Thiraphong Lamluea was found dead in her room on Wednesday 15th June - about a week after she had been killed. Her boyfriend has been arrested for her murder.

A Lithuanian man has been arrested in the murder investigation of a 31-year-old transgender Thai woman.

Thiraphong Lamluea was found dead in her apartment in the Prasat district of Thailand on 15 June. Her mother Wandee Lamluea was the one who discovered Thiraphong’s body after neighbours reported a foul-smelling odour coming from her house.

She was found wrapped in a blanket in her bedroom and had died from blows to the head, most likely from a bottle, according to Bangkok Post.

When police arrived, there were drag marks on the floor with traces of hair and bloodstains around the apartment. Police reported that Thiraphong had likely been dead for a week.

Lithuanian native Marius Kunickas, 31, who was Thiraphong’s lover, was arrested on 16 June at a beach in Pattaya.
