On July 16, at 10am, Pol.Lt.Col.Phong-sawas Wongwarn, Pattaya Investigator, was notified that a foreigner had leapt off a building, seemingly to commit suicide. The deceased’s body was found on the roof deck of the old “Heart to Heart Karaoke”, located behind “Mark Land Hotel”, Soi 1, Pattaya Beach Road. Pol.Col.Nopadol Wongnom, Superintendent and Pol.Lt.Col. Chartchai Ruen-thawin, Deputy Superintendent with a police team, together with a doctor from Banglamung Hospital and Sawang Boriboon Rescue accordingly went to the scene of the incident to investigate.

The incident had occurred at a two storey building, which was originally a karaoke shop, but it currently belongs to the Royal Palace Hotel that intend to use it as a staff residence. Police found the dead body of Mr. Christopher Kerry Rozier (41), an American citizen, who was a driver of DMV California Company, lying dead on the roof deck. He was wearing a blue shirt and long, brown shorts. Some of his bones were broken and his head was badly injured. Police found a letter in his short’s pocket in his hand writing, asking the finder to contact Miss Sujitra Rosane and Mr. Dick, his close relatives in the US, saying that he would like his body to be cremated in Thailand because he loved the country and did not want to return to the USA.

In addition, there was a room key from R-Con Residence, located in Soi Bua-Khao in his pocket. Police went to investigate the room and found two empty bottles of foreign whisky and some clothes belonging to the deceased. Police kept them as evidence.

Initially, police assumed that Mr. Rozier was distraught and did not want to go back to his country. Apparently, he had had too much to drink and got drunk. He evidently went to the Mark Land Hotel building and had gone up to the parking lot, which is above the 10th floor and leapt down to his death. Police sent his body to the forensic laboratory of the Police hospital to be examined and the American embassy will be informed.
