CityNews – At around 12:35 a.m. on Thursday, April 17th, Pol. Lt. Utai Utaya of the Nakorn Sawan Takhli Police Station received a call from Suthirak Sammajarit (24) that his wife was murdered in their house.
The officials investigated the house with medical examiners from Takhli Hospital and Volunteer Rescue Unit from Takhil Foundation. At the single floor concrete house, they found a one-year old baby crying beside the body of his mother, Budsarin Jandet (24.) Her body had been stabbed at least 10 times by a knife around her neck, body, back, waist and chest. After the initial autopsy, they estimated that the victim died an hour before and may have known the murderer. He allegedly talked to the victim before killing her in front of her infant son.
Suthirak told the officials that he and his wife lived in that house with their son. They work as farmers. He found the body in a pool of blood after he return from corn harvesting. He said that his wife had never had any conflict with anyone.
The officials took Suthirak to the station for fingerprints and further questioning because some details given by him sounded suspicious. They are still working on finding the murder’s motive.
