Haunted man loses control at Thai monastery

Security Guard Driven Insane By Female Ghost | Pattaya Daily News.

A 45-year-old security guard at a department store claimed he kept seeing a woman ghost in a white dress who followed to haunt him. He requested to see the Abbot at Phosamphan temple. But he abruptly became insane and shattered the mirrored doors of the parsonage.

At the scene, police found the monks and novice monks restraining the trouble maker, identified as Mr. Phonsiri Janthamas, age 45. He had been cut by the damaged mirror on his left hand, which was bleeding heavily.

Mr. Phonsiri was trembling uncontrollably and appeared to be deathly afraid of something. He told police that he could see the ghost standing beside the wall of temple.

Mr. Phongsiri asked his colleague to bring him to the temple to see the monk because he was being haunted by a female ghost. But when they arrived, Mr. Phongsiri lost control and smashed the mirrored doors, injuring himself.

I’m not sure how people reading this story will take it. Will the average person in Thailand see this as a true haunting of a man by a ghost or is he haunted by his own mind? From the rational perspective, this man needs mental help. From the superstitious perspective, he’s being punished for something by a vengeful ghost who is driving him mad.

    The poor guy should’ve been on some kind of medication for years, I’d think.

    I don’t see anything in the reporting of this story that would justify an assumption of a long term condition, nor necessarily the sort of mental illness that would be addressed with medication. Wouldn’t something more directly physical, such as a growing brain tumour, be sufficient to explain the man’s visions and his apparently diminishing control over his reaction to them?
