This is some weird ish.
According to Mail Online
A retired NASA official who served on the Apollo Navigation Team has been found dead with a rope around his neck and genitals inside a home in Thailand, it emerged today.
Police found the body of Paul Milford Muller, 76, on Tuesday in the Tak Province of the country and suspect he had been dead for about three days.
There were no signs that Muller, 76, had been assaulted, according to the Bangkok Post.
He appeared to have died from asphyxiation or from a heart attack after a drug overdose, police said.
His body has been sent for an autopsy while officials try to contact his family.
Muller worked for ten years at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, and served on the Apollo Navigation Team.
He wrote three books, including one called Suicide Inc., which he described as a ‘romantic and erotic thriller’. On the cover of the novel is a picture of a noose.
He grew up in Los Angeles and had a PhD in Physics/Astronomy.
Muller had recently joined Twitter and last posted on April 19.
On his bio on his website he states: ‘I write for personal enjoyment and work diligently to share with others. I respect readers and accept that you are the true judges of what we do.
‘I live alone in the highlands of Thailand, but have many interesting Thai friends.’
According to his publishing company’s website, Muller was single, and ‘lived with a mature family with whom he had a relationship for some years, in a modern home in the Thai style that he built on the outskirts of a farming village near Nakhon Sawan’.
Muller is the joint recipient of the Magellanic Premium Gold Medal of the American Philosophical Society (APS), which is often described as the ‘Nobel Prize’ for navigation.
We hope he wasn’t into that erotic thrill ish. R.I.P.
