Capt Nipon Temsang of the Kathu Police was notified of the death at 5:30pm yesterday (Oct 14).

Capt Nipon along With Phuket Forensic Police, local officers and Kusoldharm rescue workers arrived at a house in Moo 7 in Kathu to find the body of 39-year-old Robin Daniel Abbot from Southampton hanging from a rope tied to a beam in a store room under a flight of stairs.

Four letters were found at the scene.

Mr Abbott’s body was taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital for further examination.

Capt Nipon said, “Mr Abbott’s wife, Ms Supaporn , told us that he had just arrived back from England. They have not argued or fought before.

“Mr Abbot wrote four letters and Ms Supaporn believes that he intended to take his own life.”

Although the death appears to be a suicide, police said they are continuing their investigation.

Mr Abbot’s immediate family had been notified of his death.
