Manuel Gallardo Garcia
On Monday night, police and medics were called to a central Pattaya apartment following the discovery of a recently deceased Spanish resident.
Officers and medics arrived at the apartment complex, located in Soi 16 off the Central Pattaya Road and made their way to the room known to be occupied by Mr. Manuel Gallardo Garcia aged 53 from Spain.
According to his estranged girlfriend, Khun Chutimar aged 47, she became concerned that Mr. Garcia failed to call her on Monday as planned. The pair had been together for 11 years and have a daughter, but recently split but remained in daily contact. The split is thought to have been caused by allegations Mr. Garcia drank heavily on regular occasions which led to heated arguments between the couple.
She went to Mr. Garcia’s room on Monday and noticed the bathroom door was locked. She looked through a grill and saw the body of Mr. Garcia on the floor and immediately called the Police.
It was estimated he had been dead for about 12 hours and appears to have fallen and sustained a fatal head injury which may have been the result of intoxication, according to Police Investigators.
The death has been recorded as an accident although police will wait for the results of a post-mortem examination which should reveal the exact cause of death, before they close the case.
