According to authorities, Pattaya police received a report of the incident at approximately 2:06 AM on February 4th. They rushed to the scene at an unidentified hotel on Pattaya Third Road, along with a rescue team from the Sawang Boriboon Thammasathan Foundation.

At the hotel entrance, authorities discovered the lifeless body of the victim, a Swedish swim coach, 60, whose name was withheld pending his family notification. He had fallen from his room, located on the third floor, which is about 15 meters from the ground. The body sustained serious injuries, including various fractures.

Preliminary investigations revealed no signs of struggle on the victim’s body. However, the cause of the incident remains undetermined. Police are currently reviewing hotel CCTV footage for further insights, while the hospital is awaiting the arrival of the victim’s family to claim the body and arrange funeral rites in accordance with their religious customs.

Suicides, most likely (though this particular way of dispatching their targets was quite popular with some gangs in Europe 20-30 years ago), but what a trauma to those who have witnessed it all or had to deal with it immediately afterwards before the police arrived.

Or someone has taken classes from Putin on how to get rid of your enemy without leaving evidence 😲 

Although considering over the years that n some of the cases having been 'investigated" by the police where the jumpee's live in (Thia) lover or overnight companion had both been in the room, with the safe being left open and empty and the jumpee's wallet having being emptied too along with the smashed with clear signs of a struggle and STILL  "no crime was suspected" it seems the bar, historically anyway, was usually set quite low for finding much evidence of anything other than suicide anyway!

I know a few people that have killed themselves of different ages.....they've had demons they'd been fighting for a long time, it's not something you wake up one day and out of the blue decide to kill yourself.

Romanian Tourist Falls to Death from Pattaya Hotel Balcony

A 63-year-old Romanian tourist lost his life in a fall from the balcony of a 7-story hotel in Soi 5, Pattaya, on Friday morning, February 9th.

The incident was reported to Pattaya police around 9:30 AM. Police officers and rescue workers arrived at an unidentified hotel to find the lifeless body of the deceased, a 63-year-old Romanian man whose name was withheld pending family and embassy notification, in the garden area below the balcony.

The victim, clad only in black shorts, had sustained severe head injuries and dislocated limbs. Authorities cordoned off the scene before transporting the body to a nearby local hospital. The victim’s wife was present at the incident scene, visibly distraught by the tragic incident. She did not provide a statement to the press.

Ms. Somjai Benden, a 54-year-old employee of the hotel, stated that she was tending to her duties near the hotel pond when she heard a loud sound above her. Alarmed, she looked up to see the victim clinging to the railing of the 4th-floor balcony before losing his grip and plummeting to the ground below. Ms. Somjai immediately alerted the authorities.

The cause of the incident remains undetermined, and Pattaya police are currently conducting an investigation.
