Police were alerted to the death of Surin Sodsri, 67, who was found with a slit throat at an abandoned monastic centre near her house in Tambon Plapplachai, Uthong district, at 5pm.
The woman used to be consulted by local villagers as a soothsayer and spirit medium.
Her brother, Juan Sodsri, 61, said he was taken to the scene of the murder by Surin’s deaf son, who had found the body.
Police will summon Surin’s ex-husband for questioning.
