Here we go again – yet another foreigner who commits “suicide” in Thailand. Golden Gate Bridge has nothing on Pattaya. Makes sense, doesn’t it? Man worked his whole life and now that he’s retired, he wants to live it so he does it by flying all the way to Thailand to kill himself. Right!
The victim was a British citizen by the name of Durell Timothy Bertram. He was 63 year old. He was thrown out of… I mean committed suicide by jumping from an apartment on the 9th floor at approximately 5.30 am on December 8, 2012. He lived in a condo in South Pattaya.
The victim landed in the only area around the apartment building that is not monitored by a CCTV camera. The police reportedly found suicide letters in his apartment. They were inside sealed envelopes – he must not have had time to mail them off. Apparently, according to the suicide letters, the reason why this 63 year old man who flew all the way to Thailand killed himself was stress in life.
