Bangkok’s Dr. Death, a forensic pathologist Dr. Porntip Rojansunan, who is waging a one-woman war against Thailand’s notoriously corrupt and trigger-happy police. She estimates that police lie or tamper with the evidence in 60% of the deaths she investigates. Some police officers have attempted to silence her through court action.
Porntip’s stand against the authorities is transforming her into a people’s champion. She’s mobbed in public, asked for autographs, invited onto TV chat shows, a law and order pop star who quite literally dresses the part. Her eclectic fashion sense is more 1980’s punk night clubber than sober- suited investigator. Her unforgettable wardrobe manages to both annoy the police and delight her growing army of fans.
Since she works with corpse’s day in day out, you’d have thought that she might be able to communicate with ghost spirits, but somehow they must be afraid of her, might be because of her cool looks. Regardless, they still communicate in some fashion, the stories that she’s telling below clearly indicate that there’s something there that we can’t deny of its existence, and the means of communication is through dream, and sometimes through meditation, which ever they choose, they’re communicating with us.
These stories were told by Dr Porntip aka Dr. Death, in Kullastree Magazine, written in Thai Language, translated by Ginger.
I’ve never thought that I’d be telling ghost story, but it’s very strange, there’re evidences indicating that the ghost spirits can communicate and tell us of what happened to them, which I had never experienced this myself, but the ghost spirits would tell someone else, very strange, it made a believer out of me.
I’ve been working as a forensic pathologist for over 20 years but never once saw ghost, heard them speak amongst themselves, or even dreamed of them. I’ve worked diligently to help solve their cases (meaning the dead or ghost) but not once did they say thank you to me.
It was almost 9 years ago when I first discovered that ghost spirit exists, it was when the plane crashed at Surat Thani. At that time, there were a medical student and her father that died in that crash, her friends called and asked me to perform a forensic DNA testing of her, and this was how I was involved and aware of the ghost spirit.
The body was identified as Jane Doe, it was impossible to know who it was, one doctor asked me to perform a forensic DNA testing because he had a female relative that died in the crash, and her family had a funeral service for her but one of the family members dreamed that she has not been released, which her family suspected that they got the wrong body. When the result came back, it was as suspected; this was the first time that I learned about the communication of the ghost spirit.
It’s a good thing that the ghost spirit didn’t try to communicate directly with me.
Next case, also involved dream of a ghost spirit telling that he has not been released. It all started when a lady was looking for her husband, he had been missing for several days, and later found dead on the side of the road. His wife left his body there, and went to the police station to report his death, but when they got back to the scene, this body was burned so they had to ship his body to Bangkok for forensic testing. After that, then his wife had a simple funeral service for him at Wat (temple), the first night of the service, she dreamed that he told her that he has not been released. She assumed that she had the wrong body. It was strange that two cases were identical, almost the same story you might say, ghost spirit telling that s/he has not been released.
It made me wonder why the ghost spirit didn’t just come out and say that it was the wrong body, why let us do the guesswork, what if we guess wrong, or is it that the ghost spirits have limited language or words that they could use, almost talking in riddle, strange.
Finally, the case came to my attention, when there’s a forensic DNA testing involved, my name always is pulled first. When I first saw the body, just by looking at the skull, I could tell right away that it was a female because of the structure, or possibly someone that was gay. The result of the DNA came back as I had suspected, a female, not only the relatives that were in shock, so was I, what’s going on here? You’d not have thought that there’s such story.
The next case also involved dream, the sugar cane farmer was tilling his land to prepare for planting, and he took his son with him. The boy came running to his dad and said that there were rats running down the hole nearby, and asked if his dad would look at it, but his dad had no interest so they went home. That night, the farmer dreamed that several rats ran down the hole and led him to a corpse.
When he got up, he tried to figure out the meaning of his dream because often times, most people would translate dreams into lottery numbers. Finally, him and his friends decided to go over to the hole and started digging, to their surprise; they found a body of a man, buried with his hands handcuffed from the back.
Every detail was exactly the same as his dream. It then turned into a murder case because he had a bullet lodged in his skull, who ever did this was extremely evil, kidnapped, handcuffed, and then shot him in the head, possibly to shut him up.
The next case, the ghost spirit communicated via meditation, it started when a female attorney, 46 years old, who was involved with several high profile cases. She was attending a meditation convention at a well-known resort, and her friends tried to warn her that she might be in danger because they just found out that someone was after her, but somehow they couldn’t get in touch with her.
Shortly after that, she was brought to the hospital, the person that brought her said that she was in a bicycle accident, rode down from a steep hill, she arrived in critical condition but died shortly thereafter. Her friends didn’t believe that it was an accident and asked me to perform a forensic examination. From looking at her overall appearance and the severity of her injury on her face, but there were no bruises on her body, it was cleared that she didn’t ride down the hill as originally reported. After a close examination, her wounds indicated that there were 3 weapons used, which was ¾ woods, knife, and rock because the wounds indicated that way.
After the examination, her family came to pick up her body and I told them the detail of her injury. Before her family left the room, one of her friends asked to come in because she has something to tell us. She sat down and told us that on the day of the accident, she was meditating and her friend came to her and told her that it wasn’t an accident, but a group of people attacked and killed her, they used ¾ wood, knife, and rock.
This person obviously didn’t hear what I told her family and her family never left the room, so it was impossible that they could have told each other of what I said. After I heard the story, I felt chills and goose bumps all over, oh, it was as if she had seen it with her own eyes. This was the first time that I discovered that ghost spirits can communicate in so much detail, but it’s a good thing that they didn’t try to communicate directly with me because it’d be confusing if I was asked to appear in court, what would I tell the judge, that the ghost spirit told me in my dream; it’d be thrown out of court for sure.
There’re more cases, these are just a few that I’m sharing and there’s no solid proof, just what I’ve heard and saw and thought that they were strange and interesting. I don’t believe 100% of what I heard because sometimes people can add things to make the story more interesting, they might know only 5%, besides, it’s hard to prove, but it’s interesting to know that ghost spirits can communicate and tell us a great deal.
