Waltraut Margot Konradi

An elderly German woman has died in her rented apartment on Koh Samui Tuesday evening from what police assume to be natural causes, Daily News reported.

Koh Samui Provincial Police officers confirmed the death of 85-year-old Waltraut Margot Konradi, who was found dead lying on the bed in her rented apartment in Ang Thong subdistrict. A pack of cigarettes and a nearly full bottle of aspirin pills were seen on a nightstand.

The body had been found earlier by a maid who Ms Konradi employed to look after her. She told police that, on the day of her death, Ms Konradi had complained of a stomach ache and gone to bed after taking seven aspirin. When she went to check on her later that day, she found her gasping for air and then passing out. Medical workers who arrived shortly after were not able to revive the woman.

Five days before her death, Ms Konradi expressed her love for Thailand and the famous holiday island and asked her landlady for “permission” to die in her room. “She had already been renting the apartment for eight months,” she told police later. “And seeing as she was old I didn’t think much of it. So I just said ‘of course’.”

A post-mortem examination at Koh Samui Hospital has been scheduled and the German embassy been contacted.
