Alan Patrick Mouncey
Thai police are investigating the death of a Dunedin-born man after his body was discovered in the bathroom of a tourist resort in Pattaya, Chon Buri province. Alan Patrick Mouncey, 39, was found with a head wound on the floor of his hotel bathroom where he had stayed at.
Mr Mouncey, a British passport holder, was discovered in his third floor apartment by a housekeeper at P Place Apartments, Pattaya People reported. CCTV was checked and Mr Mouncey was seen to arrive at his room with a Thai woman at approximately 3:00 at night, Pattaya One found out.
He left 20 minutes later with her, and after seeing her leave on a motorbike taxi, Mr Mouncey was seen to re-enter his apartment alone. It was confirmed that no other individuals entered the apartment prior to the discovery of his body.
It was reported that Mr Mouncey’s body was sent to Police Forensic Institute in Bangkok for a post-mortem examination. Police are now speculating that Mr Mouncey may have suffered from an acute medical problem which caused him to collapse.
“It is thought he was able to recover but the head-injury sustained in the fall may have caused his eventual death,” reports said. The British Embassy is involved in the case.
