Phuket Police close case on death of German woman

PHUKET: Police have closed their investigation into the death of a German woman in Phuket last Friday following the request of her husband, who has accepted that she died from cardiac arrest.

Angelika Geibler, 60, was found dead by her husband at their home in Rawai. He woke early and left the house; when he returned he found her dead, still lying on the bed in their bedroom.

“She was retired and had been living in Phuket with her husband for years,” Lt Col Ekkasit Pinkaew, an Inspector with the Chalong Police, told the Gazette.

In his statement to police, the husband explained that the couple went out with friends on Thursday night, Lt Col Ekkasit explained.

“They went to bed as usual,” said Lt Col Ekkasit.

Officers found no signs of struggle or any evidence that someone had broken into the home and taken anything from her room while she was sleeping, he said.

“Her husband told us that Mrs Geibler had been suffering from an ongoing medical condition… We have yet to receive a report from Vachira Hospital establishing the cause of death, but her husband has accepted her death as being caused by a heart attack. He has no questions about it,” Lt Col Ekkasit explained.

“Since he has no questions about her death, there will be no autopsy,” he added.
