Thai media reported that police went to the apartment in Soi Bong Koch 8 in Pattaya after being alerted at around 10pm on Wednesday. The man was found dead in his room on the third floor of the 8-storey apartment building.

The body the 58-year-old man was discovered by a female friend, who had knocked on his door several times but could not get an answer.
