Swiss Son Finds Mom’s Suicide Note

Swiss son finds mom’s suicide note

PHUKET: -- A son of 61-year-old Swiss woman Ursula Balzan, whose body was found floating off Phuket’s east coast last week, has confirmed the handwriting in a suicide note as that of his mother, say police.

Roman Balzan, 36, one of Mrs Balzan’s two sons, flew to Phuket from Switzerland last Sunday, Phuket City Police duty inspector Sien Keawthong told the Phuket Gazette.

He chose to stay overnight at the bungalow on Koh Maphrao where his mother had been staying, and found a suicide note under a computer monitor in the bedroom.

Mr Balzan verified the handwriting as that of his late mother.

The letter revealed that Ms Balzan intended to commit suicide at sea after taking sleeping pills, Lt Col Sien noted.

“Citing a cardiac disease, she wrote that she didn’t want be a burden on her sister and sons,” he added.

Considering the new evidence, officers suspect the broken neck and bruises to her body were sustained after she had died. They were probably the result of waves crashing the body into the rocky coastline, he said.

“During our investigation, we checked the house for evidence and missing property, but did not thoroughly inspect the bedroom. We didn’t want to make the family feel uncomfortable by invading their privacy,” explained Lt Col Sien.

Mrs Balzan’s other son, Kevin, flew to Phuket from Taiwan on Wednesday, he said.

In respect of their late mother’s wishes, the sons told police they do not want the body transported to a police forensic facility in Surat Thani for an autopsy. They just want her to rest in peace, he said.

Mrs Balzan’s body was cremated at Ladthiwanaram Temple (Wat Tai) in Chalong on Wednesday.

One Son flew in from Switzerland on Sunday, the other Son flew in from Taiwan on Wednesday which means neither were in the Country at the time of the Mother's death, therefore are not suspects in the case. What does concern me is that it would appear the Thai Police did not do a full forensic examination of the late Lady's Accommodation and whilst I am no medic, can a body sustain bruising after death? Rest in Peace dear Lady.

Anti mortem, peri mortem and post mortem bruising is identifiable by any decent forensic department. Even after the body has been in water.

If the story is true....I'm sorry for the family. It must of been so hard for the family to accept what appears to be an unselfish act by the mother. R.I.P

My deepest sympathies to the family on their loss.

It's difficult for the survivors to live with suicide and my thoughts go out to them at this most difficult time. As difficult as it may be to accept, this appears to have been a selfless act by a courageous lady.

RIP.
