She had been shot twice in the back and once in the right chest and was dead at the scene. She was found by a passing motorist who stopped after seeing the car parked suspiciously by the side of the road.

Thaworn Khaosa-art of the of the Pathum Thani police said that she was likely shot by someone known to her who was travelling with her in the car.

He said that the victim had left work at 4.30pm and was travelling home. She lives six kilometers from her office at the municipality.

Thaworn said that police are working on the theory that she was killed by a love interest – he said that she was an attractive woman with many men interested in her.

She was well liked at work so that is unlikely to be the reason for conflict. But she also ran a second hand car dealership that may be part of the reason for her death, he added.

CCTV is being studied to try to find out where her assailant went after leaving the car.

The body was sent for autopsy as the hunt began.
