Police said Burmese maid shot herself in right side - but lawyer says she was left handed

A top lawyer has demanded that the case of a young Burmese maid found shot dead at her employer's house in Ratchaburi be reopened.

 

The police dismissed it as suicide but the evidence tells a different story, lawyer Ranarong Kaewphet told Daily New Online.

 

Now the family want justice after going to the embassy for help in the latest case of a Burmese person apparently not receiving justice.

 

Ranarong itemized three key points in the case after 17 year old Wan was found shot.

 

* She was shot in the right side and the gun was found in her right hand - but she was left handed.

 

* There were TWO shell casings found on the floor.

 

* The maid had managed to open her employer's gun safe to get the gun.

 

In addition Ranarong said that no proper procedure was done to forensically examine the corpse of the dead woman.

 

The police signed off on the case saying that it was suicide - probably because the victim was cross about her elder sister going back to Burma.

 

The lawyer dismisses this as nonsense.

 

Speaking ironically he added: "Didn't the police find it strange that a Burmese maid would know how to open the safe of her employer to get the gun?"

 

Now he plans to blow the case open after the mother and father of the victim went to the Burmese embassy in Thailand to appeal for justice.

 

He added: "These people come to work in our country legally but they are clearly not adequately protected under the law".

 

A meeting will be held tomorrow in which more details are expected to emerge.

I'm right handed but pretty sure I could pull a trigger with my left hand !! However, the lawyer is probably on the ball with this case... Good on him

For the cops it was simple math.  She was Burmese, ergo, suicide.

Did they do any gun powder residue checks on the owner, or even on her right hand ?

I believe it was simple math, but I suspect the math involved was a nice bung to the cops for reaching the somewhat dubious verdict.

Forensic basics to disprove she did not shoot herself, probably no samples taken at all to start off with.

I hope the lawyer looks after himself well, or he could accidentally fall into the Chao Praya river having attached two cement blocks to his feet after tying his own hands.

 It might start with a Glasgow smile, who knows?

You’re not implying they checked his hand, the Thai boss? Don’t be silly.
