A 38-year-old woman identified as Pilaiwan Khamdee, who had throat cancer and other illnesses, shot her husband in the head and then killed herself at their house in Thailand.
According to the neighbours, the woman was stressed by her illness and her husband was popular and good looking, and this may have fuelled her actions.
Pilaiwan Khamdee was found dead on her bed, her husband, Montri Kimaphan, 42, was also lying, bleeding on the bed. He had been shot in the forehead. A .38 pistol was on the bed and there was a bullet hole in a glass window.
The grievously injured man was rushed to Phutthasothon Hospital. The couple’s eldest son, aged 20, told police he heard three gunshots in his mother’s bedroom. He rushed to the room and found both his parents bleeding on the bed, and called for help.
He later learned that his mother had left a farewell letter to him and his 18-year-old brother, who lived in another house with his girlfriend.
