Thai TV actor Toy Thanapat was recently arrested for allegedly stabbing his girlfriend, Chatsaran Suwannakit, over 20 times, which lead to her tragic death.
Earlier, Thai news outlets reported that Chatsaran’s body was found at the residence that the couple lived together located in Khlong Samhwa district in Bangkok on Friday (6th August).
According to Astro Gempak, it was later revealed that Toy had killed his 25-year-old partner due to jealousy. After the horrific incident took place, media reports stated that he was in a panic state. Additionally, a five inch long knife, which was covered in blood, was also discovered inside the two-storey townhouse.
Toy – also known as Toy Toy among his fans – revealed during the initial questioning that he and his girlfriend were drinking beer on the first floor of the house a day before the incident. The 21-year-old recalled that after they went upstairs, they quarrelled about his job as an actor.
During the altercation, the victim reportedly told the suspect to pack his belongings and leave the house. The “Watching It In Sendai” host also said that she continued to angrily berate and insult him while he was packing his stuff.
Toy then claimed that the victim went to the kitchen and returned with a knife in her hand. Due to fear that Chatsaran would hurt herself or would do something worse, Toy said that he fought with her over possession of the knife. During the struggle, he said that Chatsaran stabbed herself several times.
However, after further investigation, Toy finally confessed to stabbing his girlfriend to death in a blind rage. Concurrently, it has been reported that the deceased girlfriend of the “Why R U” actor had previously admitted to having been diagnosed with bipolar disorder for more than two years.
Chatsaran previously went public about her illness via a post on her Facebook account, accompanied with photos of her self-harm injuries. Apart from that, she was also said to develop bipolar disorder after being frequently abused physically by her former lovers from “the past and present”.
