A Thai man filmed himself killing his 11-month-old daughter in two video clips posted on Facebook before committing suicide, police said Tuesday.
People could access the videos of the child’s murder on her father’s Facebook page for roughly 24 hours, until they were taken down around 5 p.m. Tuesday in Bangkok, or about a day after being uploaded.
The harrowing footage from Thailand showed Wuttisan Wongtalay tying a rope to his daughter’s neck before dropping her from the rooftop of a deserted building in the Thai seaside town of Phuket.
Wuttisan’s suicide was not broadcast, but his lifeless body was found beside his daughter, said Jullaus Suvannin, the police officer in charge of the case.
Thai netizens voiced outrage about the clips of the child’s killing, which were uploaded Monday, the first at 4:50 p.m. and the second at 4:57 p.m.
The first video had drawn 112,000 views by midafternoon on Tuesday, while the second video showed 258,000 views.
