Man shoots wife during dispute over Bitcoin investments


A domestic dispute between 35-year-old Thai resident Uthai Kritsada and his wife over a failed investment in the first cryptocurrency escalated into a confrontation with the police. Thaiger reports this.

First, the concerned husband shot his wife with a pistol and then barricaded himself in the house. Local police surrounded him and held their position for six hours.

Kritsada led the negotiations, for which a member of his family was brought in. After some time, the criminal surrendered to the authorities.

The man also threatened to commit suicide if his wife died. In a state of stress, he managed to shoot himself in the leg. Kritsad had to be hospitalized.

The female victim is in hospital in stable condition under the care of a doctor.

The incident was caused by the loss of 700,000 baht (~$19,500) in a Bitcoin investment, which led to family discord. The wife evicted Kritsada and demanded a divorce. He regularly visited her house, fearing betrayal. On the day of the incident, the man hoped to make peace, but the evening ended differently.

Thai authorities charged the detainee with attempted murder and illegal possession of firearms.

Let us remind you that in August, American crypto-millionaire Christian Peev was found dismembered in Bulgaria. His acquaintance, bartender Vesko Valchinov, was allegedly involved in the murder.

Earlier, Fernando Perez Algaba, a crypto tycoon and Instagram trader from Barcelona, ​​was found murdered in the Argentine province of Ingeniero Baj.
