Police were called to the Patong Merlin Hotel just after midnight, where a friend who was sharing the room with the Danish tourist told police that he came back to the room after 11pm (July 18) to find the deceased lying on the bed.

There were no signs of a struggle found on the man’s body or in the room, said Lt Col Jongserm Preecha of the Patong Police.

In the room was blood-cleaning equipment.

“His friend said the man had kidney disease,” Col Jongserm said.
