Wife‘S Possible Infidelity Led Possessive German To Hang Himself In Pattaya

A distraught German man left his farewell party, two days before his trip back to Germany on July 8th, 2008, and went back to his Pattaya home to hang himself in front of his house. He left only one letter to his wife, saying that he wanted to die because of his concern that his wife would have an affair while he was away.

Pol.Lt.Col. Kunawut Chai-nual, Banglamung Investigator, was notified on July 8, at 01.30 am, that a foreign national had hanged himself and was dead at a house in Soi Marb-Yai-Lea 17, (Nern-Plub- Wan). Police investigators along with Sawang Boriboon accordingly rushed to investigate.

At the incident location, a two-storey house, police found the dead body of Mr. Michhel Wolfgang (54), a German citizen, lying dead on the ground near the gate of the house. Mrs Yupin (46), wife of the deceased, and her friends, who lived in the same house, were totally distraught, crying by the side of the dead man. There was a wooden chair, which had collapsed and a 4-metre long, nylon rope that the deceased had used to hang himself in the vicinity, which police kept as evidence. Police presume Mr. Wolfgang had been dead for about 3 hours. Police found no evidence of foul play. There were only bruise marks consistent with hanging on his neck.

Mrs. Yupin, who was still drunk, bereft and shocked, could not control herself and became crazed, chasing the police out of the house. Police had to restrain her to try to calm her down.

Miss Nuch-jaree Ying-nil, a friend who lives in the same house, told police that Mr. Wolfgang and Mrs. Yupin had been married and living together for many years. Her German husband and she were close friends of Mr. Wolfgang and all four had been living together in the same house for some time. Apparently, before the incident, they had all gone out for a farewell party at a beer bar near the house in celebration of the imminent return of Mr. Wolfgang and Miss Nuch-jaree’s husband to Germany on July 10.

Mr. Wolfgang had been drinking for some time and was a bit drunk and had then excused himself to go back home. When she and her husband returned to the house, later, they were shocked to find Mr. Wolfgang had hanged himself in front of the house. She and her husband helped to take down Mr. Wolfgang’s body and untied the rope from his neck, but unfortunately he was dead. Mrs. Yupin had come back home later and was totally shocked by what had happened. She became extremely distraught and temporarily deranged.

Police inspected the house and found that Mr. Wolfgang had written a letter in German that he had left for his wife, in which he had said that he wanted to die because he was worried that Mrs. Yupin might have an affair with another man during his absence. Police kept the letter as evidence.

Police assumed that Mr. Wolfgang was distraught due to his trip back to Germany and fears that his wife might be unfaithful. A neighbour of Mr. Wolfgang’s told police that the couple often had disputes because Mr. Wolfgang was possessive and jealous regarding his wife and that could be the cause of Mr. Wolfgang drinking to excess at his farewell party and why he had hanged himself. Police will send the body for forensic examination. Police were also trying to pacify the still distraught wife of the deceased, yesterday, so as to question her further.
