Bangkok--A man found dead in an apartment in Chonburi Province, eastern Thailand, on Tuesday, has been confirmed as a Taiwanese national, Taiwan's representative office in Thailand said on Wednesday.
The Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Thailand identified the man as a 47-year-old Taiwanese surnamed Hsu (?).
The office said it has notified Hsu's family in Taiwan and will assist them in traveling to Thailand. It will also help Thai police investigate the cause of Hsu's death, according to the office.
Thai media reports indicate that Thai police arrived at the apartment after receiving reports about a smell and found the man lying on his bed with charcoal burners and a Republic of China (Taiwan) passport by his bedside.
They also found a note written in English saying "I am sorry moto give owner."
Initial investigation points to suicide by burning charcoal in a confined space, but police are still investigating and want to talk to a friend who until recently lived with Hsu.
