Man films killing of daughter, posts video on Facebook and commits suicide

A Thai man, Wuttisan Wongtalay, filmed himself killing his 11-month-old daughter in two video clips and posted them on Facebook before committing suicide, police said on Tuesday.

The videos were on the man’s Facebook page for up to 24 hours until they were taken down around 5pm in Bangkok on Tuesday

The video showed Wongtalay tying a rope to his daughter’s neck before dropping her from the rooftop of a deserted building in the Thai seaside town of Phuket.

Wuttisan’s suicide was not broadcast but his lifeless body was found beside his daughter, said Jullaus Suvannin, the police officer in charge of the case.

“He was having paranoia about his wife leaving him and not loving him,” Jullaus told Reuters.
