Mother kills children
Praiwan Saelee, who came from Hat Yai in Songkhla province, was last Friday found dead after burning charcoal in a Samut Prakan apartment room. His family have told police that his problems began in January last year when he sought a Bt140,000 loan through a money lender in Bangkok’s Lat Phrao district so he could expand his mobile phone business. In order to secure the loan he gave the man his four-year-old Mazda pick-up truck worth about Bt1 million as collateral and said he’d repay the money within a month. In fact two weeks later, according to his mother in law, Praiwan won Bt200,000 in the lottery and tried to contact the money lender to repay the loan and get back his truck. There was no answer on the phone number he had, however, and the truck has never been seen again. When Praiwan reported the truck as stolen with Chokchai police in Bangkok, he was allegedly instructed to pay a Bt5,000 investigation fee but the probe got nowhere, resulting in stress and … [Read more...] about Distressed man appeals to PM, kills himself

GEORGE TOWN: Police are tracking down a 42-year-old mother who allegedly abused her three children aged two, seven and 11 years old at their UDA transit home, Tanjung Tokong, here recently. Timur Laut OCPD ACP Che Zaimani Che Awang said the case came to light after the maternal grandmother lodged a police report on April 16, and the police have since been actively looking for the suspect. Besides enduring beatings from their mother, who works as food shop assistant, the children - two girls and one boy - were also not allowed to go to school this year.

By Audra D. S. Burch The New York Times Tues., April 30, 2019 ATLANTA—On the fifth floor of the Atlanta Police Department headquarters, more than a dozen investigative files of dead children are neatly spread across three tables. A handwritten list, scribbled in red ink, provides the names of some of the children who were killed. The years of each killing — 1979, 1980 and 1981 — are taped on three walls, along with grainy photos of the children, almost all of them smiling. Old homicide logs are stacked on another table. Inside the pages, among the details is the story of the Atlanta child killings, one of the most vexing cases in the city’s history. Forty years ago, Atlanta was terrorized by a serial killer who snatched and killed two dozen children, aged 7 to 17. They vanished with spine-chilling regularity, only to have their bodies discovered weeks or months later. In rivers. Under a bridge. Behind dumpsters. The menacing drumbeat of child … [Read more...] about Who killed Atlanta’s children?
