Sangmanee Jaratfah, a famous witchdoctor, was found dead in Omkio. He died from gunshot wounds after sustaining 15 bullets to the anus.
Three suspects were arrested in connection to this insane murder: 26-year-old Somporn Ratcharoem, 40-year-old Athipan Ratcharoem and 39-year-old Tang-yu Ratcharoem.
These three are a family that frequented the witchdoctor, but have no had a petty argument with him.
They confessed to hiring a hit man to kill Jaratfah. Their hope was that his death would lift a ‘curse’ that he put on the family. They felt Jaratfah deserved to die as revenge for the current curse and past curses.
The reasoning behind this murder is that the father, Athipan, could not defecate. Instead of taking a laxative, they went to the witchdoctor, who demanded a lot of money to lift the “curse” that some of you might know as constipation.
The stunted mind of these individuals then grew bitter since they could not afford to pay to lift the father’s constipation, so they paid another man to shoot Jaratfah in the anus 15 times. Nice.
From Chianmai City Life:
According to the statement provided by Somporn, ten years ago his father was allegedly cursed and died soon after. Somporn and his family tried to find out who placed the curse on his father, but to no avail. Recently, Tang-yu look for help from the witchdoctor Sangmanee Jaratfah regarding complications with her husband Athipan being unable to defecate properly after a suspected curse. They contacted Sangmanee to lift the curse but he asked for 100,000 baht for the process. Tang-yu, Somporn and Athipan concluded that the witchdoctor must have been the one who cursed Somporn’s father ten years ago and decided to kill him in revenge. They pooled together three million baht to hire a gunman to kill the witchdoctor by shooting him in the anus, which would help lift the toilet-themed curse Athipan was suffering. Police are building a final case to be taken to prosecution.
