Depressed woman “fed herself to crocodiles” at popular Thai tourist attraction
A woman who was suffering from depression is believed to have fed herself to the crocodiles at a popular tourist attraction in Thailand.
The 36-year-old Thai woman told her husband that she was going to see a doctor and would then go to popular Crocodile Farm in Samut Prakarn just outside Bangkok.
She never returned home but she was caught on CCTV cameras entering the tourist attraction 20 miles south of the capital.

The mystery has deepened because the Crocodile Farm have reportedly denied the incident took place.
However, husband Sunai Jisathra, 55, claims he was told by workers there that a woman fitting his wife Tiphawan”s description had been killed.
He said farm workers told him it happened after the woman “jumped intentionally” into a crocodile pit.
Mr Jisathra also said he had been contacted by a man who said he represented the farm and wished to make a settlement.
The husband said that he was not surprised. His wife had money problems and had suffered from depression for a long time.
“It was possible she had committed suicide to escape her troubles,” he said.
He said he would not file any charges against the farm owner. All he wanted was the truth and that incidents at tourist attractions in Thailand can often be covered up.
