Swede’s death “probably suicide’

KARON: A 36-year-old Swedish tourist was found dead yesterday evening in Karon in what appears to have been a suicide. Pol Lt Teerawat Liumsuwan of the Chalong Police Station said the body of the tourist, whom he named as Kauhava Jauko Tapio, was found in the bathroom of his rented house in the soi opposite Karon Post office. He was hung by a rope tied to a steel pipe. The police believe Tapio’s death was suicide, as there were no signs of foul play at the scene; but a definitive conclusion cannot be reached until the investigation is complete. Mr Tapio’s body was taken to Wachira Phuket Hospital for autopsy, and the police continue to question friends and acquaintances who were with him shortly before his death.
