Sven Schultz

Police on Koh Samui suspect that drugs found in the bungalow of a 45-year-old, Sven Schultz, a German national, to be the cause of his death. He was found in bed, naked on Friday early afteroon, Matichon reported.

According to Wasu Janpong, the 31-year-old owner of the bungalow resort in the Koh Samui’s Maret district near Lamai Beach, “Mr Schultz had checked in on August 19. He stayed alone, but often brought bar girls back to his room. He also drank a lot.” At 13:15 on Friday, Mr Wasu went to Mr Schultz’s bungalow to find out why he had failed to check out. Mr Wasu said, “Nobody answered, so I used my master key to open the door. I then saw Mr Schultz lying dead in his bed.”

Fifteen minutes later, officers from Bo Phut Provincial Police Station and members of the Tourist Police entered the bungalow to try and make sense of the scene that greeted them. “Except for his socks, Mr Schultz was completely naked,” investigating officer Pol Maj Udomsak Tappa told reporters. The bungalow floor was scattered with clothes of the deceased and next to his ear, police found a mobile phone.

“On the table, we saw several different pharmaceutical drugs,” Pol Maj Udomsak explained naming one of the drugs benzodiazepines. A yet unidentified white powder found in the room was also collected at the scene and submitted for analysis. They also bagged a bra and a beauty box. An emergency physician from Koh Samui Hospital estimated Mr Schultz had been dead for approximately seven to eight hours.

Investigator Pol Maj Udomsak said they suspect the drugs found in the room played a signifant role in the tourist’s death, but did not know the cause of death for sure because he may have died from an accidental overdose.  A post-mortem examination at Koh Samui Hospital has been scheduled to definitively determine the cause of death.
