Police were called to a concrete road behind the Lamai market yesterday after the discovery of a dead foreign tourist.
Yann Naquin, 31, was dead by the side of the road. A large black suitcase was on the road near the body.
There were no signs of injury to the body and there was no evidence of foul play in a room that he had been sharing nearby with a Thai woman by the name of Jirawan Changlor, 20.
Jirawan said that the Frenchman had come to Thailand three months ago and she had been looking after him for the last month.
She said that he was a heavy drinker and that on Monday he had gone to hospital and stayed a night after being diagnosed with liver disease. He came back and continued to drink heavily.
Then on Wednesday night Jirawan said that he was delirious and babbling to himself all night like a madman.
He then threw his belongings in a suitcase and announced he was leaving to go and see a friend.
Police found evidence of the hospital visit and many empties in a black bag in the room.
They believe that he literally drunk himself to death.
