Chalong police, called to the home, found 29-year-old Jon-Eric Barwise hanging in the bathroom with a nylon rope around his neck.
After Kusoldharm rescuers cut him down, police examined the body but found no injuries other than bruises around his neck. The body was, however, taken to Vachira hospital for further examination.
His Thai girlfriend told police, “I was asleep in the bedroom and woke up to find [he] had hanged himself in the bathroom.”
After seeing the body and asking her more questions, police said that they had come to the conclusion thet the dead man had been “stressed out over a personal issue” and that this had caused him to take his own life.
