An elderly Briton who has been living in Thailand for more than 10 years was found dead in his rented apartment room in what is believed to be a suicide.

Police found Philip Brown lying face down on his bed in his eighth floor apartment at the Chuanchom Mansion on Soi Ratchadapisek 32 in Bangkok’s Chatuchak district, at 3pm on Thursday.

Police say he had a plastic bag over his head and there was a tube running to a nitrogen tank.

There was no damage in the room and police say the evidence points to suicide.

Police were called when a maid was unable to enter the room and there was a strong smell from inside the room.

Brown has been living in Thailand for more than 10 years and has been working in a computer field, police said.

Police say Brown once told the apartment management that he was going to die and sought help from management to make a will to leave all of his assets to his Thai wife, Kesinee Kulwong, 58, a Phetchabun resident.

Two months later he cancelled the will, saying he broke up with Kesinee, who was still seen visiting the Briton.

The body was sent to the Police Hospital for an autopsy.
