The drugs were three packets of crystal meth. 

The media said that the attack occurred at 2 am on December 1st, last weekend.

Joy, 50, is recovering in an isolation ward to prevent infection. She is expected to survive. She has burns to her face and body and injuries consistent with a violent attack. 

Capt Somchai Sae-jiw of the Bang Klam police confirmed that he had gone to the hospital at 8 am on the day in question but the victim had yet to give any statement because she was in isolation. He said four or five young local people were suspected of involvement and it was a drugs case.

He would say no more so Naew Na reporters went to the area of the shack where the victim lives. The locals were tight-lipped with some denying that anything had taken place. But the reporters found evidence of a fire. 

One person did appear to crack and give information. They said that at 2 am the victim was seen running from her shack. She ran for one kilometer and took refuge in the back of a pick-up truck. 

She was discovered moaning at 6am and taken to hospital. 

The reporters were told that the son of her husband was responsible and did it in retribution. Joy had found some “ice” in three packets and had destroyed it by burning. 

They said that she was a pitiable woman whose husband was in jail for drugs offences.
