A mother in Nakhon Ratchasima province was found dead at home with her throat slit today (August 12), in what police suspect was a murder stemming from a romantic affair.
Nattarika Shibahara, 29, lived with her 6-year-old daughter, who was at school when the incident happened. The dead woman’s Singaporean husband was also away.
A forensic team said she died for three hours before police discovered the body, which was sent to Maharat Nakhon Ratchasima Hospital for an autopsy.
Police found no sign of forced entry but there was evidence of a fight in a bedroom. The house was also ransacked.
Investigators are working on the theory that the motivation for the murder involved a romantic affair, since the victim was “good looking and had several relationships in the past”.
