    The Bangkok Post reports that the head of a Westerner in his 40s was found dangling from the Rama VIII bridge in Bangkok's Phra Nakhon district on Sunday. Police found a message in English saying, "I want it but I didn't get what I want," and, "I came here to see you". Apparently following some superb detective work, the Post said that "Investigators do not believe he took his own life."

    In an update, police determined that it was, in fact, a suicide: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/news/30096603/Italian-tourist-killed-in-Rama-VIII-Bridge-suicide
