Man stabs his father for ‘forgetting to add sauce to his favorite soup’

A man stabbed his father to death 10 times with a kitchen knife for forgetting to add fish sauce to his favorite pork soup, it has been reported.

The Daily Mail reported this week that the victim Ngor, 65, was taking too long to cook lunch for his son at their home in Buriram in southern Thailand.

Sakdin Duangphakhon, 36, hit his dad with an empty bottle over the head and slapped his mother Pa, 66, when she tried to interfere.

Police arrived to the crime scene to find the son covered in blood calmly laying in a hammock at the front of the single-storey home.

A video shows the officers ushering Sakdin to re-enact the crime and finally made him kneel down and apologize to his father's dead body.

Deputy Inspector Colonel Nitipat Kitichartchai said the son got drunk while waiting for his food to be ready and became mad.

After confessing to the crime, the son was sent to Amphore Nangrong prison in Buriram to await sentencing.

The father was found wearing a loin cloth without a shirt.

"He had more than 10 stab wounds on his back, particularly across the left shoulder, and one the deeply penetrated the heart. The smell of blood stained the area," the inspector said.

"I asked the wife how her husband died and she identified her son as the killer. He was found outside the house in a cradle (hammock) with a lot of blood on him but he was not injured,” he added.
