Three people were found dead in a murder-suicide that came about following a building dispute in Lamphun yesterday, July 2.
Two of the bodies were found outside a home in Moo 6 Nakorn Chedi, Pa Sang District while a third person with serious injuries died later in Pa Sang District Hospital.
The shooter, Mr. Boriboon Ongcharoen, 39 originally from Phuket, is alleged to have gotten into an argument with Mr. Wiwat Phongphaibul, 38, a Laos national over the construction of Mr. Ongcharoen’s house.
Apparently, Mr. Ongcharoen had paid money to Phongphaibul for the construction of the house but the work wad not been completed.
The murder-suicide took place outside the home as both men were attempting to negotiate a settlement, Ongcharoen snapping.
The third person killed, Ms. Chuen Hathai Pananit, 38 was the wife of Mr. Phongphaibul.
While both the Laos man and his wife were found with multiple gunshot wounds, Mr. Ongchareon was found with a single gunshot wound to the head consistent with suicide.
