 “Em”, 18, told the media that while she was washing up last Wednesday at her boyfriend’s house she heard the sound of a gun and something hit the doorframe and ricocheted into a cabinet. She found an airgun pellet on a washing machine. Then next day while she was out the back of the house in Chumphonburi, Surin, she felt a pain in her neck. There was blood and she initially thought she had been stung by an insect. A neighbor heard another shot at that time. Em ran into the house where her boyfriend’s mother thought she had been shot. Doctors at a hospital in Buriram confirmed that a pellet was embedded in her neck. They would not remove it as it was dangerously near an artery. They would wait until it moved nearer the surface of the skin.

Meanwhile the father of the victim – Preecha, 50 – contacted Pol Capt Theerawat Khamnin of the Chumphonburi police to admit what he had done. He is now being held in custody after he was arrested. Em said she forgives him but wants the case to run its course. Sanook reported that the father was angry that his daughter defied him and went to live at the house of her boyfriend. On two previous occasions the police and the phu yai ban ( a village elder) had got involved after he threatened to kill her.
