In a statement seen by the BBC, his wife said he had been out drinking with another man in the city of Yangon on Friday night before his death.

 

The Foreign Office said it was investigating the death of a British national and was providing support to the victim's family.

Why don,t they just say "British teacher found murdered in Burma" ?

Wasn't that the name picked by the British for their colony?  Not necessarily the name used by the locals???

 

From what I've read, neither Burma nor Myanmar are acceptable to the entire population.  Quite the debate.

Dead man is Gary Ferguson and they are looking for his friend and drinking partner Harris Binotti.  Ferguson was found dead in Binotti's apartment and he is believed to have fled to Bangkok.  Details have been passed to the Thai police.  The source for this information is The Times in the UK.

Burmese people can't murder people , as we all know they are innocent .   But looks to be another foreigner who did it (his drinking mate) this time.

Dead man is Gary Ferguson ...

 

Nope, not me.  And RIP to the deceased.  I hope the authorities can find out what caused Gary to lose his life - the rapid departure of his teaching colleague seems a tad suspicious.
