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

Recommended Posts

I feel sorry for this 47 y.o man. It seems to me this sort of death is kind of becoming rather common in Thailand. Is it not? Any members of TV agree?

Will expats who had lived for years in Vietnam, Cambodia , Laos , Philippines tell me did they see so much suicide cases in those countries?

    A friend of mine said it all boils down to statistic. He said other countries don't have the numbers. If you combine all the tourists, expats & businessmen(any nationalities) in Thailand  it comes to a big number. A lot of things happened when you have a big numbers.

   He said during the Black death in England and Europe the countrysides were less affected, because people lived wide apart and a lot fewer people.  You need a certain number of people for the illness of Black Death to perpetuate.

If what my friend said is true then it is expected rather than going around thinking the Thais might have murdered them for some reasons.

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.

in the long run they'll all end up on the ground if undisturbed.. RIP

RIP. But if it was the case that he had just gotten a bad cancer diagnosis and wanted to check out, it is normal to leave behind something written for those who find him, yes? There should be some communication and papers regarding the diagnosis. And checking out before even starting treatment sounds strange to me. Or getting a second opinion in Norway.

 

The position he is hanging from doesnt seem strange at all. He could have drunk himself into a stupor after rigging the calbe, and then gone through with it.

 

From what I understand his house is 200 meters from where I live here in Hua Hin.

 

Sad to see this kind of thing. Anyone reading this and feeling depressed, I recommend finding someone to talk to.

I didn’t know him well, but the word amongst the ladies is that he had received an unbeatable cancer diagnosis,

So you live in Hua Hin ?  How can you be sure "the ladies" are telling the truth?  How did you know him ? Too many questions here.

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

 

   So surely he wasn't alone. No need to call Sherlock Holmes from TV. 

 

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

 

   Or perhaps, they just close the case and state that it was a suicide. 

 

   Case closed.  RIP, poor man. No matter what happened to you, it would be great if they could find that out.

 

  There could be a killer somewhere who could do that again.

Huh, I was speaking to a Norwegian living in Hua Hin in an online game a little over a week ago.

Well it certainly must be the same guy then if the guy you were speaking too was Norwegian and this guy was Norwegian. I mean how many Norwegian s can there be in Hua Hin?

"Hanging" is the description of the act that killed him, "kneeling" was the position he was found in.  Obviously.
