Thai family all found dead

A 41-year-old father who was drowning in family debt is believed to have murdered his wife and two sons before slitting his own neck.

The tipping point was supposed to be a phone scam that cost his wife 1.7 million baht that she had financed herself.

The tragedy occurred at the family’s three-story townhouse on a road behind Wat Nam Daeng in tambon Bang Kaew, Bang Phli district, and was reported to local police at around 1 a.m. on Monday.

Wipaporn Racha, the 44-year-old wife, and the couple’s youngest son, Punnapat Dokmai, were discovered dead on the first floor by police. They both had serious cuts on their necks and bodies.

The second son, 13-year-old Boonyanont Dokmai, was discovered dead in front of a bedroom door on the second level. Sanit Dokmai, the husband, lying face up on the floor, clutching his bleeding neck, which had a deep slice across it. His wrist was also slashed. He was given first aid by rescue workers and sent to the hospital.

Tharinee Sengsant, 46, the husband’s work supervisor, told police that Mr Sanit called her after midnight and told her he had slain his wife and two boys. She dialed his neighbor’s number and rushed to the house, while the neighbor dialed 911.

She claimed Mr Sanit had previously informed her that he was in risk of losing the house because he had guaranteed a car loan for someone who had defaulted. He claimed he could pay off the debt with a little loan.

On the other hand, his wife had recently fallen for a call scammer’s trick and borrowed about 1.7 million baht, which she then sent to the fraudster. Every day, creditors demanded compensation from his family.

According to Ms Tharinee, the scam’s damage could have been the final straw, leading to the catastrophe.

Mr Sanit’s coworker Wiroon Kaew-on said the man was typically calm and hardworking, and he didn’t smoke or drink much. Mr Wiroon, on the other hand, stated that he had been consistently concerned about his family’s indebtedness.

According to Pol Col Rangsan Khamsuk, acting chief of the Bang Kaew police station, the dead wife, Wipaporn, filed a report last Friday. She stated that she had sought for a loan of 100,000 baht. Using a phone lending app, I was duped into paying more over a million baht for alleged “procedural fees.
