An emotionally unstable 21 year old woman left a suicide note of feeling undervalued before taking her own life at her home in Samut Songkhram province. The woman, who had been experiencing severe menstrual pain, left a poignant final message expressing her feelings of being unloved by her husband.

On the evening of the incident, authorities, including Deputy Investigative Officer Ruengwut Im-em of Bang Khon Tee Police Station, were alerted to the suicide at a residence in Moo 5, Bang Kung, Bang Khon Tee district. Upon arrival, they discovered the young woman’s body alongside her husband’s 36 year old mother, who had attempted to resuscitate her daughter-in-law by cutting her down and performing CPR.

Unfortunately, her efforts were in vain, and the woman was estimated to have passed away about 30 minutes before their arrival.

The husband’s mother recounted the harrowing experience, explaining that she was selling durians by the roadside when she was informed of the situation. She rushed back to find her daughter-in-law hanging and immediately cut her down to attempt resuscitation.

Adding to the distress, the power in the house went out suddenly during her life-saving attempts, leaving her in shock.

The woman’s 20 year old husband was not at home during the incident but was summoned by the authorities to provide a statement. Upon his return, he was visibly distraught and shared a heart-wrenching text message from his wife sent at 12.14pm that day.

In her message, she expressed her physical pain and emotional exhaustion, questioning his lack of concern and support. She acknowledged her love for him despite feeling a lack of warmth and closeness.

The husband’s response to his wife’s message had been to wait until she felt better before discussing their issues. He later tried to contact her at 1.51pm, to no avail. The husband described their two-year relationship and his wife’s battles with symptoms akin to depression, often feeling slighted easily. She had previously expressed suicidal thoughts, which had been averted by interventions.

Prior to the incident, the husband was travelling to Rayong to buy durians and did not take his wife with him, fearing the journey would be too exhausting for her. He had encouraged her to rest at home. His trip was cut short when he received a call about his wife’s distressing situation, prompting his immediate return.

Initial investigations suggest that the woman’s depression, compounded by menstrual pain and personal stress, may have led her to take her own life. Her body has been sent for forensic examination at Ratchaburi Hospital, and authorities continue to investigate to determine the exact circumstances leading to this tragedy.
