In an astounding turn of events, DNA testing has conclusively linked a 46-year-old man, Songsak Songsaeng, currently in custody on charges of killing his two-year-old daughter, to the deaths of two infants found in 2013 and 2014 in the Bang Sue district. Validation of matching DNA samples from the bodies of the killed children, Songsak and a previous spouse, Jessada Meepian, demonstrate the shared lineage.
Songsak is presently detained along with his current wife, 40 years old Sunan Nahuanin. The allegations against them revolve around their involvement in the tragic death of their daughter. As the investigation progressed and Songsak was interrogated, he astonishingly admitted to the horrific truth of murdering four sons, all of whom were born to Jessada, one of his three prior wives.
The Head of the Forensics division, Wathee Assawutmangkul, reportedly announced the successful DNA match between the samples extracted from Songsak, Jessada, and the deceased infants. An initial discovery in 2013 had led to an approximate 10-month-old infant, followed by the unearthing of a barely one month old infant in 2014. These chilling findings led to extracting DNA samples for identification leads.
Wathee has additionally disclosed information regarding expected DNA results from bone fragments found near Soi Phahonyothin 56 located in Bangkok’s Sai Mai district this recent week. The anticipation is high as the results are slated for release in the coming week.
With the mounting evidence, Jessada finds herself facing charges related to concealing the bodies. As divulged by Teeradet Thammasuthee, the head of the Investigation Division of the Metropolitan Police Bureau, Songsak’s criminal indictment is set to escalate from causing deadly harm to active involvement in the murders depending upon the results from the examined bone fragments.
Furthermore, the police are weighing the possibility of imposing human trafficking charges onto Songsak, as he is suspected of sharing pictures of his injured daughter in a despicable attempt to extort donations.
The couple’s arrest comes on the heels of a request for police intervention made by a conscientious social media influencer. This person had been alerted about two girls apparently suffering abuse at the hands of their father, according to reports from Bangkok Post. This yet again underscores the importance of citizens stepping up to help law enforcement keep communities safe.
