Unexplained tourist deaths in Thailand
By Asia Sentinel Mar 14, 2011 3:55PM UTC

On Jan.11, Mariam Soraya Vorster, a 33-year-old American tour guide working in the northern Thai city of Chiang Mai, became sick with what was thought to be food poisoning and died.

Vorster’s death would be the first of five in Chiang Mai in just six weeks, four alone in a hotel called the Down Town Inn. Two more women staying in the same hotel became severely ill and nearly died.

Two of the dead — British pensioners George and Eileen Everitt died within hours of each other. Authorities told a press conference that the two, 78 years old and 73 respectively, had died of heart attacks within minutes of each other although their son, Stephen Everitt, told the New Zealand Herald that both were active, healthy and had no history of heart problems.

These are hardly the first unexplained deaths in Thailand. Routinely in Bangkok, especially around the seamier districts, supposedly healthy young males are diagnosed in autopsies as having died of heart attacks.”

In fact, although there is no public data on foreign fatalities and detailed descriptions of the cause of death of tourists in Thailand, anecdotal evidence indicates that a disturbing number of foreign nationals die of unexplained causes – as many as 50 on the island of Phuket alone over a recent eight-month period.
