A three year old girl disappeared from a nursery in the Isaan province of Sisaket before her dead body was found in a swamp 800 meters away. Her devastated parents suspect foul play.

The body of the young girl, Bee, was found in a swamp in the middle of a rice field in the Yan Chum Noi district of Sisaket province on Saturday, June 15. Officers from the Yang Chum Noi Police Station were called to the scene to investigate.

Upon arrival, officers met with Bee’s 26 year old father, Parinya Maneewong. Parinya explained that he received a call from a community head informing him that his daughter had disappeared from the Ban Khor Child Development Centre around 12.50pm.

Parinya said he searched inside the centre and then the surrounding area until he discovered his daughter’s body in the swamp.

Parinya revealed that he and his wife have two children, a 6 year old boy and the 3 year old deceased girl. They worked at a fruit plantation in the central province of Chanthaburi and had just returned to their home province of Sisaket four to five days before the incident.

Parinya emphasised that he and his wife found the death suspicious. He believed it impossible for his daughter to walk alone from the nursery to the swamp, as it was over 800 metres away across a paddy field ridge.

Moreover, the shoes the girl was wearing were not hers and were too clean for shoes that walked through a muddy rice field. He also did not see the girl’s footprints at the scene or nearby. Her diaper was found neatly placed on the bank of the swamp.

Parinya believes someone must carry the girl to the swamp and urged officers to conduct an autopsy and further investigation.

Parinya added that he had a premonition the day before his daughter’s death. He asked her what she wanted to be in the future, and she said she wanted to be a ghost. He thought it was just a child’s funny response and did not expect anything bad would happen.

Police officers found no signs of attack at the scene or on the girl’s body but Sisaket Hospital will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
