Woman kills herself in front of online audience

Grieving relatives of the 24yearold woman, who hanged herself in front of an audience on the Camfrog chat website after fighting with her boyfriend on Sunday, yesterday urged youngsters to be careful and rational while using the Internet.

They said they couldn't understand why Nichakorn Srisawat, 24, would commit suicide because she was usually a cheerful person and had just returned from a trip to Holland. Nichakorn's body was collected from the Police General Hospital morgue.
The Nakhon Sawannative was found hanging in her rented flat in Paholyothin Soi 69 on Sunday afternoon, with the webcam adjusted so users of the Camfrog chat site could see her body reflected on a mirror. A member of staff told police that a man had called urging her to rescue a female tenant who was about to kill herself, but the door was locked. Nichakorn was dead by the time they forced the doo open.
The man was later identified as Teerawat Jeeraparpcharoen, 25, who had been dating the deceased for a month after they met on a Camfrog chat room. Teerawat told police that Nichakorn was hottempered and that they had previously fought after she said an exboyfriend was trying to win her back.
On Sunday, while they were chatting on the Camfrog website, they had another argument and he wanted to break up, he said, adding that Nichakorn said that if he left her she would have no reason to live. She then set up the webcam so he could watch her hang herself, he said, adding that he alerted the apartment staff but it was too late.
