Local man dies in Bangkok hotel
AN AUSTRALIAN man found dead in a Bangkok hotel last week is understood to be from Mullumbimby.
The Australian Department of Foriegn Affairs and Trade have confirmed a 27-year-old man from NSW died in Bangkok, Thailand, but could not speculate on the cause of death at this time.
A spokesperson told The Northern Star that officials were providing consular assistance to the man's family in Australia.
On Friday, Thai media reported the bodies of two men, Australian and Canadian nationals, were found slumped in a hotel room in the Klong Toey district by a maid.
The Bangkok Post identified the men as Angus Eric Campbell, 27, and Casamel Stephen, 31.
Angus Campbell grew up in Mullumbimby and was well known and respected in the community where his family still lives.
They had been dead for between 12 and 24 hours, according to reports.
"Several bottles of alcohol and a white powder," were found in the room, leading police to suspect an overdose.
While the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has not released the name of the dead man, it has confirmed one of the men was from NSW.
Their bodies have been sent for autopsy and the white powder is being analysed.
