The beauty shop, which also sells beauty products, is located on the first floor of a 3-story building. At the scene, many local people were standing around and watching.

In the bedroom on mezzanine floor, police found the body of Ms. Wimol Techaban, age 46, the owner of the shop, from Tambon Wattananakorn, Amphur Wattananakorn, Sakaew province.

She was lying on her back on the floor. She wore a violet T-shirt and a skirt nightgown that was opened to her belly. Police found evidence that she had been forcibly raped, and had bled a lot. Her neck had green bruises, indicating that she had been strangled. Police estimated that she had been dead between 4 to 5 hours.

The victim’s purse was missing, and police searching the bedroom found a 1 knit wool hat and a pack of LM brand cigarettes, which might have belonged to the rapist murderer.

At the back door of house, police also found a tool to pry open doors, which they kept for evidence. The police evidence officers dusted for the fingerprints, and also collected hairs and semen samples on the victim to inspect for DNA as evidence to arrest the suspect.

Police questioned Mrs. Wanna Phoomkaew, age 47, the maid of K.S. Manufactory Co., located close to the beauty shop.

She told police that Ms. Wimol didn’t have a husband or family, and she lived at the shop alone. Mrs. Wanna said she had not seen Ms. Wimol open her shop yet. So she shouted to ask her whether Ms. Wimol wanted to eat some food or not, because Ms. Wimol always let her buy food for her.

But there was no reply, even after she called out to Ms. Wimol for a long time. So she informed Ms. Wimol’s relatives, who walked to the back of the shop, and found that the door was open. So they walked to the bedroom on the mezzanine floor, and found the body of Ms. Wimol.

Pol. Maj. Gen. Katcha Thartsart revealed that the murderer may be a nearby construction worker or laborer. He might have broken into the victim’s bedroom in the morning by climbing across the roof deck of the nearby building, then levered open the door to steal property. But Ms. Wimol woke up to see the thief, so he raped her and then strangled her.

The police general commanded the detective police team to follow up to arrest the suspect, because the murder was a serious offense that made people frightened.
