Udon Thani Woman Arrested For Allegedly Murdering 70-Year-Old Austrian Boyfriend

Recommended Posts

Maybe one of our more fluent Thai readers can translate additional information in the Thairath article. There appears to be mention of a German farang involved in the womans life as well as her Austrian husband.

It says the police interviewers discovered from her that she had another german husband who also came to visit once a year for six months - whilst the late husband visited for the other 6 months of the year. She alleged that she couldn't have any intimate relations with the deceased due to his many health problems

she sounds like a piece of work if the witness statements are true... I wonder if he was in sound mind to put up with it....

All too common of a problem in Thai society but the white knights protecting female virtue are abundant as they are in the west. People just laugh at men who have to deal with domestic violence and just blow it off as something that is wholly fixable when a man is in that situation. It's not necessarily about being of sound mind all the time as it is not having a way out. Abusers tend to be sociopaths as well or having some kind of personality disorder and will dominate a person's life, and unfortunately Thai society nurtures these behaviors as normal. In normal Thai's its genuine and loving and they respect their partners boundaries, but the sociopaths don't, and since the behavior is so in line with Thai society it's hard for anyone, let alone men or women to see the truly vulgar behavior for what it is unless they are an eyewitness. First hand accounts are not enough in this society, and sociopaths are normally smart enough to put their behavior in check when in public.

Chawiangwan Sriratchana, 44 murdering 70-year-old Austrian man.

well, when that girl was 18 years old wub.png he was allready an 44 old man cowboy.gif ,perhaps a nice looking person, but in my modest opinion thats a big mistake, that many ,many but many people do, getting married with young girls,with no education, most of them comming directly from farms, bar or street girls etc etc ! one day or another with such a difference, they must have problems post-4641-1156694005.gif and 99,99% of the time,after the language frontier, the way of leaving.... it is money..and again .money for them or for their family needs ! thats also why so many foreigners separated or have so many problems after sometimes of leaving good together.i ear it from friends everyday! fortunetly for me i worked on it at the biggining ,long time ago and i am not concerned.

anyway divorce is a better solution, murdering beatdeadhorse.gif another but don't get caught !

this time,this woman hasen't been clever enough.so welcome to life thai prison.enjoy your country free services.bah.gif

Sounds like he could have been a battered-husband unable or too scared to escape his beating partner?

And they often argued about……..the stolen money from his safety box, by her thai daughter. Appearenly her daughter seemed to routinely steal the key to the box, not just once. This is a grown up daugther, already married and living nearby.

according to the article

Why is it that people feel the need to make pronouncements on something about which they know absolutely nothing.....and apparently do not have the intelligence to interpret a simple Thai media report without making huge assumptions.......it doesn't help anyone but makes themselves look downright ignorant.

Without these members there would be a much reduced content on TV

How sad. RIP to the Austrian.

I know many people of different nationalities who have divorced their Thai wives. In every instance it was because large sums of money were spent, overtime, without the husband understanding where it went. Their wives could not explain it adequately and usually the discussion ended in a row with the wives screeching "you farang, no understand" etc etc. These wives were not all ex bar girls. Some were well educated and had businesses or professional careers before marriage.

Money seems to lead to huge issues here and these Thai wives all reacted very quickly and badly when challenged. It seems from the OP that this lady was prone to use violence.

Money leads to huge issues in relationships everywhere, not just Thailand.

Being an old man I have three rules to follow:

1) Never gamble with money you cannot lose.

2) Never give what you cannot afford or not prepared to walk away from.

3) Never get legally married in Thailand. You both can be happy without the noose around your neck.

And I always follow these rules now. coffee1.gif

Wish I had them beforecheesy.gif

Whatever people say, she is innocent, until proven guilty.

Well that's not quite right. She can still be guilty without being proven guilty.

I believe it is 'presumed' innocent.

Sorry, just wanted to post that to jump on the nitpicking bandwagon. smile.png

ABCer, can I ask what your issue with point number 3: getting married (specifically in Thailand) is?

I am looking at this situation at the moment, and feel it may be safer than in my home country. Laws here allow my girlfriend to take 50% of everything I own if we marry here, even if she contributed nothing and I paid an allowance (which I do not), in the case of things going sour. The law here is very skewed to assist those who are financially weaker. In our case currently, it is her. I care for her very much but am a dooms day planner.. this way whatever happens which is better than the worst case is always a bright patch for me.

I'm 64, my wife is 54. Been married 5 years. From the start I let her know I was marrying her, NOT her family. Fortunately, her family is relatively small, and all have good jobs, so no problem there. Later we did start to have to issues, as I found out she's an obsessive/compulsive pack rat. We've had some major blow out's over that. But to insure my "safety" and "longevity", I sat her down and used an Excel spread sheet and showed her EXACTLY what would happen if I die, and that I'm worth a hell of a lot more to her alive than dead. She's not stupid when it comes to money, and works for Siam Life Insurance as one of their reps, so when I broke it down in simple math for her, it got the message across loud and clear. Alive, you get to keep nice house, new car, motorbikes, etc. Dead, you lose everything within 2-3 months.
