PATTAYA: -- At around 8:30pm on July 17th, Pattaya police and emergency services received reports of a dead body found hanged at his condo in Pattaya.

 

The incident took place at Yunica Pattaya Condominium.

 

Police were quick to arrive and found the body of American Mr. Anthony Matthew Klang, aged 54, still hanging from a piece of rope tied over the wardrobe.

 

The police and medical team realised he hadn’t been dead too long and quickly cut the victim down and initiated emergency CPR treatment. A few gasps of air were heard, but sadly it was too late and the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

 

Police received the initial call from the victim’s girlfriend, who had returned home from work to find the body of her boyfriend hanging.

 

She went on to tell police that he had been having problems with his business back at home, and was a little short of money, but not once did it cross her mind that things were so serious that it would drive the victim to commit suicide.

 

No other injuries were found on the body, and the victim was taken away to a local hospital for a full postmortem. His family and friends have been notified of the tragic news.

Business back home failing, so he comes to Pattaya for a final fling and tops himself off?

This is one of the few cases where the gf or wife did not say they had been arguing.  Not un typical to have financial issues, nothing to fall back on, no place to live etc.  Don't know anything about the man's background or education or work history or job options, but it can be hard to get back in the technical work force (engineer for example).

 

Having said that, and I don't fault the girl, what were the timeline details?  She found him.  Then called police, police took what, 10 minutes to arrive?  She went outside and flagged down a cop?  I don't really expect her to try and get the guy down, but a knife could be used to cut the rope. Did she yell for help? Sorry but my suspicious flag is raised

Paranoia lurks amongst us, don't tell me you sleep with one open as well 555

The thing that gets me is all these farangs hanging themselves or throwing themselves off buildings, surely sleeping pills can purchased over the counter, take the bottle and sleep, never to wake up, just saying that would be my preferred way to go as opposed to a rope around my neck or splattered all over the tarmac.

 

RIP to another farang

I know a guy who is a former heroin user...I would not know a bag of heroin if you slapped me in the head with it.

 

Anyhow, he said that to shoot up & OD on that stuff was the way to check out.

I'm more suspicious of the motives behind a reporter's use of poetic license to turn a tragic suicide for all involved, into a major drama.

I've read a few female celebrity memoirs lately. They all chug down the pills and it never kills them. They always wind up with a stomach pump. Cry for help and all that rot.

Are you aware of how much/many sleeping pills aka benzoes or benzo similars you have to take to die? 

 

Shitloads of pills - I dont think you would be able to swallow so many pills at all...

I certainly do not have a clue = I'm typing instead of rotting 6 feet under.

 

I've never contemplated just how many pills it might take. Do not really care to either.
