Revenge killing of son-in-law

 

A 40 year old Thai father is being sought by police in Nakhon Sri Thammarat after he shot his common law son-in-law as he rested in a hammock. 

 

The victim was shot in front of his pregnant wife, the daughter of the shooter.

 

The incident was in revenge for a loss of face caused by the son-in-law who refused to go through with a planned wedding three years ago. 

 

The couple then compounded the father's anger by eloping. 

 

Thung Yai police were called to the village of Ban Klong Phiang where they found 34 year old Sarawut dead in a hammock in front of a TV. He had been shot in the chest and also had a wound to the head. 

 

Two women at the scene had fainted - they were Noonai, 40, and Monthip, 25, the wife of the victim. 

 

Rescue services took them to Thung Yai hospital. Later when she had recovered Monthip told police what had led up to the shooting and what happened at the house. She said her father, Narong, 42, was the shooter.

 

Police said that three years ago Monthip and Sarawut planned to get married. He father had sent out lots of invitations and a big feast was planned to celebrate the nuptials. 

 

But the prospective son-in-law didn't show up on the day of the wedding and some time after the couple eloped. They had had a child - now six months old - and Monthip was pregnant with another. 

 

They had gone to live in Sarawut's home district but after an argument Monthip had gone home to her parents. Her husband then went there to attempt a reconciliation - but her father had not forgotten the loss of face from three years prior. 

 

While Sarawut was in a hammock talking to his wife he went and lifted up his feet causing him to lose balance and his feet hit his daughter. 

 

Narong had a gun and pistol whipped his son-in-law around the head before firing at his chest. He fled the house.

 

Monthip ran out of the house to seek help from neighbors but none would intervene saying that they should wait for rescue services to arrive. 

 

They were too late to save Sarawut. 

 

Police have contacted the relatives of Narong to get him to give up but he remains on the run. They have applied for a warrant for his arrest.

so he must have been about 14 when he got the mother pregnant then ?

 

Seems silliness and sex runs strong in this family

I often wonder how different this country would be if they could do away with the stupidity known as "face."

Tragic how so many relatives end up shooting each other or chopping each other up over relatively minor perceived issues, which most westerners would just brush off and move along.

It might simply be replaced with the western equivalent, which in this case could be called "shame".

They revised his age further down the story to 42 years of age, not that it makes much difference to the victim!

One thing I discover about losing of face is pride, now that u killed ur son in law 🚔 🚨 what did u lose? The 👮 will look for you. U can run but u can not hide.

The answer is simple: Education. There is I feel another contributing factor and that is for the poor nothing to lose and for the rich a feeling of above the law "money". In the village I lived in out of 8 or so murders only two kids went to prison (how long I don't know) the rest paid death money to the family and the police.

He should have looked at it from a different perspective,

all the money he would have saved not having the wedding,

but he was still suffering loss of face 3 years later,just get over it.

Now he's on the run.

Didn't the man pay for his daughters wedding and the groom didn't show up for it, did a no-show on her wedding day. Not much money was saved and a lot of face was lost.

Not only loss of face but this father can't seem to understand because he is Thai himself that the kid was actually doing him a favor, why spend all that money if they open their eyes and accept the truth about their culture whether they got married or not and went through the original ceremony the kid would still be a bum the ceremony isn't going to change who he is!  If the father didn't shoot him the way things were going he would have taken off 6 months tops.
