Dead German’s wife says he had cancer

THE wife of a German man found dead at a public park in Pattaya yesterday said he was in the last stage of cancer and had sent her messages bidding good bye, INN News reported today (Jan. 6).

Pol. Col. Krisana Pattanacharoen, a deputy spokesman of the National Police headquarters, said doctors have confirmed the German man, Frank Glas Fischer, had suffocated to death, and that he died 6 to 12 hours before being found at Khao Phra Yai public park in Pattaya.

There was no sign of struggle or him being moved at the spot he was found lying on the ground. A black belt was strapped to his neck and his legs blistered as if they had been burnt. Nearby was a travel bag containing clothes and medicine and next to it an opened bottle of alcohol.

Pattaya police contacted his wife in northeastern Nakhon Panom province and she told them that he left her province on Jan. 4 and sent messages as if bidding good bye.

She added that she tried to find him and is not suspicious about his death.
