A SECOND Australian man has been found dead in Southeast Asia.

Kane Scriven, 40, died in Laos after a night of partying and heavy drinking on New Year’s Day with his mate Nick Parkin.

The NT News understands that Mr Parkin, 39, was found dead in his Sinnakhone Hotel room in the capital Vientiane on January 4, after Mr Scriven was found dead on January 1.


It is not clear whether the deaths of Kane Scriven and Nick Parkin are connected but the men, who were holidaying together in Laos, were found dead within days of each other.


It is believed that both the man's deaths may have been drug-related.


The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade confirmed the deaths late last night but would not confirm if Mr Parkin was found in a hotel room or whether the deaths were connected.


Mr Parkin’s family in Perth have been notified.


Both men worked as crewmen for Workboats Northern Australia in Darwin and were holidaying in Laos.


Mr Parker's brother Timothy posted a prayer mentioning the death on his Facebook page.


Jaimie Hildebrand, a friend of Mr Parkin, said she was hoping to hear this was a prank.


"Love you with all my heart," she said.

Another friend, Luke Martin, said Mr Parkin was a great man and friend.


"Having known you has been an absolute pleasure and I'm sad to hear your (sic) gone, but so thankful for the fantastic memories," he said.


The men’s employer also posted this tribute on its Facebook page for the pair: “Everyone at Workboats Northern Australia is shocked by the sudden deaths of Kane Scriven and Nicholas Parkin.”


“We are supporting their close friends who still work with us and are respecting their requests to grieve in peace.

“Our thoughts and condolences go to the families of Kane and Nick. RIP.”


On Tuesday, the NT News reported that friends had not heard from Mr Parkin since January 2 when he informed them of his friend’s death.
