(6 December) A 20 year old man who had been reportedly suffering from genital disorder has been found hanged in his home at Mueang District, Udonthani province.
The father of the deceased, who identified himself simply as Mr. Somchai, said his son injected olive oil into hios penis when he was 13 after he was told by his friends that the oil could enlarge his manhood.
Mr. Somchai said his son had been suffering a prolonged painful infection in his penis and visiting the doctors regularly. However, Mr. Somchai said his son had not seen the doctors in the past few years, and recently begged Somchai to take him to hospital because the pain had become unbearable.
Mr. Somchai said he had given his son some money for painkillers and promised him he would take the man to hospital soon.
On the day of the incident, Mr. Somchai claimed his son complained about the penile pain again in the morning, yet he did not take the man to hospital. When Mr. Somchai returned home for lunch, he said, he did not see his son and only discovered about his death in the evening.
Post-mortem investigation reported that the man had been dead for no less than 5 hours. His family stated that they are not treating his death as suspicious.
