Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Drunk Groom Kills Bride and Three Others at Wedding Reception

In a shocking incident, a drunk bridegroom shot dead his bride and three others at their wedding reception before turning the gun on himself. The tragic incident took place in Nakhon Ratchasima province on Saturday night. The groom, identified as Jaturong Suksuk, was an Asean Para Games medalist and had participated in the 11th Asean Para Games in Indonesia last year, winning a silver in swimming. He had also qualified to take part in the 2023 World Ability Sport Games in Nakhon Ratchasima.

According to Pol. Col. Rungroj Tang-amnuay, chief of Wang Nam Khiao Police Station, the shooting occurred at a house in Baan Sarn Chao Pho village in Tambon Wang Nam Khiao. The groom, who had lost his right leg in an accident years ago, had insecurities and distrust towards his bride. Witnesses stated that the couple got into a heated exchange during the wedding reception, which was apparently triggered by the groom’s fears that his disability would lead his bride to turn to another man.

As the argument escalated, the groom toppled the dining table, causing the bride, her mother, and sister, as well as nearby guests, to walk away. However, the groom retrieved a 9mm pistol from his car and opened fire on his bride, her mother, and sister. Two guests were also injured by stray bullets and rushed to the hospital, but one of them, Thong Nonkhunthod, sadly succumbed to his injuries.

The tragic incident has sent shockwaves through the community and has once again raised concerns about gun violence. It serves as a reminder of the devastating consequences that can result from unresolved personal issues and emotional instability.

Authorities are currently investigating the case further to understand the full circumstances surrounding the shooting. The community is mourning the loss of the four victims and offering support to their grieving families. This incident serves as a tragic reminder of the importance of addressing mental health issues and providing support to individuals who may be struggling with their emotions.
