Douglas Barry Wilson

A 55-year-old man from New Zealand was pronounced dead today. He had jumped from the 20th floor of the five-star hotel in Phuket.

Nobody suspected anything when a middle-aged man from New Zealand entered the main door of the Royal Paradise Hotel & Spa hotel at 03:11 and continued straight to the elevator.

When the elevator later came to a halt on the 20th floor where he lived, Mr Wilson, 55, was filmed by a security camera quietly entering his room. These were the last scenes in which Mr Wilson was seen alive.

About an hour later, one of the men who were responsible for removing the garbage at the back of the hotel was shocked. “He was laying there, it seemed that all bones in his body were broken,” the man remembered his encounter.

After the men had called the security guards, one of them checked Mr Wilson’s pulse and realised there was none.

A security guard was quickly on the scene but felt that he no longer had a pulse. When police finally arrived, a doctor from the nearby Patong Hospital agreed and pronounced Mr Douglas Barry Wilson dead.
