Several articles said that he was found hanging by his neck and penis in the hotel closet, a victim of performing auto-erotic asphyxiation, which means cutting blood off to the brain and organ to enhance the effects of sexual climax. One expert was quoted as saying from a article at Fox News,"In some cases it can suggest murder, too. But sometimes when the victim is naked and in bondage, it can suggest that the victim is doing it to himself," said Pornthip, considered the country's top criminal forensics expert. This is all peculation by many experts, but no one has the right information, until the crime lab gives the results of the toxicology reports.
