The suspect, identified as Wuttisan Wongtalay, did not broadcast the taking of his own life; however his lifeless body was discovered hanging beside his daughter’s.

"He was having paranoia about his wife leaving him and not loving him," police officer Jullaus Suvannin said.

The live broadcast aired from the rooftop of a deserted building in the seaside town of Phuket – where Wongtalay tied a rope around his daughter Natalie's neck then dropped her.

Due to the easily accessible nature of Facebook, the upsetting videos were saved on the social media site for about 24 hours for all to see.

They were taken down by 5PM in Bangkok (6:00PM UTC +8) on Tuesday - around a day after being uploaded.

In a report by Reuters, Jiranuch Triratana - Wuttisan's wife- revealed that she was living him for over a year. At first the relationship seemed fine but recently the husband grew temperamental and sometimes hit her five-year-old son from a previous marriage.

"I was afraid he would hurt our daughter even though he loved her," she told Reuters via a phone call.
