PHUKET: -- Police have confirmed that Phuket expat Rolf Werner Ruegg, 81, from Switzerland, was found dead in his home in Chalong yesterday afternoon (April 25).

 

His body was discovered by housekeeper Chonthicha Jarunai, who notified the police, said Lt Chanat Hongsitthichaikul of the Chalong Police.

 

Officers and rescue workers arrived at the home, in a sidestreet off Luang Por Chaem Rd, which runs alongside Phuket’s famed Wat Chalong temple, to find Mr Ruegg’s body lying face up on the bed.

 

“We believe he died at least two days before his body was found. There were no marks on his body indicating that he was involved in any sort of a fight and no signs of a struggle in his room,” Lt Chanat said.

 

“Ms Chonthicha told us that Mr Ruegg lived in the house with Thai wife, Nom ‘Khaek’ Sang-u-rai, 58, but she had returned home to Patthalung for a visit three days ago,” Lt Chanat explained.

 

“Mr Ruegg was alone in the house. Ms Chonthicha said she came to do some housework last Saturday and that Mr Ruegg was here and he was healthy.

Totally agree, I have in the past expressed the same sentiment.

 

And please no autopsy as well, although I think that is SOP for foreigners dying here?

Died naturally of old age. Absurd and intrusive 'reporting'.

Well you would think so but TIT.  Wife away (again) and he decides to die of natural causes.  Sorry but even I am more cynical when you get these stories every day.  I hope you are right though.
