law entered the scene. Sombun’s daughter, who was also at home and witnessed the assault, approached Sombun who was bleeding heavily and Tossaphorn chased after the suspect who eventually managed to escape.

Both Tossaphorn and his wife can only vaguely identify the suspect as someone wearing a long sleeves shirt. The only evidence police have is the torchlight the suspect dropped while escaping. The victim shortly passed away after the attack.

On May 21st, police visited the scene again to gather evidence. The suspect is yet to be identified. Police suspected that the motive might involve the loan business of the victim while also having not ruled out the possibility of burglary although there has been no obvious valuable items stolen. Police also express their optimism that the suspect will be identified soon.
