Richard Ivan, 75, said that he had moved to Thailand ten years ago after getting married to a Thai woman. She was out in Bangkok on Saturday.

He said that he had been suffering from depression so his son Timothy Hoffmans had come over for the last two weeks to visit him. They were together in the house. 

About 6pm on Saturday they had gone to their rooms but at 10.30 pm the father found his son dead in the bathroom. He went out on his motorcycle to alert neighbors who called the authorities.

Police at the scene estimated the son had been dead for 4 to five hours. They found a BB gun gas canister next to the body along with a roll of surgical cloth. 

In a bin were the remains of green/yellow capsules that had been emptied out. There was also a syringe. 

Police suspect a drug overdose but don’t know what the drug was. 

An autopsy has been ordered to get to the cause of death. 

There were no signs of a struggle or foul play.
