Thai boyfriend faints in tears as Frenchman, 80, leaps to his death

Thai media Pattaya Eastern News reported that police in Pattaya suspect that an 80 year old French man ended his own life by jumping from the 17th floor balcony of his condominium.

Michel Hostailler was found dead on the ground with multiple fractures. He was not wearing shoes.

Pattaya’s chief of tourist police Lt Col Piyapong Ensarn was on the scene with other officers.

Mr Hostailler’s boyfriend Siwaporn Pala, 38, had to be treated by rescue services at the scene after bursting into tears by the body and fainting.

After recovering his composure Siwaporn said that he and the victim had shared room 965 together for about a year. His boyfriend had shown no signs of depression though he did have some problems with an ex wife in France.

Yesterday morning Siwaporn said that he went to the temple to give alms and make merit and embraced his boyfriend affectionately on the way out. Everything was normal and there was no indication that he was going to end his life.

Police found no signs of a struggle or anything out of place in the room.

But they found a note in French. The contents were not revealed in the story on Facebook.

The cops said they believed that stress from some problem faced by the victim led him to commit suicide.

A full autopsy will be carried out at the Police Hospital and the embassy has been informed.

The Jomtien condo was not named in the report.
