Chiang Mai police were called to a resort on the Outer Ring Road in Chiang Mai’s Maehia sub district on Wednesday morning where they discovered the body of a man thought to have committed suicide.


The man was later identified as Michael D., 57, a British national and the owner of a company based in Chiang Mai. The attending medical examiner estimated time of death as 6 to7 hours before the body was found.


Police found an empty bottle of wine and a canister of liquid nitrogen gas near the night stand. There were no signs of a struggle, wounds or missing valuables and the preliminary cause of death was given as suicide by nitrogen gas.
