Alain Georges Robert Recon
Five days after his death, the body of a 54-year-old French dance instructor was found in his apartment in Pattaya. Police ruled out foul play.
Officers of Mueang Pattaya Provincial Police Station found the naked body of Alain-Georges-Robert Recon after being notified of a “suspicious smell” emanating from a room in a condominium in Pattaya’s Bang Lamung district.
“The report came in at approximately 11:00,” Pol Capt Sombat Gaeomunmuk said in an official statement later that day. Police then proceeded to Nirun Condo in Soi Arunatai in central Pattaya. Rescue workers of the Sawang Boribun Foundation assisted the officers, Pol Capt Sombat said.
A manager of the condominium led police to room 521/225 in building D where officers found the deceased body of a man identified as Alain Georges Robert Recon, 54, from France. “The deceased was lying on the bed on his side,” Pol Capt Sombat said. “He did not wear any clothes.”
According to an initial police report, Mr Recon’s body was already in an advanced stage of decomposition. The stomach and other parts of the deceased were massively bloated, the report said. Police believe Mr Recon had been dead for at least five days.
An inspection of the room came up with no results indicating foul play. However, Pol Capt Sombat noted that officers “found a stash of muscle-building supplements fille in white generic containers”, including creatine, acetyl-L-carnitine and others.
Further investigation revealed that Mr Recon worked as a freelance dance instructor. “Neighbours often saw him exercising in the building’s pool area,” Pol Capt Sombat said. According to the condominium management, Mr Recon had been living alone since he rented the apartment on the 8th floor about three months ago.
Authorities have notified the French Embassy of Mr Recon’s death and organised the transport of his body to the General Police Hospital in Bangkok where a post-mortem examination is going to be conducted.
