The hunt is on in Uttaradit in northern Thailand for a Thai husband who shot his wife and four of her family in a shooting rampage at the weekend.
There were two crime scenes. The shooter is believed to be a man called Theeraphon, aged 37.
At one house in Phayamaen sub-district of Phichai district police found three people shot. They were Theeraphon’s mother in law and father in law Wirat and Nampheung. His wife Kanyarat was also shot dead there.
At a nearby house were both the elder sister and younger sister of Theeraphon’s mother in law – Nampha and Kanokwan. They too had been shot dead.
Acting police chief Pol Maj-Gen Payoo Thanasriseubwong ordered checkpoints to be set up in the area after Theeraphon fled in a white Toyota Camry. He is still believed to be in Phichai district.
Pratchaya told Sanook that the shooter had been living with Kanyarat for some considerable time. But recently there had been many arguments and divorce was in the air.
The husband was convinced of his wife’s infidelity but despite his jealousy there was no truth in it.
On this occasion he clearly “lost it” shooting the sisters first then moving onto the wife and her parents.Facebook.
