Christopher Vincent Arthur

Police in the northern province of Chiang Mai are investigating the death of a 45-year-old Australian. He was found dead in his condominium near the city centre.

A maid who works at the One Plus Condominium Klongchon 1 the gruesome discovery at 14:30 when she smelled a foul odour coming from the man’s room. After alerting the building manager, they entered the room with the number 821 on the 8th floor and found the body of Christopher Vincent Arthur lying motionless on the bed. An obituary published on confirmed the death.

Local rescue workers and officers of Su Thep subdistrict where the incident happened went to Mr Arthur’s apartment to inspect the scene. One of the inspecting officers, Pol Capt Amonchai Drangwadcharagun, said he was found with his face down. “There was blood coming out of his mouth and nose. The smell of decay was almost unbearable.” There were also several empty Thai whisky bottles in the room, he added.

Forensic police say there were no signs of a struggle and that heavy drinking might have contributed to Mr Arthur’s death. Police estimated that the man had been dead for not less than a week.

While investigating the case, a staff of the condominium said that Mr Arthur had been renting the room for almost a year. He reportedly spent most of his time alone in his room drinking and using his computer.

Rescue volunteers sent Mr Arthur’s body to Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital where an autopsy is supposed to establish an official cause of death. Mr Arthur left behind his wife Vicky and his children Sophie and Henry.
