- Suicide or murder? Police keep open mind after Norwegian found hanging at rented pool villa in Hua Hin
Suicide or murder? Police keep open mind after Norwegian found hanging at rented pool villa
Thai caption: Mystery death in Hua Hin
Police in Hua Hin have yet to come to any conclusions as the investigation into the death of a 47 year old Norwegian man intensifies.
A worker coming to maintain the pool found G. E. hanging from a cord in an outside area at the front of the bungalow.
A large number of police including tourist officers, forensic teams and medics descended on the house.
The victim was hanging from a coiled electrical extension cord that had been secured to a concrete beam.
Dressed only in jeans' shorts the victim was kneeling. There were no injuries to the body apart from a slight grazing on one knee.
Next to the body was a fallen bar stool adjacent to a sofa area.
On a glass table top investigators found three bottles of Thai spirits, two were empty and the third was half empty.
There were two empty beer cans.
There were three glasses and a shot glass as well as two sets of plates with spoons and forks.
Also on the table was a mosquito spray can, cigarettes, lighter and ashtray.
A mobile phone was found in the pool.
The body was found by Wirot, a maintenance man who said that the Norwegian who had rented the property for six months had hired him to look after the pool.
He arrived as normal and when his calls were not answered he peered through the gate and saw the body and called the police.
Police are gathering fingerprint evidence on all the items found at the scene, such as bottles, glasses and plates.
They are contacting relatives and studying CCTV in the vicinity of the house.
They have yet to state whether this was a suicide or a staged suicide to conceal a murder.
The body has been taken to Hua Hin Hospital.
Investigations continue; more about this as we hear of it.

Hua Hin: "We didn't sell our baby online", harassed family tells Thai police
A family in Hua Hin has gone to the police to say that they didn't try to sell their five month old baby online.
The family of the infant have been caught up in the ongoing investigation about an illegal adoption service on Facebook.
The service for parents who can't afford to raise their children is under the scrutiny of the Social Development and Human Security minister who believes that the site contravenes human trafficking laws.
The child in Hua Hin appeared on the site. Since the case broke the family have received threats online and been the subject of a hate campaign.
They told provincial police at the Hua Hin station that contrary to claims on social media they did not sell the child who was up for adoption.
The mother is a 22 year old deaf woman who had her aunt and uncle look after the child since it was born.

- Rogue elephant faces transfer after demolishing convenience store
Rogue elephant faces transfer after demolishing convenience store
A wild elephant in the area of the Kaeng Krachan national park is facing a fate usually reserved for corrupt Thai officials.
On Wednesday night "Bunmee" popped into a convenience store in Huay Sat Yai and demolished it.
The locals have been complaining about the pachyderm's antics for years but they might have expected it - Huay Sat Yai can be translated as "The Creek of Large Animals".
Yesterday Hua Hin district chief Thanon Phanpheephat went with a large entourage of officials to see the shop owner Thanita and three other home owners who suffered damage at the hands of "Bunmee" who locals call by the more disparaging name of "Ai Duan".
The Bloomin' Amputee.
Thanon is in touch with the park chief and other officials to look into a transfer for the elephant who has damaged things like durian trees and even threatened motorists on the roads.
They are now looking for a suitable "inactive post" where Bunmee will cause less trouble.-- © Copyright Thai Visa News 2019-09-2020 September 20 20191124419

- Hua Hin: Tourists help in ten kilometer clean up of the beach
Hua Hin: Tourists help in ten kilometer clean up of the beach
Thai media reported that the Hua Hin municipality and other volunteers had help in a clean up operation along ten kilometers of the coast.
Tourists chipped in to keep the beach clean.
77kaoded reported that trash blown in that had found its way into the sea via rivers and canals was less than normal for this time of the year perhaps due to light winds.
But there was still plenty of it and the main culprit (disregarding who had tossed it out in the first place) was a mass of cups and bottles....
Made of plastic.
Tourist areas and beach fronts outside big hotels were cleaned up first as this was deemed to be the most damaging to the image of Thailand.

Hua Hin: Tricky lady boy ripped off her friend over rental car for tourists
