Initially, police assumed that It may be caused by the child's schizophrenia relapse. and is expected to use his father's walking support He hit his father until he was unconscious. before the body was cremated Because of such equipment There are bent marks.
Today (20 Nov.) officials from the Rayong Provincial Justice Office went to talk with Nang Nuanchan. along with notification of benefits in receiving compensation for crime victims according to law The initial amount was approximately 100,000 baht and the police questioned Nang Nuanchan. which admits that The son who caused the crime Had a psychiatric illness more than 10 years ago.

But after moving to live in Rayong Province 5-6 years ago, his son said that his condition has improved. and never showed any symptoms Therefore he did not go to get medicine to take continuously and confirmed that his son was not involved with any type of drugs. Including not drinking alcohol. There is only smoking tobacco.
Personally, the son who caused the incident Open your mouth and confess that He was the one who killed his father because he was angry at being scolded.

Kept quiet in the prison room. through the investigative officer Will be taken to court for remand tomorrow (21 Nov.) on charges of murdering parents, concealing, moving or destroying the corpse to conceal the cause of death.
There is an opinion from Dr. Yongyut Wongpiromsant. An advisor to the Department of Mental Health said that the cause of this patient's violence was It's because of lack of medicine. This is something that families and communities must take care of together. Statistics show that only 5% of patients suffering from mental illness and substance abuse have ever committed domestic violence. All of which are caused by being sick and not receiving treatment or missing medication or missing continuous treatment. Symptoms will recur and can cause violence But on the other hand If these patients are sent into the treatment system Violence is unlikely to occur.
Dr. Yongyut also said that if there is a problem with treatment You should seek advice from the public health system. Currently, there is already mental health care at every level. From the level of the Subdistrict Health Promoting Hospital (Subdistrict Health Promoting Hospital) to the level of the Provincial Hospital. You can receive medicine to treat psychiatric illnesses at the Subdistrict Health Promotion Hospital without having to pay a fee. Because it is a disease that is in the national health insurance system But if the family doesn't understand or not having access to treatment There should be a community to help take care of it.
In addition, I want society to understand that Problems of family violence Most are not caused by psychiatric patients. Only 5% are caused by patients who do not receive treatment. or lack of medicine or treatment The remaining 95% comes from the general public. who have mental health problems within the family which is often an offense that is reproduced Including violence against children, against women and the elderly. Currently, despite the existence of the Act to Prevent and Solve Domestic Violence, That can help victims come out of violence without having to face a criminal case. But families in trouble often don't come forward to ask for help themselves. Therefore, it must be monitored and looked after by the community. Including the health service system And the school too. Don't look at it as just a family matter. If we take care of each other Domestic violence will have an immediate solution.
