Pattaya police were called after an unidentified foreigner was found dead on his knees slumped up against a beer bar pole in the area behind the Marine Hotel in South Pattaya last night.
The man – aged about 50 – had been in that position more than two hours before anyone thought to inquire about his welfare, reported Sanook.
He had no ID, was wearing a yellow shirt, grey shorts and sandals. He had a cap and earphones still in.
There was no sign of a struggle or marks on the body and police are mystified as to why he died.
The body was taken to the morgue for autopsy. – Sanook
