Pol Lt Tawatchai Srimai, the duty officer of Kathu district police, Sunday revealed the death of the 52-year-old Norwegian whose name he gave as Frank Robert. He had been found by a housekeeper at Benjamas Housing Estate in Soi Saen Sabai near Patong beach, Sansanee Montree, 36.

Mrs Sansanee said on returning from cleaning up houses in the estate at about 3pm on Saturday she found her boss dead.

Police went to a two-storey luxury house on a 200 square wah plot to examine the body. The Norwegian was wearing a pair of shorts. There were no traces of injuries to the body. He was believed to have died three hours earlier.

Mrs Sansanee said her boss suffered from asthma and his condition might have deteriorated. She said he usually went to Phuket Hospital for treatment.

The housekeeper said Frank Robert told her that if he died he wanted her to tell the police that he had written a will kept in a safe in the house.

The will states that he wanted to donate his assets to foundations for the elderly and children in Phuket to show his gratitude to Thailand.

Mrs Sansanee said her boss arrived in Phuket more than 10 years ago and had bought 21 houses in Benjamas Housing Estate for rent to foreign tourists.

Police will call a meeting of all concerned to execute the will according to the Norwegian's wishes.
