Bangkok man kills two sons and himself after separating from wife

A Bangkok kitchen assistant reportedly killed his two young sons with a knife after his wife and their mother left him and then took his own life.

Following the double homicide and suicide report in Pathumwan in Bangkok, police inspected a two-storey home in Soi Phra Jen 3 at about 9.30am Sunday, where they found the three bodies in a second-floor bedroom.

Natthawat Masri, 30, had a fatal stab wound to the heart, while his sons Pachthanan, 8, and Chotiwit, 7, also had stab wounds to the chest. Police found a long sharp-edge knife covered in blood near the bodies.

Police also found a note reportedly written by Natthawat, in which he said he was sorry for resorting to this.
