A 51 year old Italian man apparently shot himself dead in a top end Bangkok condo on Sunday night.
He left a suicide note that appeared to be to a Thai woman.
The maid found the body of Giovanni Battista Montesanti when she came to do the cleaning on Monday morning at room 198/67 on the 17th floor of a 36 story building between Sois 4 and 6 on Thong Lor, Sukhumvit 55.
Thong Lor cops were soon on the scene and found the victim in bed with his face covered by a pillow and cloth and a revolver still in his right hand. The gun was resting by the left armpit.
He was dressed all in black.
On the bedside table was the TV remote, a bottle of water, a phone, the gun’s case and a note.
The note said in English: “Dear K. Ann, I am very sorry. I shot (myself) in my bedroom yesterday. I do not know if I am dead or not. I hope yes. Please call my best friend Silvio.”
Contact details of the friend followed with comments that his friend would sort out the finances.
Police put it down to stress and sent the body for autopsy and attempted to contact the relatives, reported Manager.
