A Norwegian tourist was found dead inside his car on Koh Samui in Surat Thani on Monday evening.

 

Aspen Anray Solian (unofficial spelling), 28, was found dead in the driver’s seat on Thaweerat Phakdee Road in Tambon Maret of Koh Samui district.

 

The body showed no sign of violence. A doctor said he had died about one or two hours earlier.

 

A bakery shop worker said the tourist often dropped in to the store to enjoy baked goods and a drink. After the tourist arrived at about 4.30pm, he remained in his car with the windows shut.

 

The worker wondered why the tourist had not left his car after more than an hour and so knocked on the window. The worker spoke to the tourist but he did not respond and so the worker sought help from a nearby bar waiter and they discovered the Norwegian was dead.

 

The waiter said he knew the tourist well because he was a months-long yearly visitor to Koh Samui.

 

This year, the tourist arrived with a friend three weeks ago but the friend had left.

 

The body was sent for a post-mortem at Surat Thani Hospital.

And what exactly is a normal tourist in your eyes? It clearly states that he was a regular visitor on Koh Samui for a month every year. 

As far as you or me know, he can own both car and a condo or house on Koh Samui. Would that make him a less normal tourist? I know many people with assets in Thailand that comes and goes as tourists every year.

Indeed there's a whole bunch of farangs in Thailand who crave to be classed as tourists.

 

...but treated differently.

 

...and not be called a tourist.

Not a normal tourist surely, thats no rental car.

Who said it was a rented car?  The guy is a regular Samui visitor and he may have borrowed or bought the car for his " usual month long annual visit"?

The vehicle has U.K. number plates having lived in Koh Samui for more than 7 years I never ever came across this car which is surprising . RIP to the deceased .

The car appears to be a Ford Escort MK1 from 1973.

 

Doubt the guy was a regular tourist. Whatever, so what`s it to be, suicide of heart attack. Case closed.

Flared wheel arches. RS2000 maybe.

28 years young,if the exhaust was faulty as some theorise,I am

sure the young lad would have smelt it.

I just hope they find the real cause of his death,and its not just

a cover up.

regards Worgeordie

Carbon monoxide is colourless and odourless; I think it is sometimes referred to as the 'silent killer'.  I'm not theorising anything just pointing out alternatives to the suicide or heart attack options.
