Suicide or murder? Police keep open mind after Norwegian found hanging at rented pool villa

Thai caption: Mystery death in Hua Hin

 

Police in Hua Hin have yet to come to any conclusions as the investigation into the death of a 47 year old Norwegian man intensifies. 

 

A worker coming to maintain the pool found  G. E. hanging from a cord in an outside area at the front of the bungalow. 

 

A large number of police including tourist officers, forensic teams and medics descended on the house.

 

The victim was hanging from a coiled electrical extension cord that had been secured to a concrete beam.

 

Dressed only in jeans' shorts the victim was kneeling. There were no injuries to the body apart from a slight grazing on one knee. 

 

Next to the body was a fallen bar stool adjacent to a sofa area. 

 

On a glass table top investigators found three bottles of Thai spirits, two were empty and the third was half empty. 

 

There were two empty beer cans. 

 

There were three glasses and a shot glass as well as two sets of plates with spoons and forks. 

 

Also on the table was a mosquito spray can, cigarettes, lighter and ashtray. 

 

A mobile phone was found in the pool. 

 

The body was found by Wirot, a maintenance man who said that the Norwegian who had rented the property for six months had hired him to look after the pool. 

 

He arrived as normal and when his calls were not answered he peered through the gate and saw the body and called the police. 

 

Police are gathering fingerprint evidence on all the items found at the scene, such as bottles, glasses and plates. 

 

They are contacting relatives and studying CCTV in the vicinity of the house. 

 

They have yet to state whether this was a suicide or a staged suicide to conceal a murder. 

 

The body has been taken to Hua Hin Hospital. 

 

Investigations continue; more about this as we hear of it.

Got bad news on the phone, tossed that in the pool and decided to call it quits.  I only say this to suggest they really should look at the phone call and message log.

Was he hanging, or kneeling? Surely it can't be both. I'm confused; if one is hanging then surely they're not in contact with the ground.

The old mobile phone in the pool trick, eh?   Hvil i fred.

It is perfectly feasible to hang ones self (or be strangled of course) whilst being in contact with the ground.

 

Read up on the death of Michael Hutchence.

 

 

Strangled (even choked), yes I concur. If it meant strangled/choked then that's the language that should've been used. But I guess I'm expecting too much from the reporting.

Phone in the pool suggests it was thrown there. For the poor chap to have done that he would have likely done it out of anger, thus unlikely, but not impossible, to have hung himself because he was angry. Does this not possibly suggest it was thrown there by another party? And if so its murder!

 

No one sole drinks and uses 3 or 4 glasses. I never use more than two in an evening at home.

Jeffrey Epstein allegedly hung himself from a bed. Anything's possible, possibly.
