PATHUM THANI: Three family members were found dead inside a car parked on a side road in Lam Luk Ka district. A warm charcoal stove was in the vehicle.

The black Toyota car, with its engine running, was parked on Soi Boonyalak in tambon Bueng Kham Pgroi when police arrived at the scene at about 4pm on Tuesday, said Pol Capt Kriangsak Phaengdee, deputy investigation chief at Lam Luk Ka police station. 

Three people, including a young girl, were seen inside the locked car. Police called a locksmith to open one of the doors. A man, identified later as Surachet Ninkhot, 36, of Nonthaburi, was in the driver’s seat. 

A woman, identified later as Natnicha Ninkhot, 33, and a girl Fasai, aged around 4-7, were found dead in the back seat. The pair were hugging each other, police said. 

A warm charcoal stove was also found on the back seat. There were no traces of a struggle. Doctors said the three people had died at least six hours before the bodies were discovered.

Mrs Lamai Arsasee, 55, assistant village head of Moo 14 village, told police that a local resident alerted her on Tuesday that the car had been parked along the soi since Monday night. She and her husband then came to check and found the car engine was still running with three people inside. She then alerted police to investigate.

Pol Col Jakkaew Kaewsaengyot, chief of Lam Luk Ka police station, said the three dead people were members of the same family, and police had contacted other family members to gather more information. The bodies were sent to HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn Medical Center’s forensic institute for a post-mortem examination.
