Chalong Police Chief Col Paksayot Thanongsak who attended the scene said, “At the scene, police found that a light and fan were turned on in the room. The deceased man was found wearing a white T-shirt with blue short pants and covered in a blanket beside the bed in the bedroom.

“Police did not find any bruising or signs of a struggle on his body and estimated that he had died within the past 48 hours judging by the condition of the body,” added Col Paksayot.

Police search the house and found Thai and US currency, a handgun, a gold necklace and more than a dozen Buddhist amulets, but did not clarify the amount of money that was found.
