At about 3 am on 12th November, the police, and the Sawangboriboon rescue team, responding to a distress call from a condo owner, rushed to Room 518/322-323, 5th floor, Building B1 of the Niran Grand Condo on Soi Arunothai, Central Pattaya, to find a dead Dutch man, Mr. Jocob Marinus (75), lying face up, dead on his bed.

The dead body was clad in only blue underpants. His mouth was full of saliva and a small piece of bacon was in it. The police, however, found no evidence of a struggle or any signs of foul play.

On inspecting the room, they found a couple pieces of bacon and some medicine on the bedside table. It was estimated that he had been dead for about 7 days.

         Police questioned Mr.Prangchompoo Jarungpan (27), a Krateoy neighbor of Mr. Marinus, the deceased man, who explained that Mr. Marinus had been living alone for many years. A week ago, he met Mr. Marinus in front of his room and was told that he was going to buy some bacon.

            Mr.Prangchompoo said that he had not seen Mr. Marinus for several days until he noticed a foul odor coming from the room. He, eventually, informed the security guard at the condo who then opened the door to the room, where Mr. Marinus’s body was discovered. 

 

Police will send the deceased’s body to the forensic laboratory at the Police Hospital for examination to ascertain the exact cause of death.The case will remain open until after an autopsy is conducted.
