(CTN News) – A pregnant woman in Thailand has been charged with poisoning 12 of her pals with cyanide, according to the BBC.

After a friend’s death was investigated, 32-year-old Sararat Rangsiwuthaporn was detained in Bangkok on Tuesday.

Sararat Rangsiwuthaporn, who is married to a senior policeman, was arrested on Tuesday

Following the passing of her friend Siriporn Khanwong earlier this month, she was put under suspicion.

Rangsiwuthaporn and Siriporn Khanwong had travelled to the Ratchaburi region on April 14 and participated in a Buddhist protection ritual at a river there.

On the riverbank, though, her friend passed away after collapsing. Her corpse contained cyanide, according to the results of the autopsy, and heart failure was the cause of death.

When she was discovered, her bags, phone, and money were all gone.

According to authorities, Rangsiwuthaporn killed 11 people throughout the course of the investigation, one of whom was an ex-boyfriend.

Cyanide Victims

All of the victims, who ranged in age from 33 to 44, perished between December 2020 and April 2023, according to the police.

They think that each victim passed away in a similar way.

According to police, victims’ relatives had also reported missing jewellery and money.

It is noteworthy that cyanide can be found in bodies months after death. Heart attacks may result from the poison’s deprivation of oxygen by the body’s cells. Shortness of breath, nausea, and dizziness are some of the early signs.

Archayon Kraithong, a spokesman for the Royal Thai Police, told AFP that investigators think money was the driving force behind the killings.

Rangsiwuthaporn has refuted the accusations

According to her lawyer, Rangsiwuthaporn, who is expecting a child, experienced stress while being held by police for a number of hours, as reported by Independent.

Chief of the Crime Suppression Division and police major-general Montri Theskha stated, “If the evidence shows she has committed other murders, then the suspect will fit the description of a serial killer.”

Surachate Hakparn, the Royal Thai Police’s assistant national police chief, claimed that it would be difficult to recover evidence from earlier fatalities.

According to the Guardian, he stated, “As no case was filed [at the time of such deaths], there was no investigation of crime scenes or anything.”

Some of the afflicted families believed that their loved one passed away naturally, even though some of them were in communication with the authorities.
