Reawat‘s 71-year-old mother, Somboon reportedly discovered his almost unconscious body on Sunday, lying in a pool of blood which had been oozing from the severed penis.

He was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance where he was stabilised.

Somboon is quoted as saying: “My son was a good boy. He went to a good university in Bangkok. But he became involved with drugs and then killed two people while he was having hallucinations and fighting.”

She said he has been trying to start a normal life by mostly going to shopping centres mostly to buy groceries.
