Lt Thanakarn Utchanaratsamee of the Patong Police was notified of the death by staff at a hotel on Rat-U-Thit 200 Pi Rd at 10:30am.

Kusoldharm rescue workers and police arrived at the scene to the body of Karl-Heinz Prinz Zu Hohenlohe-Oehringen Geb. Sassen, on the toilet in the bathroom.

He had a wound was on his head believed to have been sustained as he collapsed.

An undisclosed number of beer cans were found in the room, and police believe that Mr Prinz Zu Hohenlohe-Oehringen died at least six hours before his body was found.

And don't you think the worse are those who complain about someone else "complaining".... damn, now I'm just like you. Looks like the anti-Kurt gang has a new member... or has one simply changed his/her nickname.

The usual complaining about everything! What a pain in the ass!

Kurt, first, please check your email and inbox and junk box.....
Second, the man had already been named by another of the island\\\'s English language news outlets.
Anything else?
