A family of three was found dead at their home in the northernmost province of Chiang Rai this morning.

With no suspects, no motive, no obvious causes of death and no apparent weapons, investigators Monday were trying to explain the mysterious deaths of Udom Kimsee, 57, Natcha Kimsee, 51, and Sawaros Kimsee, 26, whose bodies, according to Khaosod, were found in Chiang Rai city at about 9am.

Udom, a local administrator in the city’s Ban Due subdistrict, was found in a hallway near the entrance. Natcha was in the main bedroom, where a window had been broken while their daughter, Sawaros, was found in an adjacent bedroom. Police believe all died on the same day.

Due to the condition of the bodies, police believe the three had been dead since Thursday.

Attempts to reach the investigating officers and the national police spokesman by phone Monday afternoon were unsuccessful.

There were no obvious suspects nor could clear causes of death be established given the bodies’ advanced states of decomposition. They have been sent to Chiang Rai Prachanukroh Hospital for autopsy. No possible weapons were found in the house. 

On Thursday night, neighbors said they heard several loud bangs that sounded like gunshots but didn’t think it was anything serious. Police believe that whatever happened, happened that night. 

After Udom did not show up to work, a cousin went to visit this morning, which is how the bodies were discovered, Workpoint reported. 

As the investigation continues, police said they have not concluded yet if it involved murder, suicide, or some combination thereof.

An unidentified relative of the family cast suspicion on a new boyfriend of Sawaros’, who police were seeking for questioning.
