A South Korean couple who also had dual American nationality were found dead on a bed at a hotel in Thalang along with two syringes.
The Cherng Talay Police told the Phuket Express that they were notified of the bodies on Thursday (June 29th) at a hotel in Cherng Talay. They arrived at the scene to find two bodies on a bed, a 63 year old male and 66 year old female. They were both originally South Koreans but they had gained American citizenship.
No signs of struggling or fighting were found on their person or inside the room. The two syringes were found next to liquid medicines in two bottles. A letter written in English was found on a table. The letter stated thank you to someone who took care of them and an apology to the hotel.
Police believe that they died at least six hours before their bodies were found. At this stage, police believe it was suicide. However, an autopsy is being conducted to find the exact cause of their deaths.
