Young mother charged with murder after pushing her son in the klong

A 21 year old Samut Prakarn woman has been charged with murder by police after she admitted pushing her two year old son into a canal in Bang Bua Thong yesterday.

Bang Bua Thong police were called when little “James” was found floating in the Ton Nun Klong. He had been dead about three hours.

CCTV was studied in two spots in the area where firstly a woman dressed in an orange top has been seen leading the child. Later CCTV in another location showed the same woman walking alone.

Police made inquiries and found the woman who had since changed clothes waiting to catch a bus home.

She was 21 year old “Porn”. All names were assumed to protect identities.

Police interviewed Porn and discovered that she is a finance company employee from Samut Prakarn. She had split up with the boy’s father a long time ago.

She had paid her mother to look after the boy but there had been problems and she had often had to take him to work with her.

In the end family stress drove her to take the boy, aged just 2 years and two months to the klong and push him in, reported Thai Rath. She had been to the area and taken the boy on a motorcycle taxi to near the scene of the crime.

After that she had gone and changed her clothes at a friend’s house. She was about to take a bus back home when she was arrested.

She has been charged with murder with intent. – Thai Rath
