South African man, 27, found dead in Trang house


A 27-year-old South African man was found dead in a house in Trang on Saturday morning after drinking beer with a countryman the previous night.

The body of Christopher Leigh was found in a room of the rented house in Tambon Tabthiang in Mueang district by Matthew Alexander, 22, at 8.40am. He was found lying face-down on his bed. An empty beer bottle was found in the room and several more outside. There was no trace of injury.
Alexander told police that he drank several bottles of beer with Leigh on Friday night and they went to bed at 10pm. When Leigh did not answer a knock on his door, Alexander entered the room and found the body.
Alexander, who teaches English at a local school, said Leigh came to visit his younger brother, also an English teacher, but the brother had left the kingdom and returned to South Africa.
The body was sent for an autopsy at the Songklanagarind Hospital.
