Thai police complete probe into suspected cyanide serial killer, hand case over to prosecutors

Cops have completed their task of diving into the matter of Thailand’s worst suspected serial killer on Friday, having the case in opposition of a woman charged with of a spate of cyanide poisonings over to prosecutors. Fourteen victims lost their lives and one is still alive in a claimed murder spree that extended over eight years, police said, declaring that they would file the case to the Attorney General for prosecution on Friday. Sararat Rangsiwuthaporn is facing about 80 criminal allegations, which involved 14 counts of premeditated murder – a record in Thai crime history, cops conveyed.

“Sararat is alleged with premeditated murder in all 14 cases, which is connected with the death penalty,” Mr Anek Taosuparb, deputy commander of the Crime Investigation Division, conveyed to the reporters. “This is a historic case in Thailand. Even Jack the Ripper from the UK did not kill this many,” Deputy Police Chief Surachate Hakparn said, talking about the pseudonymous killer of at least five women in London’s East End in 1888. Sararat is pretending to be not guilty to the allegations, according to the cop. The authorities said the alleged murders were having a common financial purpose and that the suspect was dealing with addiction to online gambling.
