Police in Thailand have arrested an alleged serial killer after hundreds of bones belonging to young women were found in his garden pond.
It’s claimed wealthy property heir Apichai Ongwisit, 40, made his girlfriend Warinthorn Chaiyachet, 22, sleep in a metal casket to stop her leaving him.
He appears to have targeted a large number of women and killed them in a gruesome manner before attempting to dispose of their remains, with British news publication The Sun comparing the alleged killer with notorious US serial killer Ted Bundy.
The local district attorney has charged Ms. You, 21, with involuntary manslaughter, arguing that her psychological treatment of Mr. Urtula over the course of an 18-month relationship was wanton and reckless and that it created life-threatening conditions that she had a duty to alleviate.
The case has raised questions about the role of one person’s words or actions in another person’s suicide, about youthful relationships that unspool in mind-boggling numbers of text messages, and about the use of those messages in a criminal prosecution.
