Sattahip, the 4th of April 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 8:00am on Sunday, police Captain Athorn Jitthin (Sattahip Police Investigator) was notified of a double homicide involving a Navy soldier at the rear of the Udomsak Village. Subsequently, police Colonel Somchai Sunthwanik (Sattahip Police Superintendent) along with a team of officers and members from both the Sattahip Hospital and Sawang Rodjanatham Foundation went to the scene to investigate.

At the scene officers were confronted with the deceased body of Warrant Officer Sommai Sanoesod [33] from the Air Combat & Land Maintain Unit of Sattahip Navy. Lying next to him was the dead body of Mr. Sanoesod’s wife, Mrs Aranya Sanoesod [33]. Both the deceased had died of a single gunshot wound to the right temple, whilst Mrs. Aranya had also sustained a gunshot wound to the right leg.

An investigation of the scene revealed the presence of a 9mm Beretta lying next to Mr. Sanoesod’s body in addition to three spent 9mm shell casings. Mrs. Aranya was also in possession of a bag of clothes and various other personal effects.

Suspecting that the double homicide may have been a murder suicide, committed by Mr. Sanoesod, police interrogated the couples neighbour Mrs. Buppha Janpum [33]. Mrs. Janpum revealed that she had been a close friend of Mrs. Aranya also explaining that Mr. Sanoesod had only just got back from his military assignment in Narathiwat, Deep Southern Thailand. Mrs. Janpum explained that Mr. Sanoesod had appeared very stressed and angry about his job and the fear of being killed, leaving his wife to become scared of him as he would often go into insane rages. It is thought that Mr. Sanoesud was suspicious that his wife had been unfaithful to him whilst he was away on his Navy service.

Mrs. Janpum stated to police that she had gone round to the couple’s home on the 2nd of April to see Mrs. Aranya who had called her earlier and informed of her husbands return, however; no one was home at the time, yet the front door was unlocked. She explained that she then went home and returned in the morning at which time there was still no one at home so she informed the local police. Later that day an unnamed witness found the two deceased bodies and reported them to police.

At present police speculate that Mr. Sanoesud may have been extremely stressed and suspicious that his wife was cheating on him, leading to the pair having an argument. It seems that on the night in question Mrs. Aranya attempted to leave her husband taking a bag of clothes and some personal belongs before trying to flee out the back of the village. Following his wife it is assumed that Mr. Sanoesud then shot her in the leg to stop her from escaping before murdering her and committing suicide himself.

Police have subsequently sent both bodies for autopsy to determine the cause of death, whilst all evidence from the scene has been collected for further examination.
