Mysterious death in Chiang Mai

Police found the body of an 84-year-old foreigner, identified later as Paul Lincke, near Doi Suthep in Chiang Mai yesterday. Lying beside the body was a 9mm gun and an ammunition case, Pol Captain Winai Ravidej said.

Lincke's relatives said the retired German soldier was in good health and had lived in Chiang Mai for 14 years. Judging from the bullet trajectory, police said he could have shot himself. The cause of the death would be further investigated, Winai said.
