Chiang Mai police are investigating the deaths of two Chinese tourists who were found in the same room at a five-star hotel on Chang Khlan Road in Chiang Mai's Muang district on Thursday.


Deputy superintendent Pol Lieutenant Paiboon Namthong said on Friday that the men died days apart. 

 

The first tourist was believed to have died in his bed two or three days before being found, and the second was believed to have died, seated in front of the toilet, about 10 hours before being discovered.

 

A police source said that the decomposed body of the first man - later identified as Qin Dianxiogm, 30 - had a rope ligature mark around his neck and was found in bed, covered from the neck down with a blanket. A 10-metre-long nylon rope was found nearby. 

 

The body of 29-year-old Sun Zhengbin was found hanging by the neck from the toilet door.

 

The bodies were discovered by a maid who detected a bad smell coming from the room that had a "do not disturb" sign on the door since June 4.

 

Police suspect the two friends might have had an argument and one strangled the other and, after sitting beside the body for days, decided to commit suicide.

RIP .... just had a thought, could it be they were on a wanted list by XI and he send his special forces to take care of the matter, like Vlad did in the UK with the Skypal's and Saudi Prince did with Kashoggi....3 very good friends with many (bad) things in common

Stunning speculation straight-of-the-bat from the local police farce. Jump to conclusions first and don't let a proper investigation get in the way of trying to appear omni-knowing on all fronts in an attempt to bag-it-and-tag-it asap so as we can all move on.

Good Lord!

 

I certainly hope they both had sufficient life insurance.

They were turned off for maintenance at the time of the "suicides" will be my guess.

I'm sure life insurance doesn't apply to a suicide victim.

A 5 star hotel with cameras that monitor what goes on inside the rooms?

 

That would go down well with the guests!
