A Thai man confessed to police that he murdered a woman he was on a first date with out of anger, after she let out a complaint that he “sucked at sex” during their coupling — at least in his version of the story.
In a press conference on Sunday, police in southern Songkhla province announced the arrest of Natthan Raknui, 23, for the murder of a woman named Jiraporn Theppaya, 22, who was found dead on a rubber plantation near Prawk Suwan Canal.
According to police, Natthan started talking to the victim on Facebook in July. After two weeks of a long-distance courtship, he rode two hours in a public van from Phatthalung province to meet up with Jiraporn in Songkhla on Aug. 12.
As Natthan could not afford to rent a hotel room, they rode on Jiraporn’s motorbike together to the rubber plantation to have sex, which matched the CCTV footage police have of them on a motorbike, Manager reported.
Natthan told police that he slit the victim’s throat after she complained about his sex skills. After that, he escaped on her motorbike, which he later sold for THB7,000.
Jiraporn’s body was discovered on Aug. 15 after police learned about their meeting from the victim’s chat records and obtained CCTV footage of her and Natthan, Matichon reported.
The suspect was later arrested near Pabon Reservoir in Phatthalung, where he often checked in on Facebook.
The man who “sucked at sex” was charged for murder and theft.
