Parents plead for justice after daughter found dead in Khon Kaen

In a tragic revelation today, the parents of a 30 year old woman who was discovered murdered and stuffed in a sack in a cassava field, have expressed their belief that three men are responsible for their daughter’s death. The couple, still reeling from their loss, is urgently calling for the authorities to track down the culprits as they seek justice for their daughter, Sasithornthorn, and the future security of her two young children.

The case, which is currently under intense investigation by the police, was escalated after Sasithornthorn’s parents reported unsettling dreams in which their daughter seemed to communicate details about her attackers.

The incident occurred in Khon Kaen province, where Deputy Provincial Police Chief, Preecha Kengsarikit, along with other law enforcement officials, convened to expedite the investigation into the murder. Sasithornthorn’s body was discovered on March 19 in a state of decomposition, wrapped in a fertiliser sack and a mat, and left in a water channel of a cassava plantation in Hua Na Kham Subdistrict, Kranuan District.

The victim’s father, 58 year old, Khamsai, and her mother, 55 year old Sukon, have been left to care for their grandchildren, the eldest being in sixth grade and the youngest in kindergarten. Khamsai recounted how the family had to cremate their daughter on March 21, just three days after her body was discovered.

Sasithorn had a history of not staying at home regularly. Following the break-up with her former partner, she moved in with a new boyfriend, a car mechanic, in the Nong No marketplace, only to separate later. Despite the distance, Sasithorn regularly sent money home to support her parents and her children’s living and educational expenses.

The last time the family had contact with Sasithorn was through a phone call, where she mentioned working at a resort and staying there as well.

Bad dream

Simultaneously, the news reporter visited the deceased’s family home and learned that Sasithorn had appeared in their dreams, not only to her parents but to relatives in Bangkok, implying that three men were involved in her murder.

These dreams eerily matched accounts from other villagers, further convincing the family of multiple assailants. Khamsai expressed a desire for the maximum punishment for the perpetrators if caught, emphasising the void that Sasithornthorn’s death has left in the care of her children.

Adding to the heartbreak, Sukon shared that the last conversation she had with her daughter was on March 8, and everything seemed normal. The following morning, however, all calls to Sasithorn went unanswered.

Before the police confirmed her death, Sukon dreamt of Sasithorn returning home on a motorcycle, concerned about her children’s welfare and leaving money for them. It is a haunting reminiscence that reinforces the family’s plea for swift justice.

The police, with evidence including a motorcycle helmet and a credit card found near the body, are working diligently to apprehend those responsible for this heinous crime, as a community mourns and a family awaits closure.

The authorities are urged to leave no stone unturned in their quest to bring Sasithornthorn’s killers to justice and restore a sense of safety to the grief-stricken family and the local community at large, reported Khaosod.
