The person who allegedly cut the ropes, from which two handymen were hanging while repainting a high-rise condominium in Nonthaburi two weeks ago, reported to police today (Wednesday) and confessed to the crime, saying she was “annoyed” by the handymen and had not intended to kill them.

The suspect, a 26th floor resident of the 32-storey condo, had initially denied cutting the ropes on October 12nd before confessing after being presented with CCTV footage, witness accounts and forensic evidence which implicate her.

The handymen survived the fall after being rescued by another condo resident, who happened to be near the balcony at the time.

The culprit said she had not been notified by the condo’s management about the painting and seeing the handymen hanging outside her window had scared her.

She has been charged with attempted murder and causing loss of assets.
