Bangkok father jumps to his death after acquittal of suspect in his son’s murder

A tragic story from the Bangkok Criminal Court today where it’s emerged that a man has jumped to his death after witnessing the acquittal of the suspect in his son’s murder. The man jumped from the sixth floor of the court building at 10am.

Supachai Kanlahasunthorn came to the court at 9am to hear the verdict in the trial of a man accused of stabbing his son to death in April 2016. Supachai broke down in tears after the judge read the verdict acquitting the defendant at 10am.

Leaving the courtroom, he climbed through a hall window onto a terrace, over a wall, and then jumped to his death in the car park of court officials.

In the case, Supachai’s son was stabbed to death on the night of April 15, 2016 on Prachasongkroh road in Bangkok’s Din Daeng district. The court ruled that evidence and testimony from defence witnesses undermined the charges, while the prosecution lacked strong evidence.

After Supachai jumped, his sister-in-law rushed downstairs to see the body.

She broke into tears and had to be helped by officials into the court building to calm down. She claimed that her nephew did not receive justice, prompting her brother-in-law to commit suicide.

She said the murder incident should have been recorded on security cameras, but the owners claimed the cameras had broken down.

Teacher hangs herself ‘to atone for sins of previous life’

A 40 year old has been found dead, hanged in an apparent suicide at her parents’ home in Suphan Buri province, north west of Bangkok, yesterday. The former contract teacher had claimed to have memories of her previous life as a soldier who had taken many lives.

The suicide report of Somkid Ridkanto in Tambon Sa Kaew, Muang district said she had been dead two hours before her body was found under a mango tree within grounds of the house.

A suicide note by her apologising to her parents for not being able to help take care of them was found in the house.

Somkid’s mother, 64 year old Somjai Ridkanto, says her daughter used to work as a contract teacher and had resigned to work in a factory. After she divorced her husband, Somkid moved back to stay with her parents but later suffered severe headaches that deterred her from getting a job.

Somjai said her daughter had told her she wished to die to repay for her previous sins. Her daughter had told her she had memories of her previous life as a soldier who had killed many people, and that their spirits were now after her. She was taken to seek mental health treatment and when her condition improved, she returned home. Somjai said she had no inkling of what was to follow that day when her daughter prostrated in front of her on Saturday evening.

Police suspected that Somkid had committed suicide due to stress over her inability to provide for her parents and her belief that she must die to pay for her previous life’s sins.

The medical examiner inspected the body and after the suicide report, police released her body to the family.
