A 37 year old executive secretary tragically fell to her death from the 14th floor of a condominium in the Bang Sue area. Police initiated an investigation, with initial reports suggesting the woman suffered from severe depression.

Police received a report of a woman falling to her death at a condominium in Bang Sue, Bangkok, early today, July 10, at 5am. Police officers, forensic experts, a medical examiner from Phra Mongkut Hospital, and volunteers from the Ruamkatanyu Foundation arrived at the scene promptly.

The building, a 25-storey residential condominium, became the site of a distressing discovery. The deceased, identified as 37 year old Jitsupa was found lying face down on the pavement in front of the building.

She was wearing a short-sleeved t-shirt with black, white, and red stripes and blue jeans. Her body exhibited severe injuries, including a fractured skull and broken limbs. Nearby, her identification card and mobile phone were found.

Family members reported that Jitsupa worked as a secretary for a well-known company and lived alone in the condominium. They revealed that she had been under significant stress due to financial debts.

She had borrowed 50,000 baht (US$1,370) from relatives and had additional debts from various sources. Her struggles with debt reportedly led to her developing depression, for which she received treatment at Rajavithi Hospital, reported KhaoSod.

Police Lieutenant Thanyanan, the case officer, stated that the initial hypothesis is that Jitsupa’s severe depression and stress over her debts may have led to her tragic fall from her 14th-floor condominium. Her body has been sent to Phra Mongkut Hospital for an autopsy to determine the precise cause of death. The family has been contacted to arrange the collection of her body for religious rites.
