Ruszbach Chlaszlo Gyorgy

A long-term US expatriate living in Phuket committed suicide by slashing his own throat.

On December 20 at around 21:00, the body of Mr Ruszbach Chlaszlo Gyorgy, 62, was found by his wife who made a distress call to the police saying that she had found her husband’s lifeless body on their bathroom floor. Officers from Chalong Provincial Police Station and rescue volunteers were immediately dispatched to the scene.

Arriving at 95/26 Soi Houypru in Phuket’s Rawai subdistrict, rescue workers first had to take care of the wife who had passed out briefly from the shock of finding her husband dead. She was sent to Wachira Phuket Hospital for treatment.

Police officers entered the bathroom to find Mr Gyorgy’s body. Covered in blood, he was lying on the tiled bathroom floor under the sink only wearing underwear. His throat showed three deep cuts which police assume to have caused the death. They also found a blood-stained cutter and bagged it as evidence.

Investigators talked to close friends of Mr Gyorgy who revealed that the couple had been married and living on the island for several years. One of them, who police declined to name, said that Mr Gyorgy often complained about financial problems and having trouble with his family.

Police assume that Mr Gyorgy was no longer able to cope with the stress and decided to end his life while his wife was away from the house. When she returned, she made the shocking discovery that her husband had killed himself and called the police.
