Thai man brutally murders his mother in Bangkok
A man in Bangkok has been charged with the brutal murder of his mother after she was found with plastic bags around her head and neck. The murder took place Wednesday night in Bangkok’s Lumphini district, where the 26-year-old engineer killed his mother in the food court where she worked, according to witnesses who contacted police.
Police were summoned to the fourth floor of the Mahatun Plaza building on Ploenchit Road, where witnesses were still gathered to discuss the brutal events that had just happened.
The fourth floor of the office building contains a parking garage and the food court where the victim had a booth and police officers arrived accompanied by rescuers, forensic officers and a doctor.
Witnesses directed police to a room where the unnamed suspect had locked himself after committing the murder. Officers convinced him to come out and surrender after negotiating with him through the locked door. He was taken to Lumphini Police Station.
After the police convinced the man to open the door, the police found his 60-year-old mother. She had died and was covered in blood with four plastic bags over her head tied tightly around her neck. Police found two knives on the floor near her body. Witnesses said that without provocation, the man went mad and suddenly attacked his mother and killed her. He is incarcerated and suspected of matricide.
The 26-year-old man was on leave and visited his mother in Bangkok for about 2 weeks before his insane attack killed her. He works as an engineer for a large company in Rayong and suffered from work-related stress. He had recently sought treatment for this stress at Samitivej Hospital.
