Naked body of woman found stabbed to death in Hua Hin

https://www.bangkokpost.com/news/crime/ ... recent_box

PRACHUAP KHIRI KHAN: The naked body of a woman with multiple stab wounds was found in a townhouse in Hua Hin district on Saturday night.

A team of police and members of the Phetkasem rescue team went to the townhouse at Phu Tawan housing estate in tambon Hin Lek Fai at 7.30pm on Saturday night after neighbours reported a foul stench leaking from the townhouse.
They were accompanied by four people who had earlier told police a female relative had disappeared after driving to the resort town on Oct 8.

Police and rescuers cut open the lock on the front gate and entered the townhouse. They traced the smell to a large black plastic container left by the toilet bowl in a bathroom.

They opened the container, removed a blanket and a pillow from the top, and discovered the body of the woman curled up inside it. Forensic police and doctors from Hua Hin Hospital were then called to examine the corpse.

The body, wearing only a black bra, had begun to decompose. Seven stab wounds were found on the neck. The right ear had been hit with a hard object and the left arm appeared disjointed. The woman was believed to have been murdered at least three days previously.

A kitchen knife, tainted with blood, was also found in the bathroom.

The four who accompanied the police confirmed the body was of their relative, identified as Suchapat Hiranpanthachot, 39, of Bangkok's Prawet district.

They also confirmed that a black Chevrolet car found at the townhouse belonged to the murdered woman.
They said Suchapat drove alone in her car to Hua Hin on Oct 8 and they had since lost contact with her.

A police investigation revealed that Suchaphat checked into a hotel in Hua Hin at about 9pm on Oct 8. She left the hotel at about 10am on Oct 9 without checking out. Hotel staff called her room, but received no answer.
On Oct 10, hotel staff entered the room and found the client's belongings, including baggage, still inside. They reported the woman's unexplained disappearance to Hua Hin police for fear that she might have had an accident. On the same day, the woman's relatives also filed a missing person report with Hua Hin police.

Duangdao Balee, 49, a neighbour, told the police that the townhouse next to hers was available for rent. Two men and a woman had been seen arriving at the townhouse in a white car - and a few days later, the woman left the townhouse in the same vehicle, leaving behind two men who did not speak any of the neighbours. A woman later arrived in a black Chevrolet, but Mrs Duangdao said she did not see her face.

Some time later - it was not immediately clear when - Mrs Duangdao heard some strange noises, like those made by falling objects, but did not pay much attention. The next morning, Mrs Duangdao told police, her elder brother saw a man come out of the townhouse, jump over the fence and leave on a motorcycle.
The investigation into the murder continues.

Train suicide linked to woman stabbed to death in Hua Hin

https://www.bangkokpost.com/news/crime/ ... recent_box


PRACHUAP KHIRI KHAN: Police have established a link between a man who apparently committed suicide by lying down in front of an oncoming train, and a woman found dead in a townhouse in Hua Hin district.

Provincial police chief Surasak Suksawaeng said on Sunday investigators were convinced that the death of Dittawat Droch was related to the murder of Suchapat Hiranpanthachot.

Earlier report: Naked body of woman found stabbed to death in Hua Hin
Suchapat, 39, from Prawet district of Bangkok was found dead on Saturday night at a townhouse at Phu Tawan housing estate in the resort town. She had been stabbed several times, and her body placed in a large black plastic container in a bathroom.

On the same day that the body of Suchapat was found, Dittawat, 28, a Hua Hin resident was hit by a train at a crossing in neighbouring Cha-am district of Phetchaburi.

The Sawang Sanphet Rescue Foundation on Saturday quoted an eyewitness as saying Dittawat rode his motorcycle to the crossing, jumped off and ran over to the tracks, where he lay down as the Sungai Kolok-bound express train was approaching.

Pol Maj Gen Surasak said on Sunday investigators have established that Dittawat was the man who rented the townhouse where the murdered woman's body was found. Evidence gathered at the crime scene indicated that Dittawat could be the murderer, with no other accomplices, he added.

The Prachuap Khiri Khan police commander said a police were working on the theory that the two might have met at the townhouse, where something prompted Dittawat to become enraged and murder the woman. He might have felt guilty and decided to commit suicide, he added.

Duangdao Balee, 49, a neighbour, told police that earlier two men and a woman had been seen arriving at the townhouse in a white car - and a few days later, the woman left the townhouse in the same vehicle, leaving behind two men who did not speak to any of the neighbours. It was not clear if there was any connection with the murder.

Train suicide man 'confessed to wife' he killed woman in Hua Hin

https://www.bangkokpost.com/news/genera ... recent_box

PRACHUAP KHIRI KHAN: The man who apparently committed suicide by letting a southern train run over him on Saturday night phoned his wife beforehand and confessed he killed a 39-year-old woman whose body, with multiple stab wounds, was found in his rented townhouse in Hua Hin district, police said.

Investigators had identified Dittawat Droch, 28, a Thai-Swiss hotel staffer in Hua Hin, as the prime suspect in the murder of Suchapat Hiranpanthachot, said Pol Maj Gen Surasak Suksawaeng, chief of Prachuap Khiri Khan provincial police. Police were searching for him when he apparently took his own life by lying down in front of an oncoming train at a crossing in neighbouring Cha-am on Saturday night, shortly after the body of the woman was found.

Suchapat, an online saleswoman from Bangkok’s Prawet district, was found dead on Saturday evening at the townhouse rented by Dittawat at Phu Tawan housing estate in Hua Hin. The woman had been stabbed several times in the neck, and her body was stuffed into a large plastic container in a bathroom.

Pol Maj Gen Surasak said Dittawat had met Suchapat online and arranged to meet her at his townhouse. The reason for the meeting was unclear, but Thai media speculated the two were having an affair and that during an argument, he flew into a murderous rage. He allegedly struck her head with a hard object before stabbing her to death and stuffing her body into the plastic container. He then went to work as usual, Thai media reported on Monday.

After investigators found the body and later obtained evidence implicating Dittawat in the murder, the man phoned his wife Anchalee to remorsefully confess he had killed the 39-year-old woman, said the Prachuap Khiri Khan police chief. He then lay down in front of the train in nearby Cha-am district.

The investigators had yet to establish the motive for the murder. They were awaiting forensic results before concluding the case, said Pol Maj Gen Surasak.

The Sawang Sanphet Rescue Foundation on Saturday night quoted an eyewitness as saying Dittawat rode his motorcycle to the crossing, jumped off and ran over to the tracks, where he lay down as the Sungai Kolok-bound express train was approaching.

Thai media reported that on Oct 6 Suchapat posted photos of her hotel room in Hua Hin on Facebook with the message “Recharging batteries...dumping bad things into the sea".

On Oct 8, she posted a picture of herself sitting on her car. It was to be her final Facebook post. She wrote: "It's just dust. It will be washed away."
