Ao Nang, Krabi police called to a luxury hotel's 6th floor on Tuesday found a 40 year old German tourist dead in bed. 

 

Christopher Faust's head was covered in a red bag and there was green duct tape binding from the neck up to the nose. The roll of tape was still attached. 

 

He had been dead between one and two days in the room that has it's own private swimming pool. 

 

There were no signs of a struggle or theft. Items such as a laptop computer, money, credit cards and passport were all in place, reported Thai Rath

There were two glasses half filled with a liquid on a table two meters from the victim. Two bags similar to the one covering his head were found by the bathroom. 

 

Pol Capt Sarawut Kittireuangrayap investigating found that Mr Faust had checked in to stay from the 7th to the 16th of June. 

 

Everything appeared normal according to staff - on Sunday he had ordered food in his room but had not been seen since. 

 

Police are giving weight to the theory that he committed suicide - there were bills for the duct tape in the room. 

 

They are checking the purchase of the tape and the CCTV at the hotel and an autopsy has been ordered at Krabi Hospital.

Clearly a case of suicide, that do not have to be investigated at all. I must say that the suicide patrol that have been making Thailand their prime destination, is coming up with more and more sophisticated ideas to get rid of themselfs. If suicide, good job!

POST " 2 ?  POST 3,  is your answer, cops here to kin lazy to take finger prints from the two glasses, to busy out on the roads stopping bikes  have they got any forensics here, ? , yes we have seen them at work in the past, with 2 innocents locked away for a double murder

In this case to early to scream homocide, aint it. We need more beef to decide if there was or not. 

 

Any ladyboys onvolved, a creazy bar lady with a jealous husband would help alot. 

 

Or he thought Thailand would solve all his problems, and spent his fortune in 3 weeks, and nowhere else to go when his love of his life left him behind. 

 

We need more details.

Not sure he have a gf? Doesnt say in the article as far I could read, but you mentioned the phone. And the phone is not listed as well. 

 

As far we know, it could have been a bf, or nobody. You could asked, where is his drinking buddies. ? What kind of alcohol did they drink. That is a very important detail, to get closer to solving this mystery.
