BANGKOK (dpa) – Five people were found dead in a New Year’s Eve murder-suicide in Bangkok, Thai police said Thursday.
The bodies of a 64-year-old man and his two children were found hanged. The bodies of his mother and his sister were on the bed, with no confirmed cause of death, according to local media.
Police found no signs of forced entry or struggle. An apparent suicide note written by the father quoted financial problems, daily newspaper Thai Rath reported.
According to his landlord, who discovered the bodies, the family planned to move out of their rental home in western Bangkok on New Year’s day, the reports said.
The bodies were transferred to a forensics centre to confirm the cause of death.
