A computer programmer with an honors degree from a prestigious university shot himself to death on Monday morning after suffering from a headache and depression, police said.

 

Pol Captain Anuchit Chartchuliam, deputy inspector of Thung Song Hong police station, said Natthaphat (surname withheld), 23, was killed by a gunshot wound on his right temple at his house in Bangkok’s Lak Si district.

 

A .38 revolver was found near his body. He left a suicide note leaving his valuables to his mother. The note stated that it was his second suicide attempt after the first failed. He also made note of the password for unlocking his phone to see a clip of the first attempt.

 

Police learned from the family that Natthaphat had an honours bachelor’s degree in computer engineering from Mahidol University. He had been working as a programmer, writing codes embedded onto computer chips for a firm.

 

He had been suffering from a headache and depression and lived in the house with his father.

 

The father noticed that Natthaphat had not left home for work and so  checked the bedroom and found it was locked inside. The father broke the room open and found the body, police said.

I guess he is still looking for attention after death. Poor parents.

RIP! And really what a waste of a young life with potential. He should have reached out for help. And really pity the parents...the mental anguish that they must be going through. Thai society and the government should establish more safety nets to prevent such waste and tragic events.

Did the father not hear the gunshot?

It is happening all around the world.

There are warning signs most of the time but the modern world is failing to see them
