Family gather to mourn loss of ‘man with many friends'
THE FAMILY of Mullumbimby local Angus Campbell gathered in Sydney yesterday to mourn the tragic death of the much-loved 27-year-old.
Angus's father Bruce took a moment yesterday to thank friends and Northern Rivers community members for their messages of support.
"He was a wonderful boy and so loved by so many people," Mr Campbell said.
"One friend said of him 'he was a man with many friends and no enemies'. This was his nature - pure kindness."
Mr Campbell's body was found last week in a Bangkok hotel room alongside the body of Canadian Casamel Stephen, 31.
Thai media reported that several bottles of alcohol and a white powder were found the room, leading police to suspect an accidental overdose.
The men's bodies were taken for autopsies and the white powder was being analysed.
A Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade spokesperson confirmed yesterday that a 27-year-old man from NSW died in Bangkok, Thailand.
"The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is providing consular assistance to the man's family in Australia," the spokesperson said.
"It would not be appropriate to speculate on the cause of death at this time."
