On arrival at the scene, authorities found the young man, whose last name remains withheld, lying in a pool of blood near the entrance of the home.

At the scene, police found two sharp kitchen knives, another blunt knife, and a hammer, all of which were close to the deceased. The home’s owner, an 84 year old woman only identified as Si, told officers that she and her daughter were watching television when the man entered their home.

The man proceeded to the nearby kitchen, picked up two knives, and stabbed himself twice in the abdomen. He then picked up a hammer and hit himself on the head several times before taking a blunt knife and slashing his throat, reported KhaoSod.
