Kiwi suicide from 20 floors, Patong hotel.

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Thursday 29 December 2016, 11:02AM

PHUKET: A 55-year-old New Zealand man was found dead behind a hotel in Patong before dawn this morning (Dec 29), the victim of an apparent suicide after falling 20 floors from his hotel room, say police.
Security at the Royal Paradise Hotel notified police of the man’s death at 4:10am, after Patong Municipality garbage collectors found the man’s crumpled body behind the hotel.

The man checked into the hotel alone on Tuesday (Dec 27), said Maj Theerasak Boonsang of the Patong Police.

“We checked the hotel CCTV and the man* returned to the hotel alone at 3:11am,” Maj Theerasak said.
“He took the elevator to the 20th floor and entered his room unaccompanied. There were no signs of fighting in the room and it seems that nothing has been stolen,” he added.

“We will investigate this further, but at this stage we believe the man committed suicide,” Maj Theerasak noted.

Interesting they jump to the suicide conclusion without considering it might have been an accident... and can only make it harder for the family.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.
