Chris Stephen Naveen Rajit
A hand-written note hanging on the bathroom door of a Pattaya hotel room was anticipation enough for what would be found in the room. Inside, hotel staff discovered the dead body of Mr Chris Stephen Naveen Rajit, 28, laying on the floor with a slit throat.
The incident happened early Tuesday afternoon in a hotel on Pattaya Sai 3 in Bang Lamung district, Chon Buri province. According to the hotel operator, Mr Rajit, a Singaporean national, had rented the room for several days before and was supposed to checkout the same day before noon.
When hotel staff called the guest after he was due to check out, Mr Rajit said he was packing and hung up the phone. Further attempts to contact the man failed and a hotel employee went up the 18th floor and entered room number 1818.
Hanging on the closed bathroom door, he then saw a piece of paper saying “WARNING / DEAD BODY INSIDE / sorry about the shock”. Officers of Pattaya Police Station then found the body of Mr Rajit with a deep cut on his throat. A knife was discovered next to the body.
Police searched the room and found no evidence it had been burgalised. An initial investigation concluded that he committed suicide and the body was sent to the Institute of Forensic Medicine of Police General Hospital for autopsy.
