Man Broadcasts Murder of Infant Daughter on Facebook, Then Kills Himself

A Thai man murdered his 11-month-old daughter on Facebook Live, then committed suicide on Monday.

According to Rueters, Wuttisan Wongtalay tied a rope around his daughter's neck and proceeded tto drop her off the side of an abandoned building in Phuket. The man didn't kill himself on camera, but his body was found at the scene.

"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. in Bangkok (1000 GMT) on Tuesday, or about a day after being uploaded," the report says.

The fact that people could view an infant's death for that long is unacceptable.

"This is an appalling incident and our hearts go out to the family of the victim," a Facebook spokesperson told Complex Tuesday. "There is absolutely no place for acts of this kind on Facebook and the footage has now been removed."
