Electrician hangs self after family argument


A Nong Plalai man hung himself in an apparent suicide after arguing with his father.

The body of Saengsuri Pra­yoonkong, 24, was found Aug. 4 in the bushes off Highway 7.

Relative Manote Khampuang, 19, told police he and Saengsuri were working as electricians around Pattaya, but that his friend was behaving oddly earlier that day. Saengsuri said he’d had an argument with his father on the phone.

Later that night they were drinking in their apartment when Saengsuri claimed a customer had asked him to do a wiring job. He picked up tools and left, not to be seen alive again.
