Frenchman with no money and Thai wife in apparent suicide pact in Uthai Thani

A 46 year old Frenchman and his 26 year old Thai wife were found together having apparently died from a drug overdose, said police.

 

Both had left suicide notes.

 

David Guffroy's began: "My father has not sent money to Thailand for a long time - I have no money".

 

His wife of eight years Saifon Guffroy spoke of undying love for her husband. She said they had faced life's struggles together and she would always love him in this life and the next. They would always be soul mates.

 

Police in Ban Rai district said that the clothed bodies had been dead for about five days. It was their house.

 

They found a quantity of anti-depressants at the scene and an appointment card for Saifon to see a doctor regarding mental health issues.

 

There was no sign of a struggle.

 

The first two lines of the French man's note was translated for police at the scene - the rest was not reported.

 

Police believe they killed themselves with drugs - what kind will be revealed when the autopsy is completed.

David, you were old enough to support your family. RIP. 

 

Blaming and hurting your daddy (again) isn't a smart move.

Either

1- you are right this guy is childish

2- his wife wrote this stupid note (she could probably write a few words in French).

3- he never wrote that (lost in translation problem with police or Thai reporter)

 

If the guy was a kind of mentally disabled person (childish for ever), French govt would have given him a pension, no need Dad.

It's tough to criticise in circumstances like these, but when I have had no money, I have gone out and earned some. Maybe he would have had to have left his wife behind for a period while he worked, but that would be better than them both being dead.

Sad story for sure, RIP the two of them.

Just couple of years younger than me that fella but certainly little too old to run on parents allowance i'd say ...

I quit the rat race almost 10yrs his junior being self-sustained ever since - of course that needs some ample savings ... so altogether a not very well thought out plan on his part it would seem ...

 

Agreed, if mentally challenged he would've been better off back home.

We do not know the full circumstances and it is too easy to sit there and criticize this couple. For all we know he had money lodged with his father and an arrangement to send regularly. We don't know.

 

Sometimes the stress and desolation of life becomes too much and people want to leave. It is up to them and this couple obviously loved each other dearly. May they both now find peace.

     Not if you are going the legal way without lies. Certain European countries do not have enough money to help their own folks. 

 

    A German guy in the same situation committed suicide in Germany after he figured out that he'd not make it back to his family. He had been here for 15 years. 

 

  I really understand the guy's problems and believe that something simi9lar could happen to quite a lot.

So sad, sound like a couple of babes in the wood. The main article has the wife's suicide letter in full, the google translate version is a little garbled but worth reprinting here I think, the gist is fairly clear.

 

"My name is Miss Rainy Goff, my love with David. We both passed the barrier together. Even though two of us will quarrel. But we two never, we used to share happiness together. But what we fight together? Even if we both quarrel. But no matter what, this is not a problem for us. We have been together for 8 years, no matter how sick. We have never left. I love David. Even though death will take us away, I love you so much, I will stay with you forever. We will be happy to see you again. I love you so much David. Lastly, I have nothing for you. I have always loved you."
