A 73-year-old Norwegian man killed himself at his Thai wife’s home in Kaeng Khoi district of Saraburi province after complaining of loss in his crude oil business. The man was identified as Mr Nils Gunvald.
He died on the second floor room sitting on a chair with plastic bag covering his head and a rubber ring tying tightly around the neck. He died of suffocation.
His Thai wife Narisara Panna, 49, in tearful eyes, told police that she married and lived with him 30 years ago. She said her husband was a businessman doing crude oil business and travel regularly between Thailand and Norway.
But she said that during the past few months, her husband complained about loss from his business and was in stress when all his saving was running out. He also complained that he had no money to pay for his visa which was going to expire.
She said a few days earlier, he also brought out a pistol for cleaning, but put it back in place after the cleaning. But he still complained about the loss, she said.
Forensic police inspected the room but found no traces of struggle, and initially believed he committed suicide. A suicide message was left by his side, police said. However they have sent his body for autopsy to find out the real cause.
