British man dies in Phuket | Thaiger

KOH KAEW: A 65-year-old Englishman was found dead in his rental home near the Boat Lagoon yesterday afternoon.

The deceased, Barry Ronald Cutler, was found at about 4pm, naked and lying on a staircase landing in his rented home in Phuket Inter Villa residential estate on Soi Bangkoo 1.

Mr Cutler rented the house in October and lived alone.

A neighbor of Mr Cutler, Ms Mayarassamee, became suspicious after not hearing from Mr Cutler for several days. Mr Cutler visited Ms Mayarassamee’s home on a regular basis to have lunch with her and her mother.

After many calls went unanswered, Ms Mayarassamee decided to ring the bell at his house. There was still no answer, despite the fact that his motorcycle was parked in the garage.

She then asked a security guard to unlock the door, and discovered Mr Cutler’s body.

The home owner was allegedly the first to be notified. She in turn contacted Phuket City Police and English Honorary Consul Martin Carpenter at around 4:30pm.

Police led by Lt Col Jumroon Playdoung and Kusoldharm Foundation workers arrived at the scene at around 5:30pm

Police reportedly found a running laptop computer and medication from a private hospital in Phuket City on the dining table.

Ms Mayarassamee said that Mr Cutler had told her that he was in a motorcycle accident in Patong last month that affected his brain and that he had a history of heart disease.

She commented that her neighbor was a nice guy and that she felt sorry to learn of his passing.

Mr Cutler was last seen alive by neighbors at about 9pm on New Year’s Day.
