Singer commits suicide

PHUKET TOWN: A singer was found on Thursday hanging from a beam behind the room she rented on Soi Bornam in Tambon Taladyai. Chanpen Srirat, 26, a native of Phang Nga, left a note saying that she had been living with a baldheaded pimp who had spent all her savings. She had no money to pay the rent, the note went on, and the man had given her HIV. Pol Capt Anukul Nookate of Phuket Town Police Station told the Gazette that there was no evidence of foul play, and that he believed the woman had committed suicide because she was depressed over having contracted HIV and because she had no money.
