Store owner’s death “was suicide’

KATHU: A grocery store owner living in the Moo Baan Irawadee housing development in Ketho apparently committed suicide early this morning by shooting himself in the head.

Pol Lt Col Ampolwat Saengraung of Tung Tong Police Station identified the man as 35-year-old Songkhla native Prawee “Ead” Kaewbutr.

He lived with his daughter and common-law wife, who discovered his body in a bedroom at about 1 am. He had apparently shot himself in the right temple with a .38-caliber pistol, which was found next to his head.

The bullet and traces of gunpowder taken from K. Prawee’s hand have been sent to the Office of Forensic Science in Bangkok to confirm that the death was suicide.
