Couple shot dead in Phatthalung . Daughter says she heard the motorcycles but no gunshots

A husband and wife were shot dead in their home in Kong Ra district of Phatthalung province and a neighbour was injured in what police suspected was a personal conflict.

The murder of the couple, Arong Srisongkram and Payao Somkeowan, was reported to Kong Ra police by their 15-year-old daughter last night.

The girl told police that four friends of her father visited the home on Friday night and had conversations until 1 am this morning (March 31).

She came out from her bedroom after hearing his friends drove off in motorcycles and found her father lying  dead half naked in the kitchen and her mother at the bedroom door.

A neighbour Aree Rodnual was shot in the arm.

Police found no cartridge cases or fighting traces in the house except a long shotgun in the living room. But the loaded gun was not used.

Police said it was possible that the murderer or murderers might collect cartridge casings on the floor to destroy evidence implicating them. – ThaipBS
