Not being an expert in English grammar, i understood that hanged is the past tense of hang.Hang being the verb..to hang.I also understood that hung is the past participle.Please correct me if i am wrong.

Hanged vs. hung

Hung is the past tense and past participle of hang in most of that verb’s senses. For instance, yesterday you might have hung a picture on the wall, hung a right turn, and hung your head in sorrow. The exception comes where hang means to put to death by hanging. The past tense and past participle of hang in this sense, and only in this sense, is hanged.

As DeLorean says, it's time you all checked your grammar, you hang decorations... only people are hanged.

RIP. Seems strange. You hear of expat men who are washed up in Thailand, no money, no hope, end of the road, so they suicide. However, William was an English teacher, so he had a career and salary. Perhaps his marriage was turning bad, wonder why he didn't just pack up and move away.

He had recently quit work, and became depressed after doing so.

Yet another apparent suicide funny how the wife or girlfriend is never at home when it happens ! I always ask myself why ??????

Not many people commit suicide with somebody else present.

Ever thought, that had his wife been there she might have tried to talk him out of it ?

Makes you cynical living in Thailand doesn't it. With good cause I am afraid. No suicide note? There is obviously more to this but in the land of smoke and mirrors and secrets and lies it is unlikely the truth will ever be known.

I know it's news reporting but reading Thai Visa on a daily

basis it saddens me to read about so much hurt, pain and

people dying all the time, hurting children etc,

it's making me feel really sad.

How could he hang himself if he was lying on the ground...???

Well, the article also says, "The 38 year-old Thai wife, Wongduan Lunla, told police that she returned home from work at noon and found the body of William Patrick hung from a rope tied to a window frame."

It's not a real stretch to think she may have cut him down, is it?

True ..True...while it is not a real stretch to think she may have had him murdered ( Drugged first ) and then strung up to look like a suicide because "then" the police will assess the situation and come up with a brilliant deduction based on the "obvious" and state for the record that he.......Wait for it....

Committed Suicide ............Hmmmmm......case closed ......and the lovey wife is soon off to the Life insurance company.

As I said in another post....This is known as: Hypothesizing at large....until we know the details and or facts concerning the mans questionable death

Cheers

As in Krabi / Thailand most expats / retirees girlfriend is Thai, if on each of those suicides the girlfriend would be Namibian it would be more surprising, suspicious even. However with the strict visa regulations it isn't the greatest miracle that she happens to be Thai.

She probably turned up several times per day before the crime as well and we have no report on how immediately she arrived after the crime; few minutes? few hours? And again, if she suddenly wouldn't show up anymore after the crime things would become more surprising, suspicious even.

There is always a girlfriend somewhere who turns up immediately after thr "crime" and surprise surprise, she happens to be Thai.

This has got to be the most stupid newspaper heading of all time

American Expat in Krabi Hangs Himself in Apparent Suicide

If HE hung HIMSELF of course it was a suicide.Duh!!!!!!

R.I.P.

How do you know he hung himself?

Were you there?

People are murdered worldwide frequently and the criminals are staging suicides to avoid further investigation.

Don't be so negative.

Expats get into all sorts of problems in Thailand. Bad relationships, mixed up with criminals and rotten business deals but most I guess is because of money. May be rely on work or companies for their incomes, don’t have a lot in the bank and if the money begins to dry up they fall into panic and despair then see no ways out of the mess.

A lot of Thai Farlang partners are hardly on the same wavelengths. Me being the sole money provider at home my Thai gf has little understand of how my financial situation works, all she knows that when the bills come in they get paid and some mug (that’s me) always makes sure the money is there to see us through each month and year by year. If things started to go wrong on my end she wouldn’t have clues as for why and how. Most Thai partners may be good at budgeting and understand the amounts in figures, but where it actually comes from is often too technical for them. So it doesn’t come as a big surprise when these Thai wives seem shocked and bewildered when Farlang hubby goes into hyper depression and suddenly cracks up under the strain.

T.I.T., and I don't mean this is Thailand, I am referring to you.
