Just after daybreak on Wednesday, Officers from Dongtan Police Station on Jomtien Beach were called to the Furama Jomtien Beach Hotel to investigate reports of a foreigner falling from a high floor.
Officers arrived and inspected the body of the man, who was wearing only boxer shorts. His name or nationality could not be determined but he did have a tattoo of a cartoon wolf on his arm and was carrying a mobile phone which is now being analyzed for clues as to who he is and why he fell. Police believe him to be of middle-eastern origin and aged between 40 and 45.
A forensic Doctor arrived at the scene and confirmed he had fallen from a high floor due to the extent of trauma sustained to him. The victim could not initially be identified by Hotel Staff. It is also thought he fell at around 10pm the previous night as a loud thud was heard by security guards who decided not to investigate. He went undiscovered until a Hotel Cleaner found the body close to the Swimming Pool area at daybreak.
Police are hoping to identify the man as soon as possible and determine if he is a guest at the hotel or not.
