A 60 year old British National appears to have hung himself from a toilet door at his South Pattaya Hotel Room.
On Thursday Afternoon Police and rescue services were called to the Eden Hotel in Soi 17 off Pattaya Third Road and were directed to a 3rd floor room where the body of the British occupant was found by a Hotel cleaner.
The dead man was identified as Mr. John Aloysius McQuade from Staines in UK. It appears he hung himself and after a check of the CCTV it appears he entered his room at approximately 11pm on Wednesday Night and was alone. No other person entered or left his room prior to the discovery of the body of Mr. McQuade on Thursday.
It was estimated he had been dead for less than 2 hours and no evidence of any disturbance was seen inside the room.
The death has been recorded as a suicide pending the results of a post-mortem examination and the British Embassy in Bangkok have been informed.
