The tranquility of Uthai Thani province was shattered yesterday as a domestic disagreement turned tragically fatal in an unfortunate showdown between a man and his stepson. The mortal duel occurred between a 58-year-old man and his 42-year-old stepson, terminating with the stepson lying lifeless on the floor of their shared residence. Both men were consumed by the heated haze of alcohol, leading to a deadly argument, and ultimately a horrifying gunshot.
An urgent alert reported to Lan Sak Police Station around 9.40pm, prompting a swift reaction of law enforcement officers and Uthai Thani’s courageous rescue volunteers to rush to the scene of the blood-chilling incident. The unfortunate event unfolded at the homestead with the number 64 in the serene Moo 5, Pradu Yuen, nestled in Lan Sak district. On arrival, Police found the man named Saneh Suwannason calmly awaiting his inevitable destiny – his arrest.
Upon entering the abode, the lifeless figure of Krisana Thongchan greeted them with a gunshot wound puncturing his left abdomen, observed Police Lieutenant Colonel Eakchalit Nhunpong, the dutiful officer at Lan Sak Police Station. “A haunting tableau of a life abruptly ended lay before us. Krisana’s lifeless body faced down with a mortal wound to his left abdomen, as an empty bottle of alcohol silently witnessed the tragedy.”
The grim news drew the deceased’s family members to the home where they exhibited palpable anger towards Saneh. Sensing the mounting tension, the police whisked Saneh away promptly to the Lan Sak Police Station for his protection. Saneh, surrendering to his fate, confessed to the hideous act. His weapon of choice was a locally-made firearm, specifically a .38 calibre gun which he used to fatally wound Krisana.
In the chilling confession, Saneh revealed his relationship with Krisana. He was the long-term partner of Krisana’s mother, serving as Krisana’s stepfather and raising him since childhood. “Our relationship, while mostly peaceful, had recently developed strain. Krisana’s insults and derogatory comments tested my patience. On this fateful day, we found ourselves home alone fueled with alcohol, leading to a fiery verbal exchange, and in a fit of uncontrollable rage, I shot him.”
