On Friday afternoon Banglamung Police were called to the Mini Siam Superkart Racing Track in North Pattaya to investigate reports of a British staff member who reportedly hanged himself in a storeroom.

Police were directed to the location where the body of Mr. Mike Ord aged 65 from South Tyneside in the United Kingdom, a race engineer at the track, was found hanging from a roof beam. A piece of nylon rope had been made into a noose presumably by the victim, who according to a work colleague, was experiencing major relationship issues and other problems with his life, which were identified as motives behind the apparent suicide.

Police examined the scene and found no signs of foul play but the results of a post mortem examination will be obtained before the case is closed.

  • kim

    something tells me its ur TURN!!!!!………..IM SPOOKED thinking of moving to PP

  • aussie jeff, the real one

    what the fxxx are you waffling on about, please explain

  • Tomtom

    Well he could have waited 5 more years, but maybe he already waitred 5 years since the last time he decided to end his life.
    It’s his life, he didn’t choose to be born, but at least we can decide when to die, if we don’t wait too long of course.. :-)

    It’s not a big deal, only the living are not happy because their turn is yet to come, at least for him it’s done..

    I think Don1 is talking about “skewed sub-intellectual comments”. Maybe a message there.

    When are WE all going to wake up and learn that these women are not relationship material. Underneath it all they don’t really care about us and it is sad when someone takes there life over one of these women. Thais are ruthless people with hearts of stone. Best to not fully get involved over here you will have a much better time and wake up happy every day.

    The brain is suppose to be in charge, but too many let it be overruled by the heart & dick. Don’t blame LOS or bargirls, anyone can be taken advantage of anywhere. If one is stupid enough to surrender power of thought to his heart & dick, be lead to emotional & financial ruin, they are beyond saving. Here is just a good place to let it happen. Wish I had 100THB for every dead farang I have read about over the last 33.5 yrs.

    Snakes in the grass, you gotta sleep with one eye open in Pattaya

  • The dead can not speak

    why don’t they just leave if the problem is pattaya related>

    Rest in Peace Mike, best wishes to your family in this difficult time. Just a thought worth publishing; there is no emergency psychiatric help in Pattaya but if you call a suicide prevention hotline in your home Country they would help and it’s very doubtful they would care where you are.

  • Robert

    The line between someone really loving you and a gold digger is blurry enough at home, here it’s a thousand times worse. It takes a strong mind to override a mans natural delight when a beautiful girl less than 1/2 his age appears to love him. Cynicism is like a drug, a little is good but too much ruins your life, it’s difficult to get the dosage right.

    This town is seriously full on mercenary females……

  • steven

    its blurry? should get clearer as you get older man. do you really think that you old man and maybe obese too look in the mirror and think some beautiful thai girls of age 20 would LOVE YOU? farangs really YOU GOTTA start thinking and make sense. if you 50yrs and thinking right now if this sexy thaigirl maybe loves you … NO, definately NOOO, NOOOOOOOOOOOOO bring me a tool i will hammer it in your head.

  • Phoenix one

    ?????? First,I ‘ m not crying,just observe the reality around .Second,never look to find ” love ” in Pattaya,it is difficult in my native country,imagine here. Third, I try to avoid stupids,but unfortunately ,in Pattaya they cannot stay far from me ( you included ) .
    Given my poor english,if you don t understand,tell me,will try to explain it better.

  • gwats1957

    That should be the signature song for the City…. ‘Hey handsome man..spend a little time with your wallet?’ :)

    Mike Ord R.I.P. For people who didn’t know him he was an excellent guy who helped many people to race. He helped my son become Vice Champion of Thailand. Like many people in Pattaya he had his problems. He did not have a Thai wife but a British one. I guess theres a lot we don’t know but he’s passing is a very sad for our family and our thoughts go out to this family. Till we meet again R.I.P Mike May God Bless your soul

  • Maverick

    As most of us know, your handsomeness is directly proportional to the size of your wallet and bank account!

  • Phoenix one

    Hi Robert. Yes ,you are right ,better don t waste time ,
    As for me, I HAD fun before. Now,many things and people behaviour changed a lot. Of course I got my bad experiences,like everyone,but always take it easy and with a is life. But now,I cannot stay all the time in Pattaya,I need short or long break for change air. Best regards.

  • gwats1957

    In Thailand, that’s for damn sure!

  • Jeff

    RIP Mike, sadly and very regretfully, I’d not seen Mike in over 20 years, this is very sad news, my thoughts and prayers are with Mike’s wife Linda and his surviving family members

  • lavista4u

    No you wont be….You are paranoid…Which is a very good thing to have in South East Asia…being paranoid, suspicious of others behavior will make you live past 80 plus easily…Come to PH its great but be paranoid all the time….:)

  • Wally

    Maybe he was about to leave Pattaya. He’s wife has sold the house. He had a lot of problems with various persons in Thailand. Personally he never seemed like the sort of gy to hang his self. R.I.P Mike….

  • d

  • gland jack

    Keep that wallet chained up to those cargo pants we read about you like using in Pattaya gwats and no problem.

    You have to remember, These ‘girls do NOT love you, they don’t even LIKE you’. If they liked you, you wouldn’t have to pay them to sex with you, they would do it for free. Straight men are so lonely and seem to WANT to be taken advantage of. They pay their worthless wives to sta;y with them when the love is long gone. The Thai’s,,, They only want your money. It’s best to just boom-boom in the skivvy houses and leave. I don’t even bring them back to my condo cause they ‘all work together’ to get your money.
