Three found dead in taxi at a Bangkok gas station
Staff at a NGV fill-up station in Ram Intra found three people unresponsive in a taxi early on Saturday morning.
Police were called and the three occupants of the cab – the driver and two passengers – were found to be already dead.
They were driver Katawut Jainoi, and Miss Janthima Ngambusakornsophon and Miss Rattana Denwiphaipana, both 33 years old.
Staff told police that the taxi had pulled into the station at 3am and it appeared the occupants were intending to sleep.
They were then seen again by car cleaning staff who arrived at 5am. At 8am they decided to rouse the driver and passengers but could get no response.
Khok Khram police were called and found them all already dead.
Initial reports suggest they had died from gas inhalation.
