A Thai woman in Pathum Thani province near Bangkok allegedly committed suicide in her car by using a charcoal stove to kill herself with her 11 Poodle dogs.

A rescue team, Ruamkatanyu Volunteer Association, was alerted to the death of the Thai woman and her 11 pet dogs and reported the news on its official Facebook page today. According to the report, 12 lifeless bodies were discovered in a black Ford SUV parked in front of a building of the Thai National Housing’s accommodation project in Pathum Thani.

According to KhaoSod, the woman was found dead in the driver’s seat and her dead pet dogs were found in the back seat. Rescuers also found a charcoal stove in the car boot, leading them to believe that the woman used it to kill herself and her dogs by carbon monoxide poisoning.

As the rescuers could not locate a contract with the woman’s relatives, they took to social media to search for her family or friends. The woman’s brother later contacted the rescue team and provided some information to the media.

According to the brother, the dead woman was 48 years old and called Prakaiwan. She worked as a translator, translating documentaries and television series from Japanese to Thai language. She had a lot of Poodles because she bred them for sale.

The brother did not know the suicide motive. He said his sister lived alone and they rarely met with each other.

A witness reported that the woman parked her car at the spot at 5am today. She left the car engine running for five hours and it stopped at 10am but no one got out of the car. The person thought it was suspicious and reported it to a security guard who discovered 12 lifeless bodies inside the car.

Further details of the case are under the investigation of Pathum Thani Police Station.

Watchdog Thailand Foundation (WDT) also shared the tragic story on its official Facebook page. A lot of Thai netizens commented on the post to express their condolences.

Last week, a similar incident occurred in the Latkrabang district of Bangkok, where a Thai man committed suicide inside his car using smoke from a charcoal stove. His body was found in a grey Toyota sedan parked at a parking area of the Airport Rail Link Latkrabang Station. A dead letter was found in his car and later handed over to his family.
