The public has been told by Bangkok police that they will conduct a simple, impartial investigation into the shooting deaths of a well-known Thai Internet celebrity and her partner without outside interference.
Supitcha, a 20-year-old lady also known as “Gigi,” and her boyfriend, Phumipat, a second-year cadet at the Armed Forces Academies Preparatory School, were discovered dead yesterday (Wednesday) at the former’s condominium in Bangkok’s Asoke-Phetchaburi neighborhood. Two spent shells were discovered in the room, and they appeared to have been shot in the head.
The commander of the Metropolitan Police Bureau’s First Division, Pol Maj-Gen Atthaporn Wongsiripreeda, stated today that he is awaiting autopsy and forensic findings, particularly about the gunpowder residue.
Police have not yet disclosed any more suspects in the shootings.
Chutikan, Supitcha’s mother, told the media that she had warned her daughter about her boyfriend’s behavior and his fondness for firearms and suggested that the shooting may have been the result of an argument between Phumipat and her daughter.
Yesterday, many pictures of Phumipat practicing shooting at a range while toting an automatic rifle and other weapons were shared on social media.
According to her, Phumipat’s family has apologized to her family.
To transport Supitcha’s remains to a temple in the province of Nakhon Pathom for burial ceremonies, her family traveled to Ramathibodi Hospital today.
Because the handgun discovered in the condominium room is supposedly the property of Phumipat’s father, an army general, her father, Kirati, requested that the police file a lawsuit against him.
He added that Supitcha had told her sister around two months ago that she had moved to the condo in the Asoke-Phetchaburi area because Phumipat had assaulted her.
