CHIANG MAI, Thailand — Homicide and drug overdoses have been ruled out in the mysterious deaths of six foreign tourists and a Thai guide earlier this year, say authorities in northern Thailand.
But the officials from the city of Chiang Mai told foreign consular officials on Thursday that investigations into the seven deaths are only halfway done.
The victims were women from New Zealand, France and the United States, a Canadian man, a British couple and a Thai tourist guide, six of whom were staying at the same hotel in January and February.
An investigation by New Zealand TV3's "60 Minutes" program suggested the chemical spray chlorpyrifos, used to kill bedbugs, may have been responsible.
