Tragic. Trees can be lethal, particularly in jungle areas. Even in urban areas, caution is advised. Three years ago a elderly Italian male was killed in Jomtien, after being struck on the head by a falling tree limb.

retired policeman .... i hope their was no foul play involved

The thought crossed my mind, pinned by a tree doesn't necessarily mean it fell on him.
