On Friday 9 December 2016, a 51-year-old Swedish man was found dead in a hotel in the central of Ubon Ratchathani in Eastern Thailand. The police found no trace of struggle or abuse, and they suspect the man to having been dead for no more than 12 hours.
Police had to break down the door of a room on the second floor of the hotel that was not named. Inside, they found the dead Swede face up on the bed with both his wrists cut open.
The man had cuts to both wrists and elbow areas of both arms, and the police found a razor next to the toilet in the bathroom.
They found blood in the bathroom, on the bed and on the bedroom walls, but there was no sign of a struggle.
The police said that the Swedish man had entered the room on Sunday 4 December 2016, but had not been seen since the morning of Wednesday 7 December 2016.
The Embassy of Sweden in Bangkok has been contacted, and they are trying to trace down the man’s relatives.
