PATTAYA – July 23, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]; At 3 p.m., Pol. Capt. Pitak Nernsang, official on duty of Muang Pattaya police station, received a report that a foreign man had died of unknown causes in his room, number 606, sixth floor, Pattaya Tower condominium, number 133, soi 4, Pattaya Beach Road, moo 9, Nongprue, Banglamoong. A police team went to check with a rescue team from Sawan Boriboon Thammasathan foundation Pattaya.

In the room, they found Mr. Walter Carl Bolf, a 79-year-old American, lying on his back on the floor at the end of the bed. He was shirtless, wearing black and white shorts. His body had a green hue and there were no signs of injuries. It appeared he had died between two to three hours ago. After searching his room, police found some antibiotic pills, but nothing else unusual.

Mr. Pimolrit Kanjanodilok, 43, who discovered the body, said he was the driver for Mr. Walter. He said Mr. Walter had been an English teacher in his home town, but had been living in Thailand for 19 years. Mr. Walter had also been a volunteer English teacher for handicapped people in Phramahathai Muang Pattaya center, but he later quit the work because he had heart disease.

Mr. Pimolrit told police that he had come to see Mr. Walter and knocked on his door, but Mr. Walter did not answer, so Mr. Pimolrit used a reserve key to open door and found him lying dead.

After their initial investigation, police suspect that a heart attack might have killed the victim. However, because he is a foreigner, the police sent his body to have an autopsy at the forensic police department at Royal Thai police hospital, to find the real cause of death. Pending the results, they will report his death to the embassy.
