A Thai actor who went to prison for murdering his girlfriend recently revealed details about the crime while in prison.
In 2021, Thai actor Toy Thanapat Thanachakulphisan, also known as Toytoy, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for fatally stabbing his girlfriend, who was two years younger than him. Recently, Toytoy did an interview while in prison and explained the circumstances of the incident.
Toytoy shared that on the day of the incident, he had a dispute with his girlfriend over a contract issue. His intoxicated girlfriend slapped him during the argument while cursing at him. He mentioned that he tried to grab his clothes and leave, but his girlfriend followed him with a weapon while cursing at him from the kitchen.
In addition, the girlfriend allegedly hit him on the head with a keyboard when Toytoy attempted to leave the building. He said that he accidentally stabbed her when he tried to take the weapon from her. After he stabbed her, he couldn’t move because his body was in shock.
Even though the blood kept flowing, she was sitting and laughing. I was so terrified of the blood that my body didn’t react properly at that moment.
He regained his composure and reported the incident to the police, but when the police arrived, his girlfriend had already passed away. Toytoy revealed that he had been under severe stress for the past two years, experiencing mental pressure and even suicidal impulses.
However, doubts have arisen about Toytoy’s statement as the police investigation revealed over twenty injuries on the deceased girlfriend’s chest, which raised suspicions about accidentally stabbing her.
At the crime scene, a blood-stained weapon about 5 inches long was found, and Toytoy, who was present at the scene, was immediately identified as the suspect.
Toytoy gained popularity after appearing in the Thai drama Why R U?: The Series in 2020.
