Friday I blog about a feature of crime writing, publishing,
cultural, language, and newsworthy events.
Control & Crime
unrelated Thailand crime stories shared a common theme
this week—impulsive, violent behavior. In one
case, a sixty-two year old mother confessed to the police
that she had shot he daughter dead with a .38cal handgun.
The killing occurred in the bedroom of the family house,
and was, according to the mother, caused by her sudden
anger over her daughter’s outstanding debts totaling
a million and a half baht. According to the Thai press
reports, after killing her daughter, the mother said
that she turned the gun on herself, fired but missed.
