At the scene behind the condo MR. TIMOTHY BERTRAM DURELL, 63, a British man from London was discovered beyond resuscitation by emergency services, after staff on duty in the reception area heard a dull”thud” sound outside and went to investigate.

The article says he was well known and ran a business in the "alternative" community in the city. So what business was that?

No idea why this man chose suicide, but all this jumping from condos is getting to be a bit much ...

Because they weren't addresses to them?

I was on Dongtan beach this afternoon with my daughter and a couple of old queens were talking about it. Said he committed suicide last night and was in with someone for 4 million and owed other people bits and pieces too. Guess his debts caught up with him.

Apparently he was also owner of a well known go go bar in addition to Panorama. I've heard these types of businesses are not the gold mines they once may have been. High costs to get into and massive competition from the internet, etc. OK I just read some "information" another place saying it was known he was under financial stress. Anyway ... RIP.

As far as the news story goes, if the man owned a couple of gay bars, why not just say it if that's the story, instead of this silly "alternative" euphemism silliness? (In other words, what century and country are we in here?)

smile.png , only there is a dead body so perhaps an investigation is needed to determine the cause of death, i am sure the writer of the letters would not mind and the recipients would also understand.

I agree with Jing, all the balcony jumpers is becoming all too frequent, for some reason so many suicidal people chose the same way.

PS. i am not trying to be insensitive to the issue or make fun of it, but really way too many seem to jump and all seem to be suicides, while no investigations take place

At least no one else was walking under "Ground Zero", do these suicides ever check?

Far better use the old charcoal cooker CO way out, far more peaceful, as long as you don't set the building on fire.

Sorry Buggers... RIP

i do not believe Thailand to be a paradise, actually far from it.

Every country has its good and bad, it is what people make of it.

Of course for someone retired with some money, this place may seem as a paradise, i am about 30-40 years away from retirement, so i hardly call it a paradise, as i work 7 days, long days just as i would in any other country.

The only perks i like and enjoy are- late night shopping, more like 24 hours shopping. can have a maid(much much cheaper than back home) relaxed road rules(especially parking) and variety of cheap food to eat out, all the rest is hard work
