58 year old Kasem Bunyachon was found dead, covered in blood after officers were notified of the murder in Lak Si district. The diseased man had wounds on his face and his genitals were removed.
Police found Ms. Boonyada , wandering the street at 2:30am yesterday along with the alleged knife that was used in the crime. Witnesses told police the victim had just arrived from the hospital with his daughter shortly following. After committing the alleged murder, she fled the scene. The neighbours entered the home and called the police when they saw the body.
The victim’s ex-wife told police that their daughter had used drugs since she was very young. The drugs had made her emotionally and mentally unstable. Meanwhile, the suspect’s stepfather Songtham, 59, visited Boonyada at the police station. He said her mental state had worsened. He said she called him a rapist and accused him of raping her 10-year-old daughter. When in reality the crime had been committed by her boyfriend.
Doctors Warn Over Men Exposing Genitals
Mental Health Department director-general told reporters that men who expose their genitals in public suffer from a mental illness and sexual perversion. Boonrueng Trairuengworawat said victims of genital exposure were advised not to scream or show fear. Doctors say that could boost the perpetrator’s confidence. If victims express indifference, exhibitionists who derive sexual pleasure, gratification or confidence from a frightened reaction would be discouraged from continuing such behavior, Boonrueng added.
Only an estimated of 25 per cent of such patients, who studies have found are mostly males aged between 15 and 25 suffering from mental health issues, hormonal imbalances or feelings of sexual inferiority, have sought medical treatment, although the illness could be cured if treated properly, he said.
A study showed that 20 per cent of woman surveyed claimed to have had encounters with such behavior, with sexual perversion defined to include public exposure, obscene phone calls and voyeurism. Doctor Thitipan Thanirat, director of Nakhon Sawan Ratchanakarin Psychiatric Hospital, said the most frequent sexual perversion cases involved exhibitionism; fetishism, or masturbating using another person’s undergarments or other personal items; frotteurism, or rubbing one’s genitals against another person in a crowd; voyeurism, or watching others when they are undressing, naked or engaged in sexual activity; and obscene phone calls.
Treatment for sexual perversion consists of mental treatment to adjust patients’ thinking process and behaviour, particularly to overcome feelings of sexual inferiority. Doctors say physical treatment could include hormone pills to treat testosterone imbalances. Lastly, social treatment involves social peer pressure to discourage such behaviour and encourage more positive activities doctors said.
