When rescue workers arrived they found he was still breathing slowly. They immediately gave first aid, but failed to save his life, police said.
Nuengruethai Pakheekit, 31, told police she and her Amercian boyfriend lived together in the room. She returned from work on Monday night, opened the door and was shocked to see him sitting near the wardrobe with a rope around his neck. She immediately called police.
Ms Nuengruethai said he often complained about financial problems with his business overseas, but she never dreamed it would drive him to take his own life.
Police were investigating.
