Mysterious death in Chiang Mai
An 84-year-old foreigner, identified later as Paul Lincke, was found dead near Doi Suthep, Chiang Mai.
On his side was a 9mm gun and a bullet case, said Pol Capt Winai Ravidej. His relative said the retired German soldier, who had been in good health, had been living in Chiang Mai for 14 years.
From the bullet trajectory, Lincke could have shot himself.
