Christopher Vincent Arthur
Police in the northern province of Chiang Mai are investigating the death of a 45-year-old Australian man who was found dead in his condominium near the city centre.
A maid who works at the One Plus Condominium Klongchon 1> alerted her manager when she came across a foul and putrid odour coming from one of the guest rooms. The building manager entered room 821 on the 8th floor and found the decaying body of Christopher Vincent Arthur prostrate on the bed.
Local rescue workers and officers of Su Thep subdistrict, where the death occurred, went to Mr Arthur’s apartment to investigate the scene. One of the police inspectors, Pol Capt Amonchai Drangwadcharagun, said Mr Arthur was found face-down in his room. “There was blood coming out of his mouth and nose. The smell of decay was overpowering.” Several empty Thai whisky bottles were found in the room, he added.
Forensic investigators say there were no signs of a struggle and that heavy drinking is likely to have contributed to Mr Arthur’s death. Police estimated that the man had been dead for a week or more.
A staff member at the condominium reportedly said that Mr Arthur had been renting the room for almost a year and spent most of his time on his computer or in his room drinking.
Rescue volunteers sent Mr Arthur’s body to Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital where an autopsy is expected to establish the exact cause of death. Mr Arthur is survived by a wife and two children.
