Brit backpacker accidentally hanged herself in Phuket hotel room after row with boyfriend

Recommended Posts

You all need to read the Mirror source report, which quotes the Uk Coroner. She ruled it to be death by misadventure, not suicide. She discounted the RTP officers' assesment, and explained in detail her reasons for doing so.

As someone posted earlier, this means the insurance companies will have no excuse not to pay out. 

I hope no one is going to suggest the family bribed the coroner.............?

i may be lacking some imagination here, but exactly how can someone accidentally "hang" one's self?

My thoughts exactly. And how could someone hang themself with a bed sheet unless one end of the bed sheet was attached to a hook or high object to obtain leverage and pull against the neck? It takes considerable force to cause strangulation by hanging. This is why in executions by hanging victims are always dropped from a height or suspended from a height. No need to be an expert to figure this one out.

The only reason a UK coroner would be ruling on a death in another country would be an insurance claim. I dont think its standard practice for a coroner to look into deaths of all brits in other countries, unless they are asked to.

why would any western man bring a girlfriend to thailand. must be a frustrating place to be if you cant take full advantage of thailands attractions.

Nonsense, why would one NOT bring your girlfriend to take full advantage of the million and one other attractions [apart from the available sex that you are obviously on about.]

You really think that couples don't come here for all the other attractions?

Sad story really. Especially for her family. The boyfriend will have to live with this for the rest of his life also.

better to either not come here with your partner or find a new partner that would respect you and not flirt with the thai hookers.

How can one separate hookers from the rest? Seems most of the office workers who go out also do a bit of 'freelance'  work. 

Seems normal here for a large percentage of girls with a job to expect to be paid for the privilege.

I'm guessing the mother had knowledge of past behaviors, i.e threatening to kill herself for attention when upset or previous attempts where she did just enough to cause great concern but not actual death. Somewhat common in young women.

So you are the expert? Guessing and actualy having inside knowledge are completely different. At least keep your guessing to your self out of respect to this poor girls family..

Correct, but it seems in this case the boyfriend had other ideas. Girlfriend gets over inebriated, feels tired or has a headache, no problem this is Thailand, I`ll seek my jollies elsewhere. Seems the temptations of some young female flesh were too overwhelming for the guy.

 

Going back 30 years ago when I was single, footloose and fancy free, I went to Majorca for a holiday. There I met many women and guys who had either partners with them or back in Britain bonking around with each other, it was like participating in one mass orgy every night. But during that time I was only 29 years old and easy to find sexual partners in that holiday atmosphere at that age. I met one girl from Liverpool, her name was Valerie, told she she was engaged to a wonderful guy in Britain and she was on a 2 week holiday in Spain with her mates. We witnessed her sleeping with 2 to 3 guys every night including me. Back in those days was when most people had never heard of aids and hardly anyone practised safe sex, the girls were on the pill and that was that.

 

Young couples going on holiday together to exotic destinations can lead to where temptations become too strong, for both guys and gals, not a good idea, me thinks.

it happens many times in thailand usually the man splits up with the girlfriend after getting eyed up or sleeping with a thai girl , if you come here to thailand with a foreign partner get used to him getting chatted up by the local thal girls a sad end but to be honest question marks on accidental hanging ?? seems a common theme here 

Why do you think he chatted with thai girls? It could be with farang ladies

According to the news articles that came out right after she died, the boyfriend found her with the bedsheet wrapped around her neck and the other end tied to the doorknob.

"Hurt by her boyfriend’s words, Ms Brown left Patong Beach and went to their apartment at around 3:00. When her boyfriend returned home three hours later and opened the door, he found Ms Brown dead with a bed sheet wrapped around her neck and the other side connected to a door knob."

 

When the police arrived, she was face up on the bed. 

"The victim, 27-year-old Abigail Louise Brown, was laying face-up on her bed. The area around the neck showed bruises and pressure marks. At the end of the bed, officers found a loose bed sheet which they bagged as evidence."
