City Hall officer found hanged

PHUKET CITY: The body of Boonsri Sai-ngarm, 59, an officer at Phuket City Hall, was found hanged from a stair rail at her house on Saturday afternoon.

A neighbor discovered the body and alerted police to the house on Mae Luan Rd, said Pol Lt Col Sompong Boonrat, deputy superintendent of Phuket City Police Station.

“We found no wounds or signs of a struggle at the scene. She was found hanged by a green cloth tied around her neck,” said Col Sompong.

Initial reports suggest that K. Boonsri hanged herself over work-related issues, said Col Sompong.

She had no problems with her family or history of mental illness, he added.

Two days before her suicide, K. Boonsri, who was one year from retirement, had been transfered from her position as a grade-7 financial and accounting officer to secretary of the chief administrative officer of Phuket.

“Her niece, who was living with her, told us that K. Boonsri was unhappy with her new position. She did not want to work as a secretary because it was unrelated to her old position,” said Col Sompong.

Police are not treating the death as suspicious.
