Brit expat found dead in Rawai

PHUKET: British expat David Cummins, 54, was found dead in his Rawai home late last night.

Mr Cummins’ body was found by 45-year-old Duangduan Ngamprim, who had been living with him in Soi Saiyuan for about a year, said Lt Wuttiwat Liang-Boonjinda of Chalong Police.

“I came home at about 11:30pm and found David sitting on the floor with his head lying against the television stand,” Ms Duangduan said. “I called to him, but he didn’t respond so I ran to neighbors for help, but it was too late.”

MS Duangduan told police that she was unaware of Mr Cummins having any underlying health conditions.

“However, Mr Cummins had recently been sick and suffering from intermittent fatigue,” Lt Wuttiwat said. “We are still looking to establish the cause of death.”

Police have informed the British Embassy of the death.
