Man hangs himself after wage cut

PHUKET TOWN: A man was found dead yesterday morning, hanging from a beam in the room he rented in Tambon Rassada, a half-empty tube of glue on the floor nearby. The body of Anucha Foythong, 21, a native of Phang Nga, was discovered when a neighbor looked through a window and saw him hanging from the rafter. The dead man left no note, but Pol Maj Winai Khongkaew, an inspector at the Phuket Town Police Station, told the Gazette that Anucha might have been despondent because his employer had cut his wages for being late to work. Friends and neighbors said the man was addicted to sniffing glue, frequently causing him to be late or absent from his job at a horse riding club in Rawai.
