A 47 year old Phuket man has shot himself dead, in what police suspect is a case of suicide. Nation Thailand reports that Kittichai Musiksong’s body was found on a couch at a property in the Taladyai sub-district. He had a bullet wound to his right temple and a blank gun model was found on the floor.

The blank gun contained a live bullet, with officials saying the dead man may have modified the weapon to take live ammunition so that he could shoot himself with it.

“Blank guns can normally fire blanks only and are generally used for practice or as a prop in movie shooting.”

The dead man’s sister says he called her to say he’d been fighting with his wife. As they were saying goodbye, Kittichai asked his sister to take care of things. Following the call, the sister called the man’s wife.

“I called his wife to ask what was going on, but she said Kittichai had not come to their home in Wichit sub-district since Saturday and suspected that he had gone back to his old house, where he was found dead.”

A police investigation has been launched to establish the cause of the suspected suicide. The dead man’s body has been sent for an autopsy.
