WORLD / Thailand – A 60-year-old American was found hanged in his three-storey townhouse in Thailand. The police and paramedics were activated through an emergency hotline after a caller alerted the operator a foreigner might have committed suicide.

The caller, a friend of the deceased, contacted the emergency hotline at about 11:30pm on Monday, 14 July 2014, after he couldn’t get through to his friend. The deceased, who was an English teacher at a university, posted a photo on Facebook of himself with a rope tied to the staircase, according to the Bangkok Post. The photo was accompanied by a caption “see ya” at 10:52pm.

It is believed that no foul play is suspected. The deceased, who resided in Ubon Ratchathani, was on medication for depression and was recently facing a personal issue with a friend. It is not known if the friend was the caller, or if the issue was resolved. Police is investigating.
