'Deadly ghost' kills four men in Thailand

Public health officials have been sent to investigate the mysterious deaths of four men in Kalasin province.
According to reports, the four men, who had been residents of Nong Kung Si district, were killed by what is known locally as a 'porb ghost' which is said to kill its victims by eating their internal organs.

Local tradition states that these female spirits haunt their victims relentlessly while gradually feasting upon their organs until their injuries are too great and they die.

The villagers reportedly took matters in to their own hands by hiring a 'hermit' to come and perform a special ritual designed to scare the troublesome spirit away from the area.

Now Dr Pairat Songkhram, a preventative medicine specialist who is the head of the health team visiting the region, has stated that an investigation in to the deaths is now ongoing.

The aim will be to rule out paranormal explanations in an effort to pacify the frightened villagers.

At present, all four of the deaths remain unexplained.

Health team sent to help villagers frightened by ‘deadly ghost’

By The Nation

Public health officials, including a doctor and psychologists, have been dispatched to a tambon in Nong Kung Si district in Kalasin province following rumours that a porb ghost had killed four men.


The rumours prompted action by Kalasin chief public health officer, Dr Prawit Sriboonrat, to try to pacify frightened villagers.

However, villagers in Moo 3, Moo 8 and Moo 11 villages of Tambon Nong Suang had already taken action by hiring a “hermit” to perform a superstitious rite to chase away the ghost.

The villagers said they believed the ghost has eaten the internal organs of the four men, causing them to die.

Northeastern traditional beliefs relate that porb ghosts are spirits that haunt their victims and gradually eat their internal organs until they die. The ghost is usually identified as a female spirit.

Prasit Singhamat, head of Moo 3 village, said the rite calmed the villagers and they appeared to have stopped worrying. Most returned from the rite with smiles on their faces.

However, the head of the public health team, Dr Pairat Songkhram, a preventive medicine specialist, said officials would continue to look into the scientific causes of the deaths, and psychologists would interview the families of the four men.

Pairat said he had also instructed team members to avoid saying anything that would ridicule or belittle the villagers’ beliefs.
