Capt Somkiat Sansithi of the Chalong Police confirmed the death of British expat Dean Pearson on Saturday (Oct 20) yesterday afternoon (Oct 23). However, at the time of speaking to The Phuket News Capt Somkiat could not recall whether Mr Pearson was 37 or 38 years old.

Mr Pearson’s wife found her husband hanged at their house behind Wat Chalong and reported the incident to police at 5:50am on Saturday.

When police arrived at the scene Mr Pearson was still alive so rescue workers rushed him to Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket Town where he was later pronounced dead,” Capt Somkiat said.
