Although the man left a message suggesting he might take his own life, but question arose how could he hang himself with both hands tied to the back.
Koh Tao police said they were alerted around 3 pm on January 1 and rushed to a bungalow on Koh Tao where the body of a 29 year old French man was found hanging from the ceiling of his rented bungalow.
Suspicions arose over what appeared to be a suicide when on further inspection it was discovered the man’s hands were tied behind his back.
Wounds were discovered around the man’s neck as well as two 5 cm lacerations to his arm, one near his wrist, and the second near to his elbow.
It is thought the man had been dead for around two hours.
The door to the man’s bungalow with the word “Dmitri”, on it was open and there was no sign of a struggle.
Police and rescue workers found a note on the man’s bed that suggested a recent love affair may have come to an end and that the man recently lost one of his grandparent.
However questions are being asked as to how it is possible for anybody to commit suicide with their hands tied behind their back.
An autopsy is expected to reveal whether or not that man was drugged.
