A 73-year-old Italian man was found dead in his condominium room in Central Pattaya Tuesday, police said.
Pol Lt Yom Prommasart, an interrogator of Pattaya police station, said the body of Antonio Cavaliere was found in his room at the Nine Carats Condominium on Soi Arunothai in tambon Nong Prue of Bang Lamung district.
Yom was on duty when he was alerted that the body was found so he rushed to the scene with rescuers of Sawang Boribun Thammasathan Foundation. Cavaliere was staying in the room No 89 on the third floor alone. He was found lying on his back on the bed. He was wearing a white t-shirt and gray shorts.
Yom said the Italian appeared to have died four or five days before his body was found. Officials did not find any wound on his body and there were no trace of fighting in the room either. Yom said there was no sign of theft as Cavaliere’s belongings were still kept neatly. But the toilet room appeared in a mess, indicating that he might be suffering from vomiting and diarrhea before he died.
A maid of the condominium told police that she noticed stench from Cavaliere’s room for a few days earlier. Tuesday morning, she suspected that something might happen to the Italian so she alerted a condominium male staff who climbed to peek into the room from the next room’s balcony. The staff saw the body lying on the bed.
Yom said police believe the Italian succumbed to his chronic ailments. His body was sent to the Forensic Medicine Institute at the Police General Hospital for an autopsy.
