An Australian man was found dead in a house in Ubon Ratchathani's Samrong district on Thursday evening with a plastic bag wrapped around his head.

 

Police believe the death of Austin Reid, 68, was a suicide as there was no sign of fighting and struggling inside the storage room at the house where he lived with his Thai wife in Ban Nong Wa village in Tambon Khok Sawang.

 

A doctor determined that the man died about eight hours earlier. He was found sitting with a plastic bag covering his head. The bag was taped around his neck.

 

The body was sent for a post-mortem at the Ubon Ratchathani Hospital.

 

His wife, Praphasri Akko, 56, said her husband has been living with her for two years and often complained about his poor health and said he wanted to die and end his suffering.

 

The wife said she left home on Thursday morning and returned to find he him dead in the tool storeroom.

It is  easy to blame the person,,  blame the world or blame yourself. but when you think about it , the only thing you can do is sit celebrate who the person was. There is no way any of us are ever going to understand what happened or  why it happened, and why they did it and it is easy to get into figuring out ...what you could of done....

 

Heh True Blue , R.I.P.  Mate

I am hot , sorry I am not an armchair detective but I would have to op out a different way. After about 3 secs with a bag over my head I would have to rip it off, A bit like putting my head in a bucket of water ,  couldn't do it.

survival mode would take over,it's only natural,and there he is

calmly sitting with hands folded, RIP mate.

Sad that illnesses overcame his will to live. At 78 I'm terribly grateful for my caring Thai wife of 34 years. Health could be better but it could be a lot worse. I still get to see the sun shine, when it's not raining.

I wonder what time the wife left for work, and if she does an 8 hour shift.  It seems that the wife is always out in these alleged suicides.

Yep. Definitly suicide. Took some sleeping tabs, fell asleep, put bag over his head, taped it up and died. Strange how we see these things on Thaivisa but usually don't see autopsy reports. Suicide or drugged and murdred? TV please keep us informed.?

I wonder whose fingerprints are all over the bag and tape..... but that would involve critical thinking and another police force to sort that out
