Hans Lehner helps police and nurses with inquiries in Patong today

Mystery Cause Kills Patong Woman After Stomach Aches

Monday, August 5, 2013
PHUKET: Doctors at Patong Hospital are trying to determine what killed a woman who was found dead in bed today after eating a Phuket papaya salad with anchovies last night.

Sixty-eight-year-old Dutch expat Hans Lehner, who shared an apartment with Pranee Srijaem, called police about 10am when he could not rouse her.

Khun Pranee, 39, complained of a stomach ache and was ill before turning in last night at their address in Nanai Road, Patong, Mr Lehner told police.

Paramedics from the Kusolharm Foundation Phuket and a doctor from Patong Hospital responded to the call, with police.

Mr Lehner had a different meal when the pair ate out last night.

He sat down to watch television while Khun Pranee, his girlfriend of about one year complained of a serious stomach ache, then went to bed.

Paramedics estimated she had been dead for about three hours.

It has no relevance unless some kind of link can be proven.


somehow reminds of the tragic death of the two canadian women on the Phi-Phi island

Hans Lehner is from Switzerland.
No idea why it is mentioned that he
is from Holland or The Netherlands.

Editor Comment:

Police say he's from the Netherlands, so there's clearly been some confusion.
