A man in Thailand filmed himself killing his 11-month-old daughter in 2 video clips posted on Facebook before committing suicide.

The videos of the child’s murder could be viewed on the father’s Facebook page for about 24 hours, until they were taken down.

This is an appalling incident and our hearts go out to the family of the victim,” a Singapore-based Facebook spokesman said to Reuters. “There is absolutely no place for content of this kind on Facebook and it has now been removed.”

Murders, suicides and sexual assault have become a problem for Facebook, despite it making up a small percentage of videos. On Tuesday a Swedish court jailed 3 men for the rape of a woman that was broadcast live on Facebook.

Facebook recently said that it was reviewing how it monitored violent footage and other objectionable material after a posting of the fatal shooting of a man in Cleveland, Ohio, which was visible for two hours before being taken down.

The footage from Thailand showed Wuttisan Wongtalay tying a rope to his daughter Natalie’s neck before dropping the child from the rooftop of a deserted building in the seaside town of Phuket.

Wuttisan’s suicide was not broadcast, however his lifeless body was found beside his daughter, said Jullaus Suvannin, the police officer in charge of the case.

“He was having paranoia about his wife leaving him and not loving him,” Jullaus told Reuters.

Wuttisan’s wife, Jiranuch Triratana, said she had lived with him for over a year. At first, the relationship had gone well, but then he grew violent and sometimes hit her 5-year-old son from a previous relationship.

She feared something was wrong on the day of the video, when she found he had left home with Natalie. She set out to look for them.
