Nathan David House

With only 26 years, Mr Nathan David House born in South Carolina, has committed suicide inside his hotel room in Patong district, Phuket province on March 4. Thai language newspaper Thairath writes he apparently killed himself by taking an overdose of painkillers.

Police discovered the American one day later at around 14:30. Alongside with him, the officers found 615 Euro and 32,800 baht in cash. A hand-written suicide note with his full name, date and his last will also read: “I peacefully and painlessly ended my life. There was no foul play or coercion involved.”

According to personal his website, which he had written on his suicide note, Mr House was an engineer, entrepreneur and student. He described himself as an “atheist and nihilist” and had struggled for several years with an urge to commit suicide.

Mr House’s suicidal ideation repeatedly brought him into several psychiatric hospitals where he was involuntarily held. He wrote a lengthy and detailed text on his mental story on his website.

The suicide note further contained clear instructions for how to use the cash, one of the biggest portions asked to be given to “police and/or hospital to cover the cost of their investigation (if any)”.
