Capt Somkiet together with rescue workers from Khusoldharm, Ruamjai Kupai,and Rawai Municipality arrived at the house to find an an unconscious foreign man lying naked on the bed with a black plastic bag covering his head. The bag had been tied around the man’s neck.
“There was no evidence of a struggle in the room or on the man’s body,” Capt Somkiet said.
Capt Somkiet said that a letter was found in the room stating the man really loved his girlfriend but they were having problems.
“We have been arguing for last couples days so I left the house. When I come back I found him dead,” she said.
Capt Somkiet believes that suicide was the cause of death, but the incident would be investigated further.
