Police and rescue medics called to Bang Na Trat Soi 4 (Soi Isaraniwet) found a 28 year old man dead from a gunshot wound to the head in the front of a Toyota Vios car.
The car was souped up and had stickers indicating “Vios Racing Thailand”.
The dead man was Anuwat Noowan dressed in shirt and jeans. He was slumped from the drivers side to the passenger side and was lying on a gun.
Witness Kittipong Saengchai, 44, said he was driving a van on his way home down the soi. The Vios collided with the front of his van.
Then 22 year old Natchanok Noothong jumped out of the driver’s side of the Vios and ran up to him in a panic saying:
“The man in the car has got a gun.”
He went with her to the Vios and found the man dead and called the police.
Natchanok – a trainee nursing assistant at Kluay Nam Thai Hospital – said that the dead man was her boyfriend who often forced her to sleep with him. On this occasion he hit her in the eye, she said.
She said that he forced her into his car. She saw that he had a gun on the back seat and she leaned over and got it and shot him in the head.
She then leaned over his dead body to unhitch the boot where she had her personal belongings.
She then claimed she exited the vehicle from the driver’s side after clambouring over her boyfriend’s dead body.
Police are to look into these claims as the investigation continues.
