A police hunt is on in Lampang in northern Thailand for a senior "tessaban" official who strangled his wife then fled after apparently failing to successfully hang himself from the banisters.
A two page will was found on a desk. 
Pol Capt Bunchuay Lamanee of the Serm Ngam police responded to a call after a woman was found dead in bed on the third floor of a building.
Rungthiwa, 35, was dressed in t-shirt and underpants and had been dead about six hours. Marks on her neck indicated she had been strangled. 
A two page note left on a desk identified the killer as Niran, 51, the head of the tessaban or local authority in the Sop Prap district of Lampang. He wrote that he was the victim's husband.

On the banisters was a knotted green nylon rope. It is thought that Niran tried to hang himself but failed and fled the scene. 
He is now being hunted. 
Forensics were poring over the scene gathering all evidence including DNA samples, said Sanook. 
The body of the victim was taken for a detailed autopsy at Serm Ngam Hospital
