Police are yet to confirm the cause of death of a German man who was found lifeless at his home in Rawai yesterday morning (Feb 12).
Police and rescue workers arrived were called to the home, in Soi Hayaek, near Chalong Circle, at 11am.
“We found no sign of assault or no injury on the body,” Maj Thada said.
“However, the body smelled strongly of alcohol and there were empty bottles of alcohol all over the house. We also saw some trace of vomit on the bed.”
Among the evidence present were empty bottles of Thai rice whiskey lao kao.
Paijit Buthchan, who said she was a friend of the man, told police in a statement that she stayed with the him from time time.
“When she called him at 11:50pm on Thursday, he said he was drinking with his German friends, so she did go to see him that night,” Maj Thada said.
“She also said that he drank every night and hardly ate. This morning (Feb 12), she discovered the body on the bed when she came to his place to take a shower, so she called for help,” explained Maj Thada.
“The body was taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital for doctors to determine the cause of death,” he added.
The German Embassy in Bangkok has been notified, Maj Thada said, but added that he had yet to confirm that the man’s family had been notified of the man’s death.
