A bank manager and her two teenage children were found dead inside their home in Trang province at around 11.30am on Monday (August 17).

 

Police reported that the bodies of Sathida Tantararattanapong, 45, along with her 16-year-old son and 14-year-old daughter were found lying on a bed together.

 

The bank said the deceased had failed to show up at a scheduled meeting and after she could not be contacted, the bank officials called her husband Peerapat Tantararattanapong, who later told his sister-in-law to check the house.

 

However, when the sister-in-law could not get into the house, she called Peerapat who then broke in to find his wife and children lying dead in the bedroom.

The teenage son reportedly held a gun in his hand and his face was severely damaged, while the bodies of the mother and sister were covered by a blanket.

 

Police suspect the three may have had a fight, resulting in the son shooting his mother and sister, and then covering their bodies out of remorse before killing himself.

Slightly off topic.

You'd think a bank manager would have a better house.

Probably manager one of these small branches with 5 employees that are on every corner...?

 

Also there's parked Toyota Fortuner. Don't know about Bangkok, but up here in Issan it means living the dream. 😉

She was not the "bank official", by my reading of the article, could be wrong though.

The house may also have a humble exterior and then open onto designer splendour.

The Police just need to make sure that no one else was involved .

Would be an easy murder to set up , shoot two people and leave the third one with a gun in his hand .

Not saying that is what happened, the Police just need to make sure that that isnt what happened

where do children get gun from ??????  not from toy shop !!

you can imagine;
 

 

Wiki; There are more than six million registered guns in a country with a population of 66.7 million. Small Arms Survey estimates that the total number of guns, both licit and illicit, held by Thai civilians in 2017 is 10,300,000, equating to 15.1 firearms per 100 inhabitants.

Decades ago, before I came to live in Thailand, I was told over and over again in books and other literature how Thais never lost their temper, families were always so close etc.

And then I came to live in Thailand, and read every day of violence and disputes within families that often end in murder.

 

Information in guide books and other such publications have as much validity as TAT figures.

Are you a Thai person?

 

Because you see it, you must say something, you are unable to control yourself or your thoughts? But it's actually much more severe as you see it and then thought about it and then typed it. Poor poor individual. 

Said the man commenting on another 'op's' comment! Jack, I think you need to spend more time looking in a mirror?   😉

Indeed. I too was told repeatedly to never argue etc as Thai’s never argued, got angry, raised their voice or lost their temper - this was of course rubbish.

 

It didn’t take long to recognise that just like every other nationality Thai's also experience emotions and become overtly upset and angry, they sometime have difficulty controlling their anger with awful consequences. 

 

It didn’t take much longer to recognise the  ‘little prince syndrome’ as mothers swooned over their spoiled boy who could do no wrong, this resulted in young males without the emotional skills to handle disappointment and loss of face, at times with outrageous displays of temper, sometimes with awful consequences.

Tragedy, what was a 14 year old doing having access to a firearm?

 

The boy was 16. A gun in the house for protection does no good if 'the man of the house' at the time has no access. But then maybe no one else in the family knew there was a gun in the house.

The young man was still too young at 16 to emotionally handle whatever caused the problem for his alleged actions, The gun did not provide protection, it became a weapon used in possible murder/suicide.

Should a person of 16 be able to obtain a gun? IMO the answer is a simple no, even if it was in the house for "protection" 

Tragedy.

Yeah I agree ... police should look into this very carefully.

 

From the US numbers on suicide around 24% of the time the gun stays in the hand. The gun is more likely to stay in the hand if the person was sitting or laying down.

Did any of the neighbors hear anything unusual like a gun going off 3 times 🤔Rip

What does it matter if they did or didn't, it doesn't alter the fact that were shot, does it?
