British national Andrew Thomas Quinn, 56, was found hanged in his Huay Yai home which had also been deliberately set on fire. His wife Daoruang told investigators that her husband had lately been drinking heavily and had begun affairs with several women. She claimed that Quinn had struck her on more than one occasion when she refused to grant him an amicable divorce. For this reason she had left the house to stay with relatives. On the day of the suicide, the distressed foreigner asked his wife to come home or he would burn the house and end his own life. The next she knew was when a neighbor phoned her to say that he had accomplished both of his aims.
