No signs of foul play in British woman's death in Koh Tao

Initial investigation has found no foul play in the death of a 23-year-old British woman earlier this week in Surat Thani's Koh Tao.

The body of Christina Annesley, 23, was discovered in her rented bungalow, and there were no signs of ransacking or struggle. Police will send the body, which showed no marks of aggression or injury, to Surat Thani Hospital's forensic division for further examination.

Pol General Ruangsak Jritake, deputy National Police chief, said yesterday that police were focusing on examining the woman's room and nearby area as well as a thorough collection of forensic evidence. He said some medication has been found in the room, and police are checking to see if it is linked to the death.

Annesley's parents, who are on the island, believe their daughter died of 'natural causes'.
