Australian Presumed Dead of Overdose After Fight With Thai Partner

At 10.30pm, on the night of September 29, Rattanathibet Police Station received reports of a suspected suicide after the body of an Australian national was discovered at a condo in Bangkrasor, Nonthaburi.

There, on the 3rd floor of City Home Towers 2, Rattanathibet Road, medics attended the body of fifty-four-year old Australian I.T worker, Mr Donald George Crawford, laying on his back. There were various pills ‘scattered around the body.’

His Thai partner, thirty-five-year old Mr. Pakin Phutrakul, said that the couple usually lived together but that he had left two days previously as they had ‘been fighting.’

He says that when he arrived home he found the victim laying on the floor without a pulse and called for the medics.

Officers estimated the time of death to have been around 4pm and ‘the cause is unknown at this time although it looks like an overdose.’

The body has been sent for autopsy
