PHUKET: -- A retired police officer commited suicide by shooting himself in the head earlier today (April 27). According to a family member he has had a long running battle with health issues.

At 6am, Phuket City police were called to a house in Moo Baan Thorranee Tong on Thepkasattri Rd in Rassada where a man had shot himself dead.

Police, Kusoldharm rescue workers and forensic expert, Lt Kittisak Noopeing arrived at the two storey townhouse and found the body of former police Senior Sergeant Maj Chanat Bumpen, 65, lying on the bed with a gunshot wound to his left temple.

A .38 calibre pistol was on the bed between his legs.

Police said they found no sign of foul play, robbery or assault and that the man had been dead for at least one hour.

Maj Chanat took early retirement from the police in 2004 due to health issues. He had been in and out of hospital after being diagnosed with embolism, his wife told police.

“He had been complaining about his illness all night and said that he was in too much pain,” she said.

Maj Chanat̕s body was taken to Vachira Hospital.

Very odd, all the RIP-merchants are quiet on this one. Couldn't be because a police officer was the victim, could it?

Yes can understand wanting the pain to end especially if there's no light at the end of the tunnel. RIP
