A Japanese executive of Panasonic Industrial Devices Thailand was found dead in the bathtub of his Bangkok condominium room this morning.
Thonglor Police Station was informed about a possible death inside the Grand Heritage Thonglor at 8:30 Sunday morning by a manager of the condominium, Pol Capt Danuwat Bunjaem said. Officers and medical workers from King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital together with Poh Teck Tung rescue volunteers arrived shortly after at the hotel in Soi Thonglor 13 in Bangkok’s Wattana district.
When they opened the door to room 21/30 on the 4th floor and inspected the premises, they found the body of 55-year-old Japanese Yasushi Higashi lying dead in the tub inside the bathroom. Mr Yasushi reportedly worked as an executive of Panasonic Industrial Devices Thailand in Bangkok before his death.
Pol Capt Danuwat and other investigating officers did not find any signs of a struggle on the scene and revealed that the door had been locked from the inside.
To determine the cause of death, the body has been sent to King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital. However, Pol Capt Danuwat assumes that Mr Yasushi might have died from a pre-existing medical condition.
