Man commits suicide in Rassada | Thaiger

RASSADA, PHUKET: A young man on Thursday committed suicide by hanging in the home he shared with relatives in Tambon Rassada, police have revealed.

Phuket City Police Duty Officer Anek Mongkol and Kusoldharm Foundation officers at 12:20 pm responded to a report of the suicide and went to the scene, an apartment on the fourth floor of building five in the Karnkeha low-income housing estate in Rassada Village 7.

There they found the lifeless body of 27-year-old Ronnakrit Pancharoen suspended by the neck from a water pipe in the bathroom. He had hanged himself using a loincloth.

Friends of Mr Ronnakrit told police he had been quarreling with his girlfriend and had earlier discussed thoughts of suicide.

An initial investigation of the body revealed evidence of bruising to the neck, but no other trauma or signs of foul play.

The body was taken to Vachira hospital for further examination.

Mr Ronnakrit had been employed as a captain in a restaurant located near the traffic circle on Ong Sim Phai Rd in Phuket City.

When the restaurant closed down, Mr Roannakrit was laid off. Unemployment is believed to have contributed to his state of depression.

Mr Ronnakrit had been playing snooker and drinking with friends before returning home late the night before.

Upon returning home from work, Mr Ronnakrit’s brother-in-law discovered the body in the bathroom of the flat, shared by the deceased, his younger brother and sister-in-law.

Mr Ronnakrit’s body is due to be returned to his family for funeral services.
