Lt Col Chalaew Taihu of the Phuket City Police was notified of the first incident at 4:50pm yesterday evening (Nov 20).

Phuket City Police Chief Col Kamol Osiri, Phuket City Police Deputy Chief Lt Col Chao Phomna and Lt Col Chalaew together with Kusoldham rescue workers and medical staff from Vachira Phuket Hospital arrived at a room on the fourth floor of the Panthep Condo Town on Mae Luan Rd in Phuket Town to find the body of Ms Anusara Musor, 30, lying on the floor surrounded by a pool of blood.

Stab wounds were found on Ms Anusara’s head and back and there were clear signs of a struggle inside the room.

Ms Anusara’s body was taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital.

While police were investigating the murder scene they received a report that a man had jumped from Rang Hill Viewpoint.

Police and rescue workers arrive at the scene to find two kitchen knives on the floor. Rescue workers found Piya Payae, 29, from Pattani about 25 metres down a tree-covered hill with scratches all over his body.

He was taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital for treatment.

Lt Col Chalaew said, “We were notified by a man, who claimed to be Ms Anusara's brother, that Piya attacked his sister before attacking him with a knife.

“Piya and Ms Anusara got married on April 19 2012 but they broke up about three months ago.

“Ms Anusara had a tea and roti shop near the condo and Piya still visited her. However, Piya realised that a foreign man would always came to Ms Anusara's shop and this made him jealous,” Lt Col Chalaew explained.

“Piya went to Ms Anusara’s room where they argued. Piya ended up killing Ms Anusara with the knives. He then went to an address on Soi Maelew in Phuket Town where he stabbed Ms Anusara’s brother,” he said.

“Piya then went to Rang Hill Viewpoint, about two kilometres from the condo, where he attempted to commit suicide but failed.

“We are continuing our investigation,” Lt Col Chalaew added.
