Grannie: I never thought such a small knife could kill him - 70 year old woman explains murder

A story gripping the Thai public had further developments yesterday after a 70 year old grandmother stabbed a young security guard to death with a fruit paring knife.

 

Suphasorn died from a chest wound after Phayao, 70, went to get the knife from under her bike seat.

 

She said that the security guard started the trouble by hitting her with a stick that was not caught on tape.

 

Her husband Than, 73, tried to stop it all and was turned on before she went to get the knife.

 

She said that it was hard to believe that such a small , insignificant knife could kill anyone. 

 

The guard's employer said that he was a good worker and he knew nothing about claims he was a drinker. 

 

A worker's benevolent fund would help the family because he had died in the line of duty.

 

Than, the husband of Phayao, said that he had not been charged with anything yet. His wife has been charged with murder.

 

He is also a motorcycle taxi rider and had called his wife after a minor scrape outside a parking lot on the Thepparat Road in the Bang Plee area of Samut Prakan.

 

He said they had been married for more than 50 years and lived with 11 relatives. They have never caused any trouble to anyone.

 

He also alleged the security guard had instigated the trouble and that they had not blocked the entrance. 

 

Relatives of the dead guard said that he was a quiet man that kept himself to himself. He lived in Ekkamai and had been in his job for six months.

 

They said he had underlying health problems including an unspecified mental condition.

 

The violence was called totally unnecessary by the female driver who was involved in the original scrape.

 

Now an old grandmother with no criminal record is set to serve time for the murder of a young man.

Harmless old grannies can be very dangerous if provoked.

Always a harsh reminder for me to read about incidents such as this , so I remember to adapt my UK driving techniques accordingly.

surprising how small things can accelerate into

murder.

They both could just swallow their pride and walk away from the fight and no harm done to anyone, but it wasn't to be...

It's a great equaliser. This is why guys in prison don't always  respect the guy with the big muscles, they often respect the small guy with a bit of a rep. Read up on the Johnny Stompanato homicide - schoolgirl kills Mafiosa with a knife. It's also why so many Thais carry knives, being mostly skinny and of a smaller stature. I see a knife, I walk away, call me a coward if you like. For myself, I consider seeing the knife an advantage, if you don't see it you have real problems. Yeah, maybe if loved ones were at risk I'd chance it, knowing I'm going to get cut whatever, but for a wallet, no way. Size doesn't matter that much, you can slice a guy up the abdomen with an half-inch blade and see his guts fall out.

Her husband is a 73 year old motor bike taxi driver...................would YOU get on his bike? And he was 'turned on' before she got the knife?

73 year old taxi driver could drive motor bike better than you. Maybe.
