A 53 year old man was arrested for allegedly shooting and killing his 19 year old girlfriend yesterday in Bangkok while they were riding in a taxi.

Reports say the couple were in a taxi passing by the Big C Rama II complex on Rama II Road when the shooting took place. The woman apparently told her boyfriend that she was breaking up with him. A report by Nation Thailand says a “fight broke out” and the man allegedly pulled out a gun and shot his girlfriend.

The man opened the taxi door and tried to flee, but he was later caught by locals and detained by police. The woman was sent to a hospital, but later died.

  1. @Nigel – Yep, too right… and what i find curious is most of these “name the Farang reports” are penned by frickin’ ‘farang’!!
    “He’s Thai so, we had better not upset the Thai people! They get angry and lose face if they’re named and shamed!” And, yes, they all believe in ghosts! KNOBS!!

  2. Ah isn’t love strange. Who would have thought a 19 year old girl would fall for a 53 year old man?
    Maybe he had hidden attributes that were not evident, and suddenly they were not enough.

  3. @Robin Banks. That’s my main concern and something I’ve commented on now several times. I don’t now what the Thai media say as apart from a few words, I can’t read Thai. However, the English media (Bangkok Post, The Nation and indeed here in Thaiger insist on identifying nationalities in what appear often to be nothing more than a sop to Thais. It’s totally unacceptable and does nothing to reduce the xenophobia that exists in Thailand.

  4. @Nigel –

    It is quite different in the UK, if the person is white then skin colour is mentioned, if the person is black then it is not mentioned.

    For example 95% of knife crime in London is committed by black males killing other black males in gang rivalry, that is never mentioned openly.

  5. @Jeff – You knew her then ? Or are you just trotting out racist stereotypical claptrap that western neanderthals love to spew ? Aren’t you getting missed on thaivisa the racists bible ?
