Your origional post might confuse.... I took it as indicating you believed it to be a suicide as you added comments about reported med and alcohol issues (attributed to family, who should be making these revelations... but actually coming from hotel staff who probably had no idea as to the true nature of any problems)

 

your clarification helps... thanks

i was half going on the bangkok posts article that just says it's alleged he had chronic illness for which he was taking medication. (they didn't mention the source of that info, they also didn't mention alcohol) but yes, my mistake in mentioning the family with regards the alcohol problem, on that point though, if the staff at the hotel knew him quite well as he went there frequently i think they may well have been able to spot if he had an alcohol problem

What you think that you will not disappear in Thailand, if you speak French ??? ... Nice one Mate !!! ....

 

It reminds me of when I was in Laos many years ago and Heard about asking about the safety on the Road from Vientiane, to Lao Prabang, and I heard that A Well respected Local, had said then no one had been Killed on it for a very long time .... But after the traveler asking the Question had made the Journey, … another French person in Lao Prabang laughed, and said that someone had been killed the week before !!! … Only he was an Anglophone, and this Well respected "French" Local only ever counted French People on the Roads Death Toll !!! Har Har ... (It was in the Lonely Planet I think, a Good Anglophone book)

 

…  We would be lost without you Brother, and others Like you from that great Good Old Place Euuu Rrrr Oooo Pppppp Eeee … Good on you mate, m

Martin would appreciate it I think for sure ...

thanks Brother,merci Frere

Bangkok Post, I don't take one news source as fact or any for that matter. It was reported in the BP that it was believed he was chronically ill and taking medication for it. If this is true then i would think it was probably the most likely cause of death. Anyway. I'd rather not speculate or talk about the matter anymore as if his family are still here, then they may well read Thaivisa. May he rest in peace
It must be the word 'Post'. The Washington Post has something of a reputation for inaccurate reporting!

Yes Brother Frere, Nice, and Thanks also,

 

I did some time at a little place called Leminea, near the Great Than Gorge Bridge, for a couple of weeks in a Couple of Years, … Near that Nice Place Montpellier, …. But well, Traveling from Nice up the Railways and along the French Italian Border was great !!! ... The railway like from Gap to Grenoble being Classic Turn of the century architecture, and construction, and it is STILL Running !!! … Nice Job the French.

 

Grenoble is one of my Favorite places, ... Where they climbed up on to the Roves and threw the heavy Roof tiles, down on to the Heads of the Arriving French Army from Paris, ...who were going to teach them “A bit of a lesson Right” !!! …   Well that would have been a few years ago now, right !!! ???

 

Just write you next Post in English, to avoid the Censors, Oh moderatos .... (Who are well needed on ThaiVisa seeing some of the stuff that some of our Wallies Put on here !!!) …. but use French Idiom and Slang, … so we all can be Entertained once again !!!

 

And we can Laugh in in quiet humble, memories of Martin. ...

 

I think he just got sick and just fell down ???    Was where he was found a short cut to the Beach ? Or anywhere else ? … Like lots of people like walking and like taking short Cuts, or seeing new areas also. … Very Sad he died whatever happened, but well, sickness and Alcoholism, …  like the staff would have seen the pills when cleaning the room, and he might have had to buy them locally also, …. And they would have been taking the Bottles out !!!  ….    and How would I know that ? ... and I have not worked in a Hotel, …   though I have stayed in a few … (And have had to Quietly ask for the Bottles to be taken out, …  and I have high Sugar re type 2 Diabetes, and did have Liver disease d/t Alcohol, so I stopped drinking, (Almost) but well, I will probably just fall down somewhere also one day, … ) ... (But I do hope that the Water Monitors do not get my Body so badly) … and I like walking in the bush and taking short Cuts.

 

(Ever been to an Irish Wake ? ... You are supposed to have fun there right ! ? … Like at a Thai Party, … up until the Drunks start Fighting, Right ??? ...Har har ...)

 

RIP Martin, Old Mate. We WILL Miss you and your never say Die Mates. (Like myself)

Being found in the forest is a little unusual, anyone go in there? The key to this mystery is the Snickers bar

I googled mapped it out of interest, on satellite view the only bit of forest cover 300 metres from the dream boutique hotel is patchy and looks very small.  Not much more than 100m2  and there's lots of buildings.  I would have thought somebody would have been able to smell/see something long before the body became a skeleton.

 

There is a big patch of forest about 1km away from that hotel, so maybe the reporting is just inaccurate, or maybe it's easier to lose a body than I thought.

Missing Briton’s body found by Cha-am Beach
By Asaree Thaitrakulpanich, Staff Reporter

 

Never knew, until today, that beaches could find a body.  How do they do that?  Surely, it should read something such as, "...body found NEAR ...."  Just curious.
