Man Hangs Himself as Result of Addiction to Inhalants

From the Phuket Gazette in Thailand:

Last Saturday in Thailand, 26 year old man hung himself in prison. Police attributed his apparent suicide to his “unstable mental condition, the result of a long-term addiction to inhalants.”

The man was “found hanging by a meter-long garment that he usually wore wrapped around his midsection, under his clothing. The garment was a gift from his mother when he served his compulsory military duty years ago, and was not visible to officers when he was placed in the cell the day before.”

The prison added he had “recently escaped from a drug rehabilitation center” but that he was in imprisoned for stealing his neighbor’s wallet.
