After finding the bodies on Wednesday and checking CCTV footage, police said that Phumiphat ‘Ikkyu’ Chaiwanichaya, 18, shot his ex-girlfriend Supitcha ‘Gigi’ Pridacharoen, 20, before killing himself with a 9mm pistol, which was found at the crime scene.

The gun was registered to Chaiwanichaya’s retired high-ranking army general father Somchai Chaiwanichaya, according to Thaiger.

Pridacharoen broke up with Chaiwanichaya two months ago after being subject to physical abuse on multiple occasions, according to reports.

Born in 2003, Pridacharoen was a member of the girl group Kisskazz, and a famous Thai influencer. Her Facebook fan page had over 212,000 followers and her Instagram account more than 180,000.

Chaiwanichaya was a navy cadet at the Armed Forces Academies Preparatory.
