Police in Bangkok are on the hunt for a 37-year-old Thai man, who brutally murdered five family members including his pregnant wife and her parents on Monday night.
Authorities believe they are getting closer to catching Ranong native, Theerapol Pin-amorn, as the vehicle he allegedly used to escape was found parked outside the Maya Hotel in Phitsanulok province’s Muang Phitsanulok district at about 9:30am today.
The manhunt has been on since 8pm monday night, following the report of a multiple homicide at two houses in Phichai District, located in the northern province of Uttaradi.
In the garage of the first house, officials found the lifeless body of Theerapol’s wife Kanyarat Kingkaew, who was four months pregnant, and his 46-year-old father-in-law, Wirat Kingkaew, reported Khaosod.
Five kilometers away, in a second house, police found the bodies of the suspect’s 53-year-old cousin Kanokwan Intharasit and twin sisters Nampheung (the suspect’s mother-in-law) and Nampha Intharasit, both 48. All five victims were shot with a 9mm pistol, reported Sanook.
