Her mother, Mrs. Plearn Saraithong, 50 told Mueang Chonburi police that “My daughter is a psychiatric patient and suffered from multiple mental disabilities.”

“She often went missing during her struggles with mental illness. Sometimes she took off her clothes and caused public disturbances.” Plearn continued.

“I am very sad. How can they do this to her?”
