Nakhon Ratchasima shoots himself after CNY celebrations

A Nakhon Ratchasima man has shot himself while his mother and sister were washing up in the next room following a Chinese New Year dinner in their shophouse.

Police were alerted to the suicide at a house on Soi Pattana Prapa Community 2 in Nai Muang, Muang district at 6.45pm last night.

They arrived to find Weerawat Phisitthapat’s body lying in the ground-floor living room with a gunshot wound to the left side of his chest.

A .38 revolver was found nearby. His mother and sister said Weerawat showed no sign of distress as he tucked into the family Chinese New Year dinner. Then, while they were cleaning dishes in the kitchen, they heard a gunshot. On entering the living room they found he was already lying dead.

The mother and sister told police that Weerawat, who was single, may have become depressed after spending all of a 10 million baht legacy he received five years ago. They said he was addicted to gambling.
