Australian man dies in Ubon Ratchathani

An Australian man was found dead in a house in Ubon Ratchathani's Samrong district on Thursday evening with a plastic bag wrapped around his head.

A doctor determined that the man died about eight hours earlier. He was found sitting with a plastic bag covering his head. The bag was taped around his neck.

The body was sent for a post-mortem at the Ubon Ratchathani Hospital.

His wife, P, 56, said her husband has been living with her for two years and often complained about his poor health and said he wanted to die and end his suffering.

The wife said she left home on Thursday morning and returned to find he him dead in the tool storeroom.
