The child told police that she was staying with her mother, Somnuek Tangsakul, during the holiday period.

She told officers that a large man who wore a black shirt came into their bedroom and punched her unconscious. When she woke up she saw that the bed was on fire, and her mother was tied up and dead.

She ran to get water to put out the fire and called her cousins for help, the girl continued.

After preliminary investigation, police suspected that the attacker had no intention to rob the victim and that he knew her personally, because he knew that she slept alone.

They also believed that the man lives in the area, and have begun tracking him down.
