Pattaya police and Sawang Boriboon volunteers tended a murder scene at a residence in Soi Wat Boonkanjanaram 5 in Jomtien.
They found the dead body of a 27 year old woman lying naked on the floor in pool of blood.
Neighbors surround the site of the murder and hanging.
She had been stabbed repeatedly and lying next to her body was the 2 foot long murder weapon.
In a room about 50 meters away the police found another body this time it was a 32 year old Burmese man who had hung himself.
A witness said that the man and woman were in fact a couple who had lived together for 10 years.
He stated that he heard them having an argument and he tried to intervene and the man lashed out at him, cutting his hand in the process.
The dead woman’s relatives said the couple were having some issues and had decided to live separately for a while, as they were both found to be naked the police surmised that they had had intercourse and then got into another argument at which the man had attacked his partner before taking his own life.
