Police rushed to a dormitory yesterday after complaints of a foul smell emitting from a room.

On arrival they discovered the body of a man, hanging from a doorframe. He is believed to have been dead over a week.

The deceased, a 23 year old man from Mae Sot, Tak, was a fourth year student at Chiang Mai University. He had been staying at the dormitory for a while and friends who were concerned that they hadn’t seen him in many days assumed that he had gone back home. It was only when the smell began to cause some concern that police were called.

A student of fine arts, the man is believed to have some financial problems and owed his dormitory 10,000 baht. Friends say that he may have had other causes for stress.
