An elderly German man was found dead in his room in Chon Buri province during the weekend in what police consider to be a suicide.
Pol Capt Naret Bunthi of Sattahip District Police Station had received a call on Sunday evening at around 18:30 reporting that a foreign man had been found hanged in a rented apartment in Chon Buri’s Sattahip district.
When police officers and rescue workers arrived, they discovered the body of German national Mr Wolfgang Willibudick, 68, hanging from a rope attached to a steel beam on the ceiling in his bedroom. Initial inspection of the corpse and the room did not show any signs of injuries or struggles.
Police questioned the neighbors of the deceased and found out that Mr Willibudick was due to be picked up by a taxi that evening that was supposed to bring him to Suvarnabhumi airport to return to Germany.
When the taxi driver arrived, he reportedly tried to call Mr Willibudick from the outside but did not get a response. He then entered the house and found the man with a rope around his neck hanging from the ceiling and notified the authorities.
“Neighbors told us that Mr Willibudick had been suffering from various health problems and was distressed about his return to Germany for further medical treatment,” Pol Capt Naret Bunthi said.
Mr Willibudick’s body has been sent to General Police Hospital in Bangkok for further examination, Pol Capt Naret Bunthi stated, adding that the German embassy has already been notified of the incident.
