Father killed baby daughter on Facebook Live to hurt wife

POLICE say a man who live streamed the murder of his infant daughter before killing himself was feeling "neglected by his wife" at the time.

The latest sickening outrage on social media in Thailand's Phuket province comes just a week after Steve Stephens brutally killed 74-year-old Robert Godwin live on Facebook in the US.

The Phuket Gazette reports the 21-year-old man, Wuttisan Wongtalay, livestreamed the death of his 11-month-old daughter Natalee in a four-minute video.

Police captain Jullaus Suvannin told media the video showed the baby screaming for minutes before eventually going quiet. Wongtalay's body was also found at the scene.

"He felt neglected by his wife because they had been fighting so he took his 11-month-old daughter to the site of the crime which is the abandoned hotel," Police Col. Jirasak Siemsak said.

"Then we found the bodies hanging off the hotel.

"The mother of the child was crying and was very sad. I am also very sad. It is a personal dispute and they were still very young."

The video posted by Wongtalay had 370,000 views and was on the internet for 24 hours before it was taken down.
What makes the sickening incident even more horrific is that other people also uploaded the clips to YouTube. Those clips were removed from YouTube, owned by Google, within 15 minutes.

A Facebook issued a statement saying "This is an appalling incident and our hearts go out to the family of the victim. There is absolutely no place for content of this kind on Facebook and it has now been removed".

Following the killing of Mr Godwin, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced at a developer's conference that Facebook would improve the reporting process so that offensive videos could be removed faster.

Facebook Live, which lets people stream live video, faces a particular challenge to the social media giant and people have used it to broadcast assaults, suicides and rapes.
