Two dead following murder/suicide in Tha Sala

Two people are dead after a man shot a woman then killed himself in Tambon Tha Sala, Mueang Chiang Mai yesterday.

The body of Mr. Kasem Chan Sae, 68 was discovered by Region 5 and Mae Ping police lying face down in a room in the house in Moo 2 with a gunshot wound to his head. In another room, police found the body of Mrs. Nathaporn Valeewan, 52 and originally from Nan, sitting dead in a chair, also with a gunshot wound.

Mr. Saw is described as being a widower with Mrs. Valeewan living in the house.

Police say both parties may have agreed to the murder/suicide as there was no indication from neighbors of any personal disputes or arguments, noting that both were suffering from unspecified personal issues.

The bodies of both have been taken to Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital for an autopsy before being reunited with family members for a funeral service.
