30 Year Old Government Worker Found Murdered in Car Parked for 3 Days on Surat Thani Roadside

She was found with 3 gunshot wounds to the abdomen.

The crime scene and the Toyota Yaris.

When: December 20th, 2020

Where: Phunphin district, Surat Thani province

Perpetrators: Unknown

Victims: Ms. Thitirat Sirat, 30

What: Surat Thani police are investigating the circumstances around the death of Ms. Thitirat Sirat, 30. She is described as having good looks and white skin, and she worked as a professional administrative officer for the Office of the Permanent Secretary at her hometown in Chaiyaphum province.

She was found in her Toyota Yaris, which was parked on the roadside for three days before her body was discovered. Her abdomen had three gunshot wounds. Her face was swollen and cyanosis, a blush discoloration due to low oxygen levels in the blood, was described on the edge of her right eye. Her hand bag was still in the vehicle. She was taken to Phunphin hospital for a detailed autopsy.

Ms. Thitirat was found after a citizen drove by and noticed the car parked on the roadside for three days, which seemed abnormal. The citizen called the police to investigate. Authorities have contacted the family, who said Ms. Thitirat traveled south to find her friend, but they didn’t know much else at the time of this report.

My take: The majority of homicides are perpetrated by someone who knows the victim. We can’t jump to such a conclusion on this case, but it’s odd that a young woman was murdered presumably with a firearm when visiting a friend. It’s also odd that she was found on the side of the road in her own vehicle, which indicates that whoever killed her had access to the vehicle.

It could have been a mugging gone wrong, of course. Or a stranger who just decided to murder her at random. But there was no mention of her clothes being ripped off or her valuables being stolen. We’re putting our bets on the option that the perpetrator was known to the victim.

We will update this case as reports come in.
