CHIANG MAI – A 60 year old British woman Judith Robinson has been found dead in her hotel room at the Amora Hotel in Chiang Mai. Chiang Mai police have reported that after an initial investigation the death will be considered a suicide.
Ms. Robinson was found face-down and naked in a bathtub full of water, and there was a box of paracetamol, as well as a letter that police believe was the woman’s suicide note, near the body.
At the scene, police found a suicide letter detailing Ms. Robinson’s apology to the hotel along with her wishes to donate her body to a medical school, and to donate 24,800 Baht to charity organisations. The money was found in cash inside the room.
Primary investigation revealed no trace of intruders, according to the police, who were convinced that Ms. Robinson had committed suicide.
A hotel staff told police that Ms. Robinson stayed at the hotel with her lover, who later left for his/her native home in Britain (the gender of Ms. Robinson′s partner is not immediately clear). Ms. Robinson was last seen on 3 August, when she came to exchange used water bottles for new ones.
A housemaid said she had gone into Ms. Robinson’s room for daily cleaning on 4 August and noticed a note sticking at the bathroom door, but did not think anything of it and left shortly afterwards. – Chiang Mai City News , Khaosod English
