French Male

At around 15:00 on January 1, 2015 police and rescue teams were called to a bungalow on Koh Tao where the body of a 29-year-old French man was found hanging from the ceiling of his rented bungalow.

Suspicions arose over what appeared to be a suicide when on further inspection it was discovered the man’s hands were tied behind his back. Wounds were discovered around the man’s neck as well as two 5cm lacerations to his arm, one near his wrist the second near to his elbow. It is thought the man had been dead for around two hours.

The door to the man’s bungalow was open and there was no sign of a struggle. Police and rescue workers found a note on the man’s bed that suggested a recent love affair may have come to an end and that the man recently lost one of his grandparents, however questions are being asked as to how it is possible for anybody to commit suicide with their hand tied behind their back.

An autopsy is expected to reveal the cause of death.
