Norwegian Dies In Hotel Room In Pattaya

Police believe that a Norwegian man found
dead in a hotel room with a fractured skull had fallen and injured himself
while under the influence of narcotics.
    Officers led by Pol Col Noppadon Wongnom,
superintendent at Pattaya Police Station, together with rescue workers from
Sawang Boriboon Foundation and a physician from Banglamung Hospital were called
out at 10:40 a.m. on June 15, 2008 to a hotel on Pattaya Second Road, at Soi
Yamoto, writes Pattaya Mail.
    The property was a four-story building, the
ground floor being used as a restaurant and bar, and the upper floors as a
hotel. On the third floor in room number 6 was the body of Anders Conradi, a
49-year-old Norwegian citizen. The corpse was lying on its back beside the
door, and was wearing blue jeans without a shirt. The face and chest were dark
blue, the skull was fractured, both hands were flexed, and there were several
needle marks from injections on the arm. There was no trace of fighting in the
room. The physician estimated the man had been dead for no more than 24 hours.
    Mrs Sunanta Reukraksanee, a 43-year-old
cashier said that the deceased had rented the room since June 7. He had brought
his Thai and foreign friends to his room regularly. The night before the
discovery of his body, a compatriot named Tom, who was a regular visitor,
arrived and knocked on the door. There was no answer, so Tom assumed he was
out. The next morning Tom returned, and when no one replied to the knock on the
door he obtained a passkey and entered the room, where he found the body.
Noppadon said that it
appeared the deceased had been taking drugs and had fallen down, breaking his
skull. An autopsy will be held to confirm the cause of death.
