Unidentified male

Pattaya police are trying to identify a middle-aged male foreigner who died after plunging down a condominium building in Pattaya Tuesday evening.

According to a report published by Manager Online, officers from Pattaya Provincial Police Station were notified about the death of a foreigner at around 21:30. Pattaya News, another Thai language source, wrote the incident occurred at 22:00.

Police officers and rescue volunteers arrived on the scene at Pattaya Beach Condominium in Chon Buri’s Bang Lamung district shortly later. They discovered the body of a male who officers believe to be a foreign national lying dead on a narrow concrete access next to the condominium building.

The man’s identity could not yet be determined since the wallet found in the deceased’s pocket only contained 70 baht in cash and no identification documents. Officers estimated the dead to be between 30-35 years old and about 165-170cm tall. A tattoo of a dragon ranging from the right arm to the shoulder was mentioned as a characteristic that might help to identify the deceased.

An initial investigation revealed that the man, who had not been a tenant at the apartment, had entered the condominium’s premises several minutes prior the incident. He was last seen alive purchasing a bottle of beer at a local store. About 10 minutes later, a tourist discovered the man who at that time had passed away already.

Police are now in the process of viewing CCTV footage recorded nearby and try to determine the man’s identity. An autopsy has been scheduled to verify the cause of death ultimately.
