BANGKOK (AFP) - Two English teachers, one American and the other British, have been found dead sitting side-by-side in the living room of an apartment on the outskirts of Bangkok, Thai police said.

The men, aged 40 and 35 respectively, were discovered in the early hours of Saturday morning, according to Lieutenant Colonel Chamnong Kongtapan, chief investigator at the local police station in Pathum Thani province.

Police, who are investigating the cause of death, found an empty medicine bottle in the room from a government-run drug rehabilitation centre.
"The name of the British man was on the bottle but we don't know yet what kind of drug (was) inside," he said, adding there was no sign of injuries on the men's bodies, or that a struggle had taken place.

They probably weren't drug addicts and had a low tolerance to the drug which was for addicts and overdosed.

It's really sad that something like this would happen so unexpectedly to these individuals. A total tragedy.

It seems like there are more and more news stories of foreigners getting stabbed, beaten, robbed, etc., BUT also more stories about teachers having problems (not all make the news though).

In this case, I heard through a friend that at least one of the teachers found dead was known to be a frequent drug abuser. Didn't ask for details.

I think this is important because, using and/or abusing drugs is one thing, but I also think that half the crap floating around Thailand is of a dubious concoction and can be even more dangerous than usual.

RIP to the two unfortunate teachers and condolences to their families and friends.
