At 9pm, on the evening of October 31, Banglamung police station received reports of a man hanging inside an apartment at Soi Nongyai Temple M. 6 Nakleau.
A large crowd had gathered outside the three-story apartment building whilst Sawang Boriboon medics attended to forty-eight-year old Mr. Somporn Sookthonglang, who was wearing a blue motorcycle taxi bib.
Mr Sookthonglang was declared dead at the scene.
His son, eighteen-year old Mr Natthapol Sookthonglang, said that he had been out but received a phone call from a neighbor telling him to go home. He said his father had large debts that he was having trouble paying and that a few days earlier had a major argument with his mother.
Mr Sookthongland junior believes this may have contributed to his father’s decision.
