Chiang Mai father shoots himself dead at same spot son committed suicide

A grieving father was found dead in front of his house in Chiang Mai's Mae Wang district early on Saturday in an apparent suicide at the same spot where his son killed himself last year, police said.

 

Pol Lt Col Natthapol Jaikantha, deputy commander of the Mae Wang police station, said Chankaew Sopha, 57, killed himself with a homemade sawn-off shotgun while lying on a mat in front of his house in Moo 6 village in Tambon Mae Win.

 

Natthapol said the shotgun was still in his hand and he shot himself in the mouth.

 

A suicide note was found nearby, saying he had attempted to kill himself nine times previously and this time he was confident he would be successful. The suicide note said Chankaew wanted to join his son in the next life.

 

His neighbours told police that they saw Chankaew lying on a mat in front of his house before they heard a gunshot. They came out to check and found Chankaew dead.

 

Neighbours said the man became depressed after his son committed suicide at the same spot in the middle of last year.
