Patong Police Capt Sineenart Cherdchootrakunthong responded to a 191 call at 8:45pm yesterday where it was reported that a foreign man had been found dead inside a room at the Delicious Residence in Nanai Rd, Patong.

Capt Sineenart arrived at the scene with her team and was led to room 127 located on the second floor of the building. Inside the room was the body of a 63-year-old man Frenchman lying face down in the bathroom in a pool of blood.

In the police report it states that pools of blood were found all over the bathroom floor and sink, and next to the body was a 12 inch knife.

Capt Sineenart and Doctor Supawadee Tamluang from Patong Hospital examined the body and confirmed that they found a deep slash wound going from the man’s neck to his left ear. There were no other signs of assault on the body and also no signs of a robbery in the room.

According to the police report, the hotel manager (name withheld) told police that the man had checked in to the property alone on Nov 4 and was due to check out on Nov 30.

Unit - 27

At 2pm yesterday a friend of the deceased (no name provided) knocked on his room but got no answer. The friend left and returned again at 8:30pm. He knocked on his friend’s door again, but again he got no reply so asked the husband of the hotel manager, Mr Johan Baest, to check the room.

When they opened the door they discovered the lifeless body of the Frenchman in the bathroom so they called police and rescue workers.

Capt Sineenart said that she was told by the friend that the deceased had got divorced from his wife prior to leaving for Thailand and that this may have caused the man stress leading to him committing suicide.

The body was taken to Patong Hospital for doctors to thoroughly examine the body again. The French Embassy has been notified of the incident. Police will continue with their investigation.

stefscapa: Congratulations, you just got the 'titel' of clown from that Joe12.
More insulting titels will follow
Don't feel upset. Just ignore him.
It is not a person who can be seen serious.
Just put a cordon sanitaire on this khun Joe12. ( suggestion)
