Again? Man Murders Infant Daughter On Facebook Live Then Kills Himself
It seems like every day that goes by, there is another act of violence broadcasted on Facebook live.
This time, a man in Thailand did the unthinkable. Wuttisan Wongtalay, 21, broadcasted a four minute video of him struggling to hang his 11 month old daughter to death at a construction site. According to reports, he then hung himself.
"The clip showed the screaming baby while her father attempted to kill her by hanging," captain Jullaus Suvannin told the outlet. "The baby eventually went quiet, after which Mr. Wuttisan hung himself." Reuters reported that the disturbing video, which was taken down 24 hours after the heinous crime, featured the father on the roof of a building holding his daughter before tying a rope around her neck. He then dropped the baby from the side of the building. The father ended the livestream before killing himself in a similar fashion. Family members said Wongtalay was angry that his wife was going to leave him. His uncle told the Phuket Gazette that before taking the baby, Wongtalay had allegedly choked his wife and threatened to kill her."This is an appalling incident and our hearts go out to the family of the victim," a Singapore-based Facebook spokesman told Reuters. "There is absolutely no place for content of this kind on Facebook and it has now been removed." -(NY Daily News)
Facebook is going to have to do something about this. I'm not saying that people won't still do these horrible things, but the world doesn't have to see it
