MAE SOT, Thailand, May 29 (UPI) -- Paul Milford Muller, a retired NASA official who served on the Apollo Navigation Team, was found dead in a house in Tak Province, Thailand, police said.

He was found with a rope tied around his genitals and waist, and another rope around his neck, hanging from a bedroom doorknob. Crystal methamphetamine and several sex toys were found in the room, Police Col. Ekarat Intasueb, chief of the Mae Sot, Thailand, police station, said Tuesday.

Police said he had been dead about three days before he was found, and there was no sign he had been assaulted, the Bangkok Post reported Wednesday.

Muller, 76, who lived in Thailand, worked at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology and was the author of several books, including "Suicide Inc.," described on his website as a "romantic and erotic thriller," the Houston Chronicle reported Wednesday.
