MUANG SAMUTPRAKARN, Thailand ó
A woman in Thailand decided to end her life in a horrible, public way, by jumping into a crocodile enclosure.
Police say the 65-year-old womanís family told them she had seemed depressed.
But they didnít expect her to walk into the reptile farm remove her shoes and jump into the pit filled with several hundred crocs.
Thai police say staff at the Samut Prakarn Crocodile Farm and Zoo used sticks to try to keep the animals at bay but to no avail.
The Bangkok Times reports Wanpen Inyai isnít the only person to commit suicide by crocodile. In 2002, a woman did the same thing at the same park.
Local radio stations talked to the owner of the park, Uthen Youngprapakorn. He told them the walkways in the park had additional security, and fences added.
The body couldnít be positively identified after the incident, but the family believes it is Inyai because of identification found in the pond the next day.
DNA tests are being done to confirm the ID of the remains. http://www.krmg.com/news/news/weird-...2014_partners1This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!
Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.
Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.
I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.
